The U-S House is set to vote today (THU start time unknown) on a bill that would end a Muslim and African travel ban. Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar says…

“As the only member of Congress born in one of those banned countries, and has relatives in another, I know first-hand how destructive this policy is to millions of people around the world who want to come to America to seek a better life.”

The so-called “No Ban Act” would be the first Muslim civil rights bill passed by a chamber of Congress. GOP leaders say rescinding the ban would hinder the Trump administration’s ability to limit the number of travelers from countries with widespread outbreaks of coronavirus.
