SenatorLisaMurkowskiRAKNeutralAll weekend long my staff and I have been monitoring implementation of President Trump's recent EO related to immigration - consulting wiht both the Dept. of Homeland Security and stakeholders in Alaska. Like others, we are trying to understand the remifications of this action, including the suspension of the refugee resettlement program and its impact on Alaskans and those coming to our community. We have spoken with Catholic Social Services of Alaska about the effect of the EO in our state. President Trump has made it clear that the security of Americans is his top priority. I agree. I also believe U.S. immigration policy must strike a balance between national security and our values as Americans and that how we implement policy matters. I will be pressing the Administration to address the needs of those impacted by the implementation of this order while we work on the broader policy.https://twitter.com/lisamurkowski/status/8261329136831242252022709 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-6665907-271-3735https://www.murkowski.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact

SenatorRichardShelbyRALSupportThe safety and security of the American people is paramount, which is why I am a strong advocate of a rigorous review of our nation's vetting process for those who are seeking to enter our country," the senator said. "I look forward to working with the administration and my colleagues in Congress to create effective policies that secure our borders and keep the American people safe."http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2017/01/richard_shelby_supports_trumps.html2022304 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-5744256-772-0460https://www.shelby.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/emailsenatorshelby

@SenShelby1000 Glenn Hearn Boulevard, #20127, Huntsville, AL 35824Dec. 8, 2015 Richard Shelby, Alabama's Republican senior senator, is among the growing list of GOP figures who are at odds with Donald Trump's call for a "complete and total shutdown" of Muslim immigration to the United States.

SenatorJohnBoozmanRARSupport{rptecting our national security must be a top priority. Our intelligence community and citizens in communities across Arkansas and in the U.S. lack confidence in the programs we use to vet refugees fleeing from persecution and war-torn countries like Syria. We need reasonable measures that allow us to evaluate safety checks for people coming into our country. I have great confidence in Secretary Kelly and look forward to working with him to secure our borders. This is best achieved by working with Congress and the appropriate agencies to alleviate unintended consequences.https://twitter.com/JohnBoozman/status/8261692336210575382022320 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-4843501-372-7153https://www.boozman.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact

SenatorTomCottonRARSupportIt's simply wrong to call the president’s executive order concerning immigration and refugees ‘a religious test’ of any kind. I doubt many Arkansans or Americans more broadly object to taking a harder look at foreigners coming into our country from war-torn nations with known terror networks; I think they’re wondering why we don’t do that already.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/01/29/heres-where-republicans-stand-on-president-trumps-controversial-travel-ban/2020255 Dirksen Senate Office Building202-224-2353479-751-0879http://www.cotton.senate.gov/?p=contact

SenatorJeffFlakeRAZOpposedPresident Trump and his administration are right to be concerned about national security, but it’s unacceptable when even legal permanent residents are being detained or turned away at airports and ports of entry. Enhancing long term national security requires that we have a clear-eyed view of radical Islamic terrorism without ascribing radical Islamic terrorist views to all Muslims.https://medium.com/@JeffFlake/president-trump-and-his-administration-are-right-to-be-concerned-about-national-security-but-its-ebc9d0f71c45#.c2y7b0e492018368 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-4521602-840-1891https://www.flake.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact-jeff

SenatorJohnMcCainRAZOpposedOur government has a responsibility to defend our borders, but we must do so in a way that makes us safer and upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation. It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. Such a hasty process risks harmful results. We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home. We should not stop those who have served as interpreters for our military and diplomats from seeking refuge in the country they risked their lives to help. And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children. Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism. At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies. Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.http://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2017/1/statement-by-senators-mccain-graham-on-executive-order-on-immigration2022241 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-2235602-952-2410https://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact-form

We can’t turn our backs on them.https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/825396519423586304112 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-3553916-448-2787https://www.harris.senate.gov/content/contact-senator

But today the world is seeing an America that is returning to the politics of exclusion based on religion or nationalist. I'm angered and saddened by President Trump's decision to sign an executive order that seems intenteded to make a point, not to make us safe. The executive orders by this preseident that exceed his authority can and should be challenges, as were the executive orders of previous presidents of both parties.https://t.co/LMprxzfM4A127A Russell Senate Office Building202-224-5042302-573-6345https://www.coons.senate.gov/contact

SenatorMarcoRubioRFLSkepticalWe generally support additional vetting for many of those entering our country from nations where the United States has identified there are serious concerns regarding terrorist activities and planning. But given the broad scope and nature of these policy changes, we have some unanswered questions and concerns. We are seeking clarity on the changes to the Visa Waiver program, which is critical to the economies of our respective states.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/01/29/heres-where-republicans-stand-on-president-trumps-controversial-travel-ban/?utm_term=.f53e6b3e35fb2022284 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-3041407-254-2573http://www.rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact

