Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Breitbart.com: “Dems Stop Travel Bans After Terror Suspects Caught at Border”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

House Democrats passed a plan on Wednesday that would make it increasingly difficult for any president to impose a travel ban to protect American citizens and would allow individuals to sue when a president imposes such a ban.

Titled the “No Ban Act,” the legislation would limit a president’s authority to issue travel bans without first consulting Congress and would open the process up to litigation by foreign nationals in the U.S. who are “harmed by such a restriction,” a summary of the plan notes.

The legislation would force the State Department, Department of Homeland Security, and the president to only issue travel bans “when required to address a compelling government interest” and even then, they would be required to “narrowly tailor the suspension to use the least restrictive means to achieve such an interest.”

Today, the House is taking action to ensure that no president or administration can ever again abuse its authority by waging discrimination on the basis of religion. The #NoBanAct restores the separation of powers by limiting executive action to issue future religious bans.

House Democrats’ passage of the plan comes after a report this month revealed that two illegal aliens from Yemen were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border. Following background checks, both were found to be listed on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and No-Fly List.
