The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote this Thursday, March 12, on the NO BAN Act. Please join us in urging your representative to vote yes on this bill.
The NO BAN Act repeals President Trump’s existing executive order blocking travel from majority Muslim countries and prevents another baseless, discriminatory travel ban from being implemented again. The bill prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion, including against those with no religion, and restores the separation of powers by limiting overly broad executive authority to issue future travel bans.
While this dangerous travel ban is on the top of your legislators’ minds, please ask your legislators to support the NO BAN Act.
The NO BAN Act is particularly important to FFRF, which has helped several atheists flee death sentences from Muslim-majority countries targeted by the ban. Just as the Constitution bars a religious test for public office, we believe it also bars a religious test for immigration or citizenship. We know that the ban precedent will ultimately be used against nonbelievers. Please use this opportunity to encourage your representative to support the NO BAN Act.
