Earlier, GOP Senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC issued a joint statement opposing the ban, saying Trump’s executive order signed Friday “will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism”.
President Trump has called the implementation a success, but following Friday’s order, there was a weekend of confusion and protests at airports across the nation. “And published reports are that neither the Department of Homeland Security or the Justice Department or others were consulted about this before this decision was made”.The Republican hawks joined the loud chorus of largely left-wing condemnation of the executive order, commonly known as the “Muslim ban” by critics.The remarks follow a joint press statement the pair released earlier Sunday (Monday NZT) on Trump’s executive order on immigration.Trump’s tweets came nearly at the same time as a White House statement, where Trump claimed that the ban “is not about religion”.Prior to their objection, GOP senators McCain and Graham issued a joint statement on Sunday to criticize President Trump’s executive order. “The two Senators should focus their energies on ISIS, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start World War III”.

The Patriots aren’t going to play zone all night either because Patricia is going to need to keep the Falcons offense guessing. Although the Falcons offense will look to rise up, the game plan by Bill Belichick will look to take away their top weapons.
McCain and Graham expressed fear the executive order, which has been halting arrivals of refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries at U.S. borders, could “become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism”.”The effect will probably in some areas give ISIS some more propaganda”, he said, adding that he is particularly concerned about the effect the ban will have on Iraqis – whose troops are fighting side-by-side with American forces in the battle to retake Mosul.”Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred”, McCain and Graham said.”President Trump is right to make sure we are doing everything possible to know exactly who is entering our country”, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., told The Washington Post.”It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared”. This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.
