Arizona Republican Senators Against Trump's Immigration Orders

Prior to their objection, GOP senators McCain and Graham issued a joint statement on Sunday to criticize President Trump's executive order. McCain and Graham have criticized Trump on a number of issues, including his plans to work alongside Russian Federation in fighting terrorism in Iraq and Syria.

He accused the neocon senators of failing to focus on border security and instead trying to involve the United States in foreign conflicts around the world.

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Tim Scott (R-SC) published a joint statement, in which they criticized the USA media by claiming that "some of what is being said and reported about the scope and implications of these measures is misleading", but added that they did have a number of concerns regarding Trump's immigration order.

The president's executive order signed Friday immediately suspends immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa - Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Iran and Libya - for 90 days. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies.

Trump also issued a statement Sunday afternoon defending the ban, which has sparked two days of protests nationwide. "To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting", the statement said.

US Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain said Donald Trump's executive order was not properly vetted. "We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home", their statement said.

Trump's executive order restricts access to the USA for people from seven terror-prone countries - Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, and Somalia.
