(UnitedVoice.com) – When former President Donald Trump took office, he implemented a travel ban on countries that had histories of supporting terrorism. It was one of the ways he tried to keep America safe. Democrats were furious about it, even accusing the president of putting a “Muslim ban” in place. Now the Left is trying to limit that presidential power.
On Wednesday, April 21, the House of Representatives voted along party lines to advance the National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants (NO BAN) Act. The bill is a response to Trump’s travel ban and it would limit a president’s authority to issue future bans that would prevent foreigners from entering the country. Pelosi celebrated on Twitter, completely ignoring that the Supreme Court literally said the bans are not an abuse of presidential authority.
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.

The president has an obligation to keep the country safe from those who wish to harm it. The Supreme Court upheld the travel ban because it was “squarely within” the president’s authority. The Left’s attempt to limit that power could very well put the country in danger.
