some supporting it. john mccain tweeted he fears the ban may do more to help terrorist recruitment than increase security. but when you factor out all the misinformation it's clear that a temporary pause on refugee settlement is a rational settlement. the current governor also saying he's a democrat, he said, i urge potus to rescind this executive order and return the united states to its place as a beacon of hope for all. >> and a lot of reaction to president trump's imposed travel ban after he used his sag award acceptance speech to hit on this issue. >> we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no homes. we will get past the lies. we will hunt monsters and when we're at a loss
