Precisely today marks three years of the approval of Trump's first immigration ban to some Muslim-majority countries and arrives after the president announced that there would be new restrictions without specifying who would be affected.

Some local media claimed that these countries would be Belarus, Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania.

The president of the Judicial Committee of the Lower House, Jerrold Nadler, explained today in a press conference that this body will take over the legislative project in two weeks.

In June 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States backed Trump's immigration veto with a strong division, despite allegations that it targeted especially Muslim-majority countries.

The court thus ruled in favor of the third travel ban promulgated by the president since arriving at the White House in January 2017 and affecting Libya, Iran, Somalia, Syria and Yemen and imposes restrictions on Venezuelans and North Koreans .
