Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Trump's new executive order on visas and travel:

"As I've said before, I think the idea that we should take a harder look at people coming into our country from war-torn nations with known terrorist networks is simply common sense. This is just a short pause in accepting immigrants from these countries to strengthen our national security. With this new executive order in place, I'm confident this policy will help keep America safe."
