US House approves bill to reverse Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’

The United States House of Representatives voted 233-183 on Wednesday to pass legislation reversing President Donald Trump administration’s order banning entry to immigrants from mainly Muslim-majority countries.

The bill, called the NO BAN Act, limits the ability of Presidents in the future to bar entry based on religion.

“There are today millions of Americans who, because of the Muslim ban, are separated from families and loved ones: parents who can’t be reunited, families who can’t be reunited, grandparents who are missing out on life events,” said Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates, a group supporting the bill.
