  • July 22, 2020House Vote 154 Legal Counsel for U.S. Entry — Motion to Concur
    Jayapal, D-Wash., motion to concur in the Senate amendment to the bill with a further House amendment comprising Title II of the bill. Title II would require the Homeland Security Department to provide access to counsel for all individuals subject to a secondary inspection when seeking admission to the United States. Specifically, it would require the department to allow such individuals to consult with legal representation and a relative, petitioner or other connection within the United States, within the first hour of a secondary inspection. It would also prohibit the department from accepting paperwork from lawful permanent residents subject to secondary inspection that would give up such individuals' legal immigration status without providing them the opportunity to seek advice from counsel. Motion agreed to 231-184. Note: A "nay" is a vote in support of the president's position. 31 members voted remotely by proxy, pursuant to the provisions of H Res 965 during the public health emergency period related to COVID-19.

  • July 22, 2020House Vote 153 Prohibit Immigration Bans; Drug Patent Patent Practices — Motion to Concur
    Jayapal, D-Wash., motion to concur in the Senate amendment to the bill with a further House amendment comprising Title I of the bill. Title I would terminate a number of executive orders and proclamations by the president restricting entry into the United States from certain countries, including Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It would explicitly prohibit discrimination based on religion with regard to individuals seeking entry into the United States. It would limit the president's ability to restrict entry of a class of foreign nationals, including to require that such restrictions be temporary, narrowly tailored and subject to a State Department determination that they are in the interest of U.S. public safety or international stability. It would allow individuals present in the United States who are harmed by entry restrictions in violation of the bill's provisions to seek relief. Title I would also prohibit drug manufacturers from engaging in "product hopping" in which drug manufacturers make small changes to a drug so as to receive a new period of patent protection and impede the entry of generic or biosimilar products. It would authorize the Federal Trade Commission to impose penalties or bring suit against manufacturers in violation of the prohibition. It would also restrict the practice of "patent thickening" in which manufacturers file additional unused patents that they assert are being infringed by generic and biosimilar products, by limiting the number of such patents a manufacturer may file. Motion agreed to 233-183. Note: A "nay" is a vote in support of the president's position. 31 members voted remotely by proxy, pursuant to the provisions of H Res 965 during the public health emergency period related to COVID-19.
