Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday that the House will consider legislation in the coming weeks to repeal the Trump administration’s travel ban on several predominantly Muslim countries.

Pelosi’s announcement came on the third anniversary of Trump signing orders to suspend immigration from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia in his first week in office.

The article goes on to state the following:

Pelosi said that the House would take up legislation authored by Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) to repeal the Trump administration’s travel ban and limit the president from establishing future restrictions unless the administration provides specific evidence to justify it and consults with Congress. The bill, which Chu introduced last April, would also amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to explicitly prohibit discrimination based on religion.

Pelosi released the following statement Monday morning, tweeting a link to a press release on her website:

“Three years ago, in a stunning act of callousness and discrimination, President Trump and his Administration issued an outrageous travel ban, targeting majority-Muslim nations and undermining our values, our security and our Constitution.

“Today, reports indicate that the Administration is once again preparing to expand its dangerous travel ban, threatening key international relationships and jeopardizing our ability to fight terrorism and extremism at home and abroad. President Trump and his Administration’s continued disdain for our nation’s national security and our founding ideals of liberty and justice dishonor our proud immigrant heritage and the diversity that strengthens and enriches our communities. Despite the Administration’s hateful policies and dangerous rhetoric, this fundamental truth remains: immigrants make America more American.

“House Democrats continue to stand opposed to President Trump’s cruel, un-American travel ban in all of its iterations. In the coming weeks, the House Judiciary Committee will mark up and bring to the Floor the NO BAN Act to prohibit religious discrimination in our immigration system and limit the President’s ability to impose such biased and bigoted restrictions. In his last address as President, Ronald Reagan warned that ‘If we ever close the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost.’ House Democrats are working tirelessly to uphold our role as a global leader and a beacon of hope and opportunity for countless people around the world.”

Rep. Judy Chu, who authored the bill, declared in a Twitter post Monday, “White nationalists like Stephen Miller think America belongs only to white people. Clearly they are wrong. And so is the cruel Muslim Ban. On the 3rd anniversary of this hateful policy, I’m proud to stand with Sen. @ChrisCoons to announce a markup of our #NoBanAct!”

Senator Chris Coons tweeted after participating in the announcement of the bill, “For 3 years, President Trump’s #MuslimBan has sent the wrong message to our allies around the world about what we stand for as a country. We must pass the #NoBanAct now. #RepealTheBan.”

Coons said in another tweet, “Speaking NOW in front of the Capitol to make it clear that President Trump’s #MuslimBan does not reflect our values as a nation. We must pass the #NoBanAct to #RepealTheBan.”
