Introduced in Senate (02/07/2017)

Declares that Executive Order 13769, entitled "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States," undermines the national interest of the United States. Among the order's major provisions are restrictions on the entry of immigrants and nonimmigrants from seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) and additional limitations on refugee admissions to the United States.

Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) the United States should remain a global leader in welcoming and providing refuge to refugees and asylum seekers; and (2) no person should be banned from entering the United States because of their nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender.
