The Advocates supports the NO BAN Act

The NO BAN Act passed the House of Representatives in April. Click here to tell your Senators we must pass the NO BAN Act now!

  • Sponsors: Rep. Judy Chu, Sen. Coons 
  • Bill Number: H.R. 2486

Overview:  The bill aims to prevent future actions by the executive that unlawfully use immigration laws in discriminatory ways.  It imposes limitations on the President's authority to suspend or restrict entry into the US, creates requirements for DHS and DOS, and provides a civil action for those harmed. It also prohibits religious discrimination in various immigration-related decisions. 

AHR supports: Closing gaps in our immigration laws that allow violations of international law and constitutional protections that prohibit actions rooted in racism and xenophobia based on pretextual national security grounds.
