Oregon U.S. Senator Ron Wyden joined fellow Democrats today (Tuesday) condemning comments made by Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, about Muslims. Trump said he thinks all Muslims should be barred from entering the U.S., either as immigrants or visitors.

Wyden described Trump's statements as "outlandish" and "insulting to our American values of welcoming refugees from violent oppression and terror."

Wyden: "As a child of parents who fled Nazi Germany as refugees, I fully appreciate both the embrace this country provided my family and the perils of failing to confront hateful speech when it arises."

Wyden reiterated the U.S. screening process needs to remain as strong as possible to protect Americans. There has been bi-partisan backlash against Trump's statements he made yesterday (Monday).
