So far, at least 19 Republicans have announced opposition to or questioned Trump's executive order banning travelers and refugees from 7 countries from entering the U.S.

  1. Sen. John McCain: "There's so much confusion out there," McCain said on "Face the Nation." "Obviously this process and these conclusions were not vetted." He warned the order could be used as propganda by ISIS for recruiting.
  2. Rep. Carlos Curbelo: "I expect that these executive orders are in fact temporary and that once the Administration strengthens the vetting process, we can continue our tradition of welcoming those who are persecuted in an orderly manner and without any kind of religious test."
  3. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: "I object to the suspension of visas from the seven named countries because we could have accomplished our objective of keeping our homeland safe by immediate implementation of more thorough screening procedures."
  4. Rep. Charlie Dent: "This is ridiculous. I guess I understand what his intention is, but unfortunately the order appears to have been rushed through without full consideration. You know, there are many, many nuances of immigration policy that can be life or death for many innocent, vulnerable people around the world."
  5. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick: "While we certainly need to enhance our current vetting process and significantly reform our immigration policies to make sure terrorists are not exploiting our nation's proud tradition of freedom and acceptance, the President's policy entirely misses the mark."
  6. Rep. Justin Amash: "It's not lawful to ban immigrants on basis of nationality. If the president wants to change immigration law, he must work with Congress."
  7. Rep. Barbara Comstock: "The President's Executive Order issued yesterday went beyond the increased vetting actions that Congress has supported..."
  8. Sen. Susan Collins: "The worldwide refugee ban set forth in the executive order is overly broad and implementing it will be immediately problematic.
  9. Sen. Jeff Flake: "It's unacceptable when even legal permanent residents are being detained or turned away at airports and ports of entry."
  10. Sen. Ben Sasse: "If we send a signal to the Middle East that the U.S. sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion. Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdom."
  11. Sen. Rob Portman: "This was an extreme vetting program that wasn't properly vetted."
  12. Sen. Cory Gardner: "I urge the Administration to take the appropriate steps to fix this overly broad executive order."
  13. Sen. Bob Corker: "[T]his executive order has been poorly implemented, especially with respect to green card holders."
  14. Sen. Lindsey Graham: "Such a hasty process risks harmful results.... 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." (in a statement with John McCain)
  15. Rep. Elise Stefanik: "I oppose President Trump's rushed and overly broad Executive Order."
  16. Sen. Lamar Alexander: "This vetting proposal itself needed more vetting."
  17. Rep. Will Hurd: "This visa ban is the ultimate display of mistrust and will erode our allies' willingness to fight with us."
  18. Rep. Mike Coffman: "While I've supported heightened vetting procedures for those wanting to travel to our country, I have never, nor will I ever support a blanket travel ban for people solely based on ethnic or religious grounds."
  19. Gov. John Kasich: "In probably many Arab capitals today, people are like, 'What is America doing?' He told WashPo.

China said Monday that it will ban entry to Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over their criticisms of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, the AP reports.

The big picture: The move seems to be retaliatory after the U.S. announced sanctions on four Chinese officials for human rights abuses against Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in the region last week.
