INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:
“This administration will stop at nothing to make life painful for people of color seeking a better future. Not only has the President added Eritrea to its latest Muslim Ban, but he is also now threatening to deport Eritreans who have settled here. Rather than responding to human rights violations by the Eritrean government with compassion and decency, this administration has responded with cruel and reckless immigration policies that put many people in extreme danger,” Rep. Omar said. “Our country must live up to the values we hold dear as a nation and provide a refuge for those fleeing persecution and violence.” (Source: Rep. Omar, Press Release, 02/05/20)
