Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the Department of Justice should appoint an independent counsel to investigate whether the President or his staff directed, or knew about and failed to prevent, U.S. Customs and Border Protection activities that violated, or consciously circumvented and nullified the efficacy of, judicial orders designed to stay Executive Order 13769. 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.