SenatorJohnnyIsaksonRGASkepticalTwo separate pieces from interviews -1) "President Trump and his administration have been taking steps to fulfill his campaign promises, and he’s right that we need to strengthen our national security and improve the vetting process for people coming into our country. Unfortunately, some important aspects of the process to ensure that this temporary travel ban could be implemented smoothly were overlooked. I hope that President Trump will consult with the national security team he has assembled with the advice and consent of the Senate, so that security measures are properly implemented and do not infringe on the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. I also believe that America should continue to be welcoming to refugees who are fleeing war and persecution and who share America’s ideals and values" 2) "I do think in the case of the immigration issue that the mandate over the weekend was not very well vetted and the people designed to carry out the mandate didn’t know what the mandate was, and when asked some of the questions it didn’t sound like the White House knew what it was exactly. They’ve amended it a couple times already. You need to be very careful when you’re issuing executive orders or passing laws that you vet them all the way through the system so you can carry them out once they’re in place.http://politics.blog.ajc.com/2017/01/30/georgia-republicans-slowly-line-up-behind-donald-trumps-refugee-ban/ and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/01/29/heres-where-republicans-stand-on-president-trumps-controversial-travel-ban/?utm_term=.15d42fb8fe4e2022131 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-3643770-661-0999https://www.isakson.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-me

@SenatorIsakson@JohnnyIsaksonOne Overton Park, 3625 Cumberland Blvd., Suite 970, Atlanta, GA 30339 Theguiardian.com, June 14, 2016 Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who faces re-election this year, insisted that he hadn’t heard Trump’s speech on Monday. As Isakson told the Guardian: “I hate to comment on something I didn’t hear.” But the Republican did make clear his opposition to Trump’s Muslim ban, saying: “Banning immigrants coming into the country isn’t going to solve terrorism; banning guns is not going stop murder.”

SenatorDavidPerdueRGASupportWe are at war with ISIS and our previous president refused to put a plan in place to deal with this threat. We know terrorists identified our country's refugee system as a weakness and have purposed to exploit this program to their advantage. The first responsibility of any American President is to protect American citizens. This temporary pause will allow DHS to ensure the vetting process is improved. America will always be a compassionate country, and President Trump is taking action to protect all of our citizens.https://twitter.com/sendavidperdue/status/8262117092956815382020416 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-3521(404) 865-0087https://www.perdue.senate.gov/connect/email

SenatorJoniErnstRIASkepticalWith respect to the President’s Executive Order, there must be more clarity surrounding the order’s implementation.

That said, the way this order is implemented in the coming days and weeks may change as we've already seen unintended consequences for holders of legal green cards and others who were initially detained.

Since the order was issued just this past Friday, and there is much speculation about specifics of the President’s action, and many moving parts, Senator Risch is gathering and reviewing information from a number of sources and will learn more when he returns to Washington, D.C. for briefings this week. A comment at this time would be premature. “Senator Risch has consistently said that, in many cases, the US vetting process for many areas of the world has been inadequate and does not ensure the safety of all Americans.”http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article129514754.html2020483 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-2752208-342-7985http://www.risch.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?p=Email

The chaotic execution of this [Executive Order] … raises serious concerns in regard to whether taxpayer dollars were efficiently and effectively spent, rather than wasted on unwarranted and unjust detentions of lawful permanent residents (LPRs) and others who posed no security threat, and who had already been authorized by the United States Government to enter our country,” Duckworth and Durbin wrote. “We are deeply concerned by [Customs and Border Protection’s] failure to respond to time-sensitive Congressional oversight inquiries and allegations that the agency refused to permit attorneys to meet with detained LPRs at O’Hare and other airports across the countryhttps://www.duckworth.senate.gov/content/duckworth-durbin-request-immediate-investigation-department-homeland-security%E2%80%99s524 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-2854(312)886-3506https://www.duckworth.senate.gov/content/contact-senator

SenatorJerryMoranRKSOpposedKeeping Americans safe should be our federal government's top priority. Strengthening our immigration system is critical to that end, and it’s common sense to have appropriate vetting procedures in place for individuals wishing to travel to our country. While I support thorough vetting, I do not support restricting the rights of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. Furthermore, far-reaching national security policy should always be devised in consultation with Congress and relevant government agencies.http://www.moran.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/news-releases?ID=293BF2D8-A60C-4B8B-9B21-6D4CEE08CEAF2022361A Russell Senate Office Building202-224-6521785-628-6401https://www.moran.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/e-mail-jerry

One attack on our shores like those in Paris and Brussels is one too many. We have also seen too many crimes committed by illegal immigrants that should never have been in our country in the first place. However, we need to strike a balance that protects the rights of Americans and those permitted to enter the country legally.

