That this House condemns the recent comments by US Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, regarding his call for a ban on Muslims entering the United States; notes that the language he uses is extremely divisive and will incite discrimination and hatred; further notes that such comments will be seized upon by radical elements of all faiths to justify discrimination and violence; notes that such comments will seriously hamper and damage efforts to promote inclusion, integration and cooperation; notes that Donald Trump has a history of prejudice towards minority groups including disabled groups; notes that such language and policies have no place in the 21st century; notes that the United States was built on the back of immigrants of all faiths; and calls on the Government to refuse a visa allowing Donald Trump to visit the UK until Mr Trump withdraws his comments.
