    Sessions: I Don't Support Muslim Ban



    Tuesday, January 10, 2017 12:12 PM


    Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions says he does not support a ban on Muslims entering the United States.

    Trump proposed a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants during the Republican primary campaign, drawing sharp criticism from both parties. During the general election, he shifted his rhetoric to focus on temporarily halting immigration from an unspecified list of countries with ties to terrorism. Trump did not disavow the Muslim ban, which is still prominently displayed on his campaign website.

    Sessions, Trump's pick for attorney general, reiterated Trump's position of stronger vetting of potential terrorists at his confirmation hearing Tuesday, but he denounced a Muslim ban.

    Sessions said, "I do not support the idea that Muslims should be denied entry to the United States."

    Trump's Muslim ban only applied to immigration according to the press release and his published statements. He made it clear that it did not apply to diplomats, business visitors, tourists and other temporary visas. Trump also changed the statement to be specific to persons from countries with terrorists and instead of a ban of Muslims, an extreme vetting process for all immigrants.
