Arnold Schwarzenegger blast Trump's Ban Policy "immigration ban makes us look stupid"

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the latest high-profile celebrity to strongly criticize Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Schwarzenegger himself is an immigrant who came to the U.S. from his native Austria nearly 50 years ago.

“To go and ban people who have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently and you are on the way to permanent citizenship,” he continued. “I was in that position… It’s crazy, it’s crazy and makes us look stupid when the White House is ill-prepared to put this kind of executive order out there.” (On Sunday, the White House said that green card holders are no longer subject to the ban.)
Schwarzenegger, who like Trump was an entertainment figure who successfully ran for public office, said he understands the difficulties of transitioning to a first-time high-level position in government. “You go in there new, you have a new team and mistakes are made; I hope this is a wake-up call for them,”
