Senators John McCain (R-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) released the following statement in response to President Trump's immigration executive orders:

"Our 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."

IMPORTANT: Call your Senators and Representatives this week and tell them you stand with immigrants and support policies that welcome refugees, protect asylum seekers, and allow local law enforcement to focus on community policing. #AILAStandsWithImmigrants

The Department of Justice's "Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices" got a new name this month... and it's easier to pronounce! It is now known as the Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER). https://www.justice.gov/crt/immigrant-and-employee-rights-section

Mayors from 17 U.S. cities, including Nashville, sent a letter to U.S. President-elect Trump this month emphasizing the importance of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (also known as DACA). Ensuring our nation's young people can "continue to live and work in their communities without fear of deportation is the foundation of sound, responsible immigration policy."
