As the pandemic gains steam around the world Congress somehow thinks this is the right time to put bureaucratic roadblocks on the government’s ability to regulate travel from abroad. 

Here’s a novel idea: how about we work on mitigation of the epidemic quickly burning through our country before we worry about letting in even more people whose health may be suspect. 

The Feds are sorely trying my otherwise cherubic demeanor. 


https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/2214?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22National+Origin-Based+Antidiscrimination+for+Nonimmigrants%22%5D%7D&r=1&s=1


Shown Here:
Reported to House, Part I (03/05/2020)

National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants Act or the NO BAN Act

This bill imposes limitations on the President's authority to suspend or restrict aliens from entering the United States and terminates certain presidential actions implementing such restrictions. It also prohibits religious discrimination in various immigration-related decisions, such as whether to issue an immigrant or non-immigrant visa, unless there is a statutory basis for such discrimination.

The President may temporarily restrict the entry of any aliens or class of aliens after the Department of State determines that the restriction would address specific and credible facts that threaten U.S. interests such as security or public safety. 

The bill also imposes limitations on such restrictions, such as requiring the President, State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to (1) only issue a restriction when required to address a compelling government interest, and (2) narrowly tailor the suspension to use the least restrictive means to achieve such an interest. 

Before imposing a restriction, the State Department and DHS shall consult with Congress. The State Department and DHS shall report to Congress about the restriction within 48 hours of the restriction's imposition. If such a report is not made, the restriction shall immediately terminate.

Individuals or entities present in the United States and unlawfully harmed by such a restriction may sue in federal court. 

DHS may suspend the entry of aliens traveling to the United States on a commercial airline that failed to comply with regulations related to detecting fraudulent travel documents.

I sorted the first one Glupa.  All you have to do is  select 'edit post' from the 'post options' at the top right of the post.  Then highlight the text and press the symbol above the box A with a teardrop on its right leg.

Click on/select light grey. And then finally hit 'update post'.

I left the second post for you to practise on.
