Sen. Schumer: Immigration ban 'mean-spirited and un-American'

Then on Sunday, Schumer continued to denounce Trump's order.

However, the fact remains that Congress is controlled by Republicans, so bills dismantling the refugee ban aren't going to become law if the GOP doesn't back them.

"I, as your senator from NY, will claw, scrap and fight with every fiber of my being until these orders are overturned". "It'll be up to getting more Republicans", he said. "I'm going to ask him who was his acting coach, because I know him very well".

But on Sunday, several members of Trump's party said the process, while initiated with the right intention, had been too hastily enacted and could backfire against U.S. interests.

Chaos erupted over the weekend at major airports across America after President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday night that barred citizens from seven different Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

He also defended the lack of grace period in the order, which some said could have better prepared immigration and other officials and prevented unnecessary confusion and detentions. The biggest problem we've had from terrorism are not from these countries. "It's pretty clear now that Donald Trump and Steve Bannon are running this administration and the nominees that have been confirmed thus far have been marginalized", Murphy added.

Robin Thicke Slapped With Restraining Order After Paula Patton Alleges Abuse
Paula Patton's custody battle with Robin Thicke, 39, has taken a shocking and ugly turn on January 26. It also comes just weeks after the death of Thicke's father, " Growing Pains " actor Alan Thicke.

"These orders go against what America has always been about".

It's up to Republicans if the push will be successful, but Schumer was cautiously optimistic. It declares the executive order illegal, arguing that it is in violation of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which banned discrimination against immigrants on the basis of national origin.

The Connecticut senator suggested that the USA should follow a European model of immigration policy rather than a ban on select nations, and make sure that those who manage to enter the US are unable to get unsafe weapons. The order led to chaos at airports over the weekend and prompted a federal judge to block part of the order.

If you want to join the resistance efforts, a good place to start is calling your representatives and encouraging them to fight the ban.

'Imagine if they had put all this enthusiasm, these tearful senators these senators with bull horns - imagine if they had protested outside VA hospitals when our veterans were dying for care?' Conway asked.
