GOP rep: Trump's Muslim ban 'unconstitutional'
by Mark Hensch
Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) on Friday said Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on Muslim travel into the U.S. would not survive constitutional scrutiny.
"If I had to pick a particular position that would concern me the most, it would be the ban on Muslims," Cole, a lawmaker close to GOP leadership, said Friday on MSNBC. "I think it's clearly, you know, unconstitutional, it's ill-advised, it would really hurt the U.S.
"We need a lot of Muslim friends to deal with what we're dealing with overseas, and we have some great Muslim friends. And we ought to recognize that and be sensitive."
