HR. 1503/S. 608 - Overturning Muslim Ban 2.0

(Last updated August 28, 2017)


Summary

HR. 1503 (the SOLVE Act 2.0) and S. 608 are House and Senate bills, respectively, which would overturn Executive Order 13780. That Order, signed by the President on March 6, 2017, restricts travel to the United States by nationals of 6 majority Muslim countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen), and halts all refugee resettlement for a period of 120 days. Either of these bills, if passed, would nullify that Order.