SenatorRandPaulRKYSupportCritics of President Trump’s order halting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries need to recognize the flaws in the United States’s immigrationsystem before they challenge the president'saction, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday. “People ought to step back and see if we can agree that there’s a problem in order to decide whether we like the solution,” Paul said during an appearance on MSNBC. “And the problem is pretty clear that about 40 percent of people who come visit our country on a visa overstay their visa, and we have no idea where they are.”http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/317061-rand-paul-dont-criticize-immigration-ban-until-you-recognize-the2022124 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-4343859-426-0165https://www.paul.senate.gov/connect/email-rand

SenatorBillCassidyRLASoft opposedI know many physicians from these countries who provide vital healthcare services to fellow Americans. Some are naturalized citizens and some permanent residents with green cards. Often times they work in rural areas or inner cities where there ar eno other doctors. Their ability to return freely to the U.S. after traveling is important to their patients, neighbors, and families. Although I speak of doctors, there are others just as important. I am pleased to see that this order is being refined to address this and I look forward to it being further refined. Our nation's security and our Constitution can be respected simultaneously.https://twitter.com/BillCassidy/status/8258870116974632962020703 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-5824225-929-7711https://www.cassidy.senate.gov/contact

SenatorAmyKlobucharDMNOpposedIt is also incredulous that at the same time the President is asking the Pentagon for new options to defeat ISIL, he is banning Iraqi refugees from entering the country. The government of Iraq is our ally in the fight against ISIL. Its troops fight alongside ours. Its interpreters risk their own lives and the lives of their families to protect U.S. personnel. It undermines our national security and endangers our soldiers to have our Iraqi partners and other Muslim countries distrust our commitment and motives. President Trump said he was ‘totally against’ the U.S. invasion in 2003, which led to Iraq’s destabilization and the rise of ISIL. I guess he is not ‘totally against’ leaving its people to suffer the consequences.https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10153980676941191&substory_index=0&id=7606381190302 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-3244612-727-5220www.klobuchar.senate.gov/public/contact-amy

SenatorThomTillisRNCOpposed, but only on technicalitiesAs we offer safety to refugees, we must also be mindful of the sad reality that radical Islamic terrorists are actively attempting to infiltrate refugee programs to enter Western nations. The FBI director has warned Congress that the United States lacks the capability to properly vet all Syrian refugees. This is a significant vulnerability, and strengthening the screening of refugees is a matter of national security.While the executive order does take immediate action aimed at tightening the refugee screening process, there is a lot of confusion surrounding the order, particularly given the instances of green card holders inexplicably being denied entry back into the United States. Implementation of the order should be refined to provide more clarity and mitigate unintended consequences that do not make our country any safer.https://twitter.com/SenThomTillis/status/8257718574125752332020521 Dirksen Senate Office Building202-224-6342(704) 509-9087https://www.tillis.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-me@ThomTillis9300 Harris Corners Pkwy, Suite 170, Charlotte, NC 28269

SenatorBenjaminSasseRNEOpposedThe President is right to focus attention on the obvious fact that borders matter. At the same time, while not technically a Muslim ban, this order is too broad. There are two ways to lose our generational battle against jihadism by losing touch with reality. The first is to keep pretending that jihadi terrorism has no connection to Islam or to certain countries. That’s been a disaster. And here's the second way to fail: If we send a signal to the Middle East that the U.S. sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion. Both approaches are wrong, and both will make us less safe. Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdomhttp://www.sasse.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=813E24D8-1B88-4070-BF16-795305303A2B2022404 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-4224402-476-1400www.sasse.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-ben

This is not a Muslim ban, as the measure suspends all refugee admittance for 120 days and suspends the issuance of visas to nationals of seven countries for 90 days. Time and again terrorists have stated their intent to infiltrate refugee populations in order ot spread their ideology and terror throughout the West, as has already happened in Europe. Frthermore, the pause on visa applicants for countries that Condress and the Departments of State an dHomeland Security have determined as areas of concern to national security is reasonable given the unrest and the state of instability in each of those countries. https://twitter.com/jiminhofe/status/8261101266712002612020205 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-4721918-748-5111www.inhofe.senate.gov/contact

SenatorSheldonWhitehouseDRIOpposedPresident Trump's broad brush executive order on refugees doesn't discern women and children, local supporters and employees who helped American troops and have to flee for safety, or other good reasons to keep a safe refugee process operating. None of the 9/11 terrorists came from these countries, and the last time "America First" folks closed our borders it was to European Jews fleeing the Third Reich. This is dangerous territory for rash decisions. The blunt signal this makes to the Arab world will help Russia and hurt us, and we all lose when the United States loses its standing as a place for children and families fleeing war and persecution to find peace and a chance to build a new life.‎‎https://twitter.com/SenWhitehouse/status/825465893920636930530 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-2921401-453-5294www.whitehouse.senate.gov/contact/email-sheldon@SenWhitehouse@SheldonforRI170 Westminister St., Ste. 200, Providence, RI 02904

