Skip to comments.Tensions flare at House session as Dems take aim at Trump travel ban
Posted on 02/12/2020 12:44:40 PM PST by jazusamo
Democrats took the first step to repeal President Trumps expanding travel bans Wednesday at a House Judiciary Committee session that devolved into a debate on whether the restrictions amount to a Muslim ban and whether its OK to call Trump occasionally honest.
In a sometimes-testy committee markup, Democrats passed the No Ban Act to repeal Trumps bans that apply to foreign nationals from seven countries with an additional six countries on deck later this month.
While the measure is unlikely to advance in the GOP-controlled Senate, Democrats panned the restrictions as a cruel Muslim ban that has torn thousands of families apart needlessly, while Republicans blasted the repeal as Democrats latest attempt to undercut Trump.
This has nothing to do with religion. This has to do with securing our country, said Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., taking on Democrats for calling it a Muslim ban. ...If it really was, as you call it, a Muslim ban, why wouldnt Indonesia be on this ban? I mean they have a lot of Muslims. This is just inaccurate. You are just spreading this falsity.
But Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said you have to look no further than Trumps intentions when, during his 2016 campaign, he called for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States."
How do we know [it's a Muslim ban]? We know because the president, who is occasionally honest, told us so! Nadler said.

They are all pathetic....
Not a Damn thing for the American Citizen.
Gerry Nadler. Sheesh.
If his pants get any higher he’ll have to unzip to brush his teeth.
More DOA time wasting by Democrats.
Memo to everyone: We’d better be willing crawl across acres of broken glass to vote for Republican candidates for the US Senate, and drag our friends and family along.
If the dems take control of the Senate and keep the House they will actually pass s#it like this into law and only Trump’s veto will keep us from becoming Venezuela. And of course they will impeach him and with control of the Senate come much closer to removing him from office.
The Senate is EVERYTHING.
Lard@ss is trying to redeem his pitiful reputation as an incompetent FAILED impeachment manager.
Debbie Lesko is on of my congresspersons, she is awesome.
I would not use the word ‘pathetic’, it entails pity and feelings of sadness as related to the object person.
I feel absolutely no pity or sadness towards these traitors, only anger and derision......................
Anything and everything for foreigners in another country.
Also anything and everything for foreigners in our country and anyway they can get more here.
Difficult to imagine our entire World run by people who think as these people do, yet that is their goal.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS RIGHT.
THERE ARE 68 PASSAGES IN THE KORAN ENCOURAGING THE MUSLIM TO LIE, CHEAT, STEAL AND KILL THE INFIDEL.
How much does the Constitution allow the Legislators to meddle in the POTUS decisions?? Are their any Supreme Court decisions protecting the President from over zealous Congress critters??
Lets Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks Donate Today!
How do we know [it’s a Muslim ban]? We know because the president, who is occasionally honest, told us so! Nadler said.
I really wish it WAS a muslim ban.
Islam is incompatible with western civilization.
For a muslim to freely practice his religion, others must die.
Except of course, those of the (spit) 'brave and heroic freedom fighters' ?
Not a Damn thing for the American Citizen.
It's simple. Lot more Democrat votes among foreigners.
Assuming they can get it through both houses of Congress, Nancy’s impeachment pen quickly ran dry, but Trump’s VETO pen has plenty of ink.
national security issue. Eat feces and die.
If Trump, himself, announced that he had discovered a cure for cancer today, the evil DemonRats would try to blame him for all the people that died from cancer yesterday. These people are just plain NUTS!
These supposed leaders should be setting an example for the citizens of the nation but instead they reflect the actions of the scum of the earth.
