Regarding President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, the following can be attributed to Congressman Steve Stivers (OH-15): 

“While I agree with the President that we must improve our visa vetting process in order to better protect Americans, I believe the executive order risks violating our nation’s values and fails to differentiate mainstream Islamic partners from radical Islamic terrorists - setting back our fight against radical Islam,” Stivers said. “I urge the Administration to quickly replace this temporary order with permanent improvements in the visa vetting process.”
