   To block the implementation of certain presidential actions that 
 restrict individuals from certain countries from entering the United 
                                States.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that Executive Order 13780 and the presidential 
proclamation issued on September 24, 2017--
            (1) violate the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 
        1101 et seq.), which states that no person can be discriminated 
        against in the issuance of an immigrant visa because of the 
        person's race, sex, nationality, place of birth, or place of 
        residence; and
            (2) violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment 
        to the United States Constitution and the equal protection 
        component of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to 
        the United States Constitution.

SEC. 2. PROHIBITION AGAINST USE OF FUNDS.

    No funds, resources, or fees made available to the Secretary of 
Homeland Security, or to any other official of a Federal agency, by 
this Act or any other Act for any fiscal year, may be used to implement 
or enforce Executive Order 13780, signed on March 6, 2017, or the 
presidential proclamation issued on September 24, 2017.