SenatorLindseyGrahamRSCOpposedOur government has a responsibility to defend our borders, but we must do so in a way that makes us safer and upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation. It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. Such a hasty process risks harmful results. We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home. We should not stop those who have served as interpreters for our military and diplomats from seeking refuge in the country they risked their lives to help. And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children. Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism. At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies. Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.http://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=587F2A2D-8A47-48F7-9045-CF30F0A778892020290 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-5972(864) 250-1417https://www.lgraham.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/e-mail-senator-graham

SenatorLamarAlexanderRTNOpposedThis vetting proposal itself needed more vetting. More scrutiny of those traveling from war-torn countries to the United States is wise. But this broad and confusing order seems to ban legal, permanent residents with ‘green cards,’ and might turn away Iraqis, for example, who were translators and helped save lives of American troops and who could be killed if they stay in Iraq. And while not explicitly a religious test, it comes close to one which is inconsistent with our American character.http://www.alexander.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/pressreleases?ID=C007E222-C999-4341-AB41-7E5A2A752F502020455 Dirksen Senate Office Building202-224-4944(423) 752-5337https://www.alexander.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email

SenatorTedCruzRTXSupportiveExcerpt - We live in a dangerous world, and for eight long years the Obama administration remained willfully blind to the threat of radical Islamic terrorism, admitting tens of thousands of refugees whom the FBI expressly told Congress they could not be certain were not terrorists. That Obama policy made no sense, and it made America less safe. If we are serious about combating the threat of radical Islam, we must reform and strengthen our refugee programs to ensure proper vetting of those entering our country—especially when they are coming from nations that are hotbeds of terror. This is crucial to our national security and to protecting American lives, and it is a priority for which I have long advocated. https://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=29802018185 Dirksen Senate Office Building202-224-5922(512) 916-5834http://www.cruz.senate.gov/?p=email_senator

SenatorOrrinHatchRUTNeutralThe present geopolitical situation in the war-torn Middle East presents a number of difficult questions regarding the intersection of our efforts to protect Americans from the threat of terrorism and our legal and moral obligations to help the innocent victims of these terrible conflicts. In particular, as a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am acutely aware that many of my own ancestors in not-too-distant past were themselves refugees, religious minorities violently driven from their homes and who undertook a long and dangerous journey to build a new life in a distant land." "President Trump has described the motivation of his recent order as a means '[t]o temporarily reduce investigative burdens on relevant agencies.' In this spirit, I strongly urge the new administration to move quickly to tailor its policy on visa issuance as narrowly as possible, delivering on our security needs while reducing unnecessary burdens on the vast majority of visa-seekers that present a promise—not a threat—to our nation. Doing so as expeditiously as possible will achieve our shared goals of keeping the country we love both safe and free, a beacon of justice to the world.https://twitter.com/SenOrrinHatch/status/825534216645509121104 Hart Senate Office Building202-224-5251(801) 524-4380http://www.hatch.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact?p=Email-Orrin

SenatorTimKaineDVAOpposedI am appalled by the cruelty the Trump Administration has demonstrated over the past 24 hours. By indefinitely suspending the Syrian refugee program and imposing a religious test at our borders, he has defied everything our nation stands for. He's also weakened our national security by empowering ISIL's narrative that the West is at war with Islam and encouraging the listed countries to further cooperate with adversaries like Russia and Iran. For decades, America has acted as the Good Samaritan and extended a welcoming hand to those who yearn to be free. We should continue to thoroughly vet all refugees who enter the United States, but we cannot abandon our core principles. If we turn our backs on widows and orphans fleeing the very evil we despise, we do not defeat our enemies; we surrender to them.https://twitter.com/timkaine/status/825468970404872196388 Russell Senate Office Building202-224-4024434-792-0976https://www.kaine.senate.gov/contact

SenatorBernieSandersIVTOpposedDemagogues survive politically by fostering hatred, especially against minorities. They try to divide people up by their religion, country of origin or the color of their skin. By temporarily barring all immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries and giving preference to Christian refugees, Trump is doubling down on the hateful rhetoric he used during his campaign. Further, he is breaking with the historic tradition of the U.S. and turning his back on those men, women and children fleeing violence, oppression, and starvation. Trump’s latest executive action will not make us safer. In fact, his anti-Muslim actions play right into the hands of those anti-American fanatics who wish to do us harm. Love and compassion trumps hatred and intolerance.https://twitter.com/SenSanders/status/825381179775971328332 Dirsken Office Building202-224-5141802-862-0697www.sanders.senate.gov/contact/
