The House Judiciary Committee voted, 22-10, to terminate President Donald Trump's expanded travel ban and rein in presidential authority to issue such travel restrictions
The legislation would void all of Trump's executive actions establishing travel restrictions.It would also limit the president's powers under Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which says the president can suspend entry of foreigners deemed “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” Under the bill, presidents would be required in the future to consult with the secretaries of State and Homeland Security before exercising this power. The secretary of State would have to affirm, "based on credible facts," that a barred class of foreigners poses risks to public safety, security, human rights or other factors. Congress would receive updated notifications throughout the duration of the travel restrictions. Republicans on the committee said that the legislation would usurp the power of the president. The bill "effectively eviscerates the ability of the administration to take quick and decisive action to protect our homeland when concerns arise," ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) said. A Republican amendment to return decision-making power from the secretary of State to the president was defeated in committee. Seven days after he took office, Trump signed a controversial Read more: POLITICO
He interrupted our plans to cruise through the Keys, get off for a day and then on to Cuba for 2 days. He is not fit for the office and if he had been hired by the corporate world he would have been fired. A loser in every way possible and Rogue Republicans give him the world ! GOOD What a f..joke The House. This means nothing.
FrancisWegner Bet that really pissed him off. neal_katyal Next they will put a muzzle on The Orange Headed Mutt! SethAbramson Excellent! neal_katyal It doesn’t matter he’s going to say make me. gtconway3d Hopefully this is the beginning of of the return to normalcy. varda_friedman Why would republicans not approve this? Because their king will be mad and retaliate against them. SenateGOP HouseGOP do your job for the people not what the president wants. Ugh
Alex Jones says White House insider told him Trump will pardon Roger Stone after sentencingConspiracy theorist Alex Jones told his radio audience Tuesday that a White House insider said President Donald Trump plans to pardon his former campaign adviser Roger Stone, currently awaiting sentencing on multiple felony charges related to Russian interference in the 2016 election. And he'll still be a felon. Remember, accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt. (Burdick v. United States, 236 U.S. 79 (1915)) Of course he will. And Manafort and Flynn as well Folks, how are you giving Mr. Jones any press at all? Please stop!
varda_friedman Wow finally something Stand by for rage-tweets..... So what 22-10? Does this mean there were some GOP defectors? neal_katyal Great! But what happens when it gets to the Senate? It sits on Mitch McConnell's desk. Like hundreds of other bills. 😡 McConnell & Senate Republicans will shelf it.
MarcVegan Names, can we see who voted against? 'The House Judiciary Committee voted, 22-10, to terminate President Donald Trump's expanded travel ban' 'not expected to clear the Republican-controlled Senate.' Importing Mexican Heroin and Chinese Corona is racist. CatzCatems It will probably go to McConnell’s graveyard.
Bahahaha even if you had the senate he'd veto you
Twitter reacts to Trump tweet of Larry David mocking Trump supportersPresident Trump tweeted a scene from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' as if it was a compliment to his supporters but it was actually mocking them, and Twitter took notice. Actually it was kind of funny... calm down Trumps helicopter is green ... 😂😂😂 can’t fix stupid 😂😂 realDonaldTrump
Political exercise, posturing. OrangeManBad Didn't see any of this when Obama had a travel ban, seems like a political attack on Trump. Hey, let's just allow terrorists in so they can blame Trump for not having a travel ban. Yeah, that'll work. The American people get it. There should be an end to the Executive Order. It’s King power and America has no King.
It's true, it will die in Senate, but all things money and appropriations, starts in the House, all they have to do is cut off his ability to spend money the way he does, it brings to mind the old adage, how do you stop.a stampeding elephant? You cut his stamp-peter off. Now comes the handcuffs and ankle bracelets to hog tie a rogue moron. why did it take so long?
Does anyone disagree with this? I bet the House would also be ok with more flights from China to the USA, as we don’t want to discriminate.....even though there is that killer virus thing. 🙄 Thank heavens for the Senate! Means absolutely nothing, scotus will make sure the dems know it’s his right to do this.
Dems are against banning terrorist countries....got it. Supreme Court already decided Trump has the right for travel bans. Dems are wasting more time. antiAmerica This is ass....
Giannis Antetokounmpo's GF Gives Birth To First Child, 'Liam In The House!'Greek Freak Jr. is here!!! Giannis Antetokounmpo and his GF, Mariah, have welcomed a baby boy. This baby could average 5 and 7 in the league RIGHT NOW!!! Congrats!!! warriors get the baby now
It will never become law, separation of powers.... They should reconsider;don’t they know that my president’s got almost five years to go. SethAbramson Meaningless because anything the House passes dies in the Senate. This is meaningless unless the House can find 67 votes in the Senate. Judging by the outcome of the impeachment trial, that's very unlikely.
gtconway3d Let me guess... along party lines? I see Dems are ignoring the Constitution again 🧐 They can't vote against a recent SCOTUS ruling. Idiots It means nothing ! Wont pass the senate
In a House of Picky Eaters, These Jarred Sauces Are Always a Win'My four-year-old loves Maya Kaimal's tikka masala….and so do I.' I toned them down with some fresh peeled chopped tomatoes..... helencadey
LoriLorisuew We really must win back the Senate Not going to happen. The house cannot remove powers that the constitution gives the President. They need to make a constitutional amendment to do this. The courts will end this. By March thirtydamfirst he will have torn the dam justice department to shreds and will appear before Congress in a damn Hawaiian shirt with a smug look on his face!
Does the Congress do anything worthwhile? This is just virtue signaling as everyone knows it won't pass the Senate..... Are constituents actually happy with Orangemanbad for years? I don't think anyone's really worked these last three in DC THE WHITE REPUBLICAN SLAVES OF TRUMP ARE WORST THAN THE BLACK AFRICAN SLAVES OF AN YONDER ERA.
Ya'll gonna get run over It's the right thing to do SethAbramson This means nothing. Partisanship hacks. Senate and President will shut down this absurd objection to allowing only people in that we can get background checks on. Go F yourself. Pounds sand. neal_katyal Will Barr jump in & reinstate the ban? Well, maybe he isn’t able to jump, but you know what I mean.
So what. Will never be approved by the Senate or SCOTUS. When will Lobs pick fights they can win. Dem voters are sick of nonstop losing.

neal_katyal So when is the House going to start de-funding the Trump administration? Another dumb and divisive piece of legislation that's going absolutely nowhere. Why not come up with bills that will help the American people and move thru both houses, be signed by the president and become law, or shut down, go home and stop wasting time on bs?
Fk the Demonrats! everyhumanknows SUCK IT More partisan bs bills HouseJudiciary Good. They should have put restriction on trump's travels ban our money from funding his golf tours.
