Vicki Needham of The Hill offers this glimpse:
A top Senate Republican called Donald Trump’s call to ban Muslims from entering the United States a “huge mistake” that would fuel terror recruitment in the United States.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that the move could damage vital alliances in the region.
“I think this sends the wrong message to people that have to be part of our partnership for a solution,” Burr said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
“Yes, it does serve as fuel [for recruitment].”
Indeed; it’s a point Lalo Alcaraz made quite clearly last week.
