John McCain and Lindsey Graham rebuke Trump in joint statement: Refugee ban is a ‘self-inflicted wound’

Republicans John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) released a joint statement this Sunday, saying President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration “will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism.”

“Our most important allies in the fight against [the Islamic State] are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred,” the senators said in their statement. “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.”

McCain and Graham are responding to Trump’s signing of an executive order on Friday which bans immigration from seven Muslim majority countries for 90 days, with a 120-day ban on refugees. A ban on Syrian refugees is indefinite.

“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,” the senators continued.

“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.”
