Dems to pass bill to keep Trump from ordering travel bans during virus crisis

22

The House and Senate Democrats are so concerned about the American public that they decided to pass or try to pass a bill stripping the President of his legal authority to impose travel bans to protect American citizens.

CDC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci made it clear that the China travel ban greatly slowed the spread of coronavirus in this country. This evening the President stopped travel from Europe except the UK since Europe did not institute China travel bans and are in much worse shape than we are. Europeans coming into the United States and spreading the illness.

While the spreading of Wuhan Virus continues, Speaker Pelosi is playing politics and trying to keep the President from doing his job.

The president implemented travel bans on China and Iran, two heavily affected nations, and it is well within his responsibilities in this health emergency. Speaker Pelosi is out to stop him for political expediency, without regard for the safety and welfare of her countrymen.

THE NO BAN ACT

The “No Ban Act,” originally introduced by Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) and co-sponsored by 219 House Democrats, would have prevented the President from immediately implementing a travel ban on China once the outbreak of the coronavirus spread past its origins of Wuhan.

The No Ban Act would have allowed travelers from Wuhan to continue to arrive in the U.S. while the president received guidance from Congress, a long, slow process, perhaps an impossible one.

“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,” a summary of the legislation reads.

The legislation would mandate Trump “only issue a restriction when required to address a compelling government interest,” though that interest is not defined. Before imposing a travel ban, Trump would have to “consult with Congress,” the legislation dictates.

Pelosi wants to control everything by assuming the powers of the presidency.

Additionally, Democrat Senators Christopher Murphy (D-CT), Christopher Coons (D-DE), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) have introduced legislation to stop Trump’s recent expansion of a travel ban on some legal immigration from Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Sudan, along with Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen.

The legislation states:

No funds, resources, or fees made available to the Secretary of Homeland Security, or to any other official of a Federal agency, by any Act of Congress for any fiscal year may be used to implement or enforce Presidential Proclamation 9983 … which restricts the entry into the United States of nationals of certain countries.

That case was already fought in the courts and President Trump won it.

On top of this, Democrats’ fight to keep U.S. borders open to the world during the spread of the coronavirus. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) this week explicitly said he would not close America’s borders to protect Americans from the coronavirus. Former Vice President Joseph Biden has said the same thing, if he even knows what he is saying. There are Chinese people coming across our borders illegally, and at least three were kept in confinement due to some type of illness.

Our borders are still open and people with all manner of illnesses are allowed in regardless. Thank a Democrat.

  1. Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) who introduced this bill was elected to Congress in 2012 and is the first Chinese American woman elected to the U.S. Congress. Makes one wonder to which country her loyalties lie. And of course that includes all who voted for this anti American people bill.

    • I am not so concerned with which country her loyalties lie, I am concerned with which country her ire lies. Is she pro China or Anti America? It would seem to be anti America.

  2. “… Speaker Pelosi is playing politics…”

    The Dems will be responsible for many more deaths of Americans that could have been avoided.

    “… Democrats’ fight to keep U.S. borders open to the world…”

    We need the military at our borders.

  3. Hilarious! The same buffoons who voted for this absurdity will be the same clowns jumping up and down screaming that Trump didn’t do enough to fight the virus! Democrat lunacy…you can’t make it up…

    • It’s their plan, prevent Trump from governing, then blame him for not governing. It works with the complicit main stream media who blame Trump both coming and going.

  4. Since the election of President Trump, the leftists(dims/commies) in our government have made sure that everyone knows where their loyalties lie. To themselves and their ideology of hate and suppression of freedom and liberty.
    Time to make the dim party go away. Completely.
    KAG2020.

  5. funny how it didn’t keep the president from banning travel to Europe for thirty days…they got wind of what he was going to do and this is just another dog and pony show, doing nothing and expecting credit.

  6. How much evidence do liberals need to see that the democrats don’t care about them? This party is completely anti-American!
    The President of the United States is trying to protect everyone in our country, and the democrats are trying to hamper him.
    Wake the hell up!!!

  7. Democrats want more Americans to die so that they can politicize the deaths and blame it on the president. They really are that partisan.

  8. The message from the gangsters that comprise the DNC is clear: If you DARE become the President of the United States and you refuse to do our bidding, we WILL dog you until you are imprisoned or dead, with the same applying to those of whom you care most about. It makes no difference if what we rule over becomes a pile of ashes, so long as it is WE ruling over it. It’s all about power, and little else.

  9. REALLY? Half-truths are the worst kind of lies. This bill was introduced in APRIL of 2019. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Covid-19 virus outbreak or President Trump’s response to it. It was introduced to block the so-called by Dem/MSM Muslim ban (the temporary travel restrictions Pres put into place to block untraceable immigrants from entering the country), NOT to interfere with President Trump’s efforts on the virus. The House withdrew the bill.

    Please restrict yourself to telling the truth. We get enough FAKE NEWS from the MSM and Democrats.
    Really disappointing that you would stoop to their level. What kind of conservative are you?

  10. D卐M☭CRATS(politicians) are the enemy of the people. The DNC (Democrat Network of Crime) is an active and vast crime syndicate, who has been stealing taxpayers money for decades. They want to harm this president/country any way they can. Only a divided, desperate and hopeless people would ever fall for the pandering lies socialism pushes. They want to strip the presidency down to a figurehead when it’s a Republican and a czar when it’s a D卐M☭CRAT. President Trump better listen to Judicial Watch and clean out the deep state bureaucracies, fast, or it will be his/our downfall.

  11. Limiting the legal authority of the president with a simplementation majority vote. Not only partisan. Not only deranged. Not only unethical.
    But, it is also treason.
    The only, ONLY, legal way to limit constitutional powers is via amendment process. Other wise it is known as a coup.
