Nelson: Trump Immigration Move ‘Not the Answer’

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla, issued a brief statement Sunday criticizing President Donald Trump’s executive order that seeks to at least temporarily prevent immigration from seven Muslim countries.

“We have to do everything we can to protect ourselves from those who want to do us harm, but a hastily-issued policy that bans everyone from one of these seven countries from entering the U.S. –– including the Iraqi interpreters who served alongside our troops in Iraq –– is not the answer,” Nelson said.
