Washington, D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives voted on H.R. 1333, the “NO Ban Act”. This legislation strips the President’s authority to deny entry to aliens if their entry would be detrimental to national interests. This comes on the heels of two Yemeni terrorists, who were on the most wanted list, being apprehended at the Southern Border.

Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:

Today’s legislation does nothing to stop the crisis at our Southern Border. During the month of March, Customs and Border Protection encountered over 170,000 illegal aliens at the Southern Border, a 173% increase over last year, and 71% higher than last month. H.R. 1333 would only serve to limit the President’s ability to effectively keep our nation safe. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris created this crisis, it seems that House Democrats are only trying to exacerbate it.
