On Wednesday, the House passed legislation that would limit executive authority to issue future travel bans like the one imposed by former President Trump against several Muslim-majority countries. The legislation, abbreviated to the NO BAN Act, would explicitly prohibit religious discrimination in immigration-related decisions. Any immigration restrictions could only be issued by the executive branch if there is a “compelling government interest.” The State Dept. and DHS would have to consult with Congress and provide specific evidence justifying the immigration restriction and its proposed duration before imposing it.
