Democrats in the House and Senate introduced a bill on Wednesday to repeal President Trump's controversial travel ban on seven countries, five of which are predominantly Muslim.

Details: Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Rep. Judy Chu (D-Cali.) introduced the bill with the support of Muslim Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), as well as every Democratic presidential candidate in Congress, per the Washington Post. The NO BAN Act would repeal all three versions of Trump's travel ban, completely prohibit discrimination on the basis of religion for immigrants and limit any broad executive authority to issue new travel bans.
