2018 Senate Candidate says “Trump Travel Executive Order puts Rights of Citizens First”

Kelli Ward is challenging incumbent Senator Jeff Flake for the U.S. Senate seat up in the August 2018 Republican Primary. Ward, a physician and former State Senator from Lake Havasu City, held John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote in her 2016 race against the 30-year incumbent.

Trump “correct in standing up for American national security”

Tempe, AZ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today hailed President Trump’s Executive Order concerning travel from countries deemed to be state sponsors of terrorism. “President Trump is correct in standing up for American national security through a tough executive order putting the rights of Americans to be safe from terrorism ahead of the non-existent ‘rights’ of those who think they are entitled to enter our country,” Ward, a physician who previously served in the Arizona State Senate, said.

In a prepared statement and video from her campaign, Ward noted that the FBI is investigating more than 300 refugees for possible terrorism ties. “Taxpayer dollars are being used to investigate people who may not even have been in the US had enhanced vetting procedures been in place,” added Ward. “People who want to travel to the US from countries that are state sponsors of terrorism, countries that harbor terrorists from groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and countries without the ability to vet their own citizens must be scrutinized prior to entering our country.”
