DAVID TAFURI: What I would argue is that on policy grounds this ban is both too broad and not broad enough. Let me explain, here's why it's too broad. It denies Muslims from six predominantly Muslim countries, however --

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Let me just -- let me just stop and correct you. It makes no reference to religion at all. It doesn't ban Muslims, it bans people who live in six countries the Obama administration designated as chaotic and terror prone.

TAFURI: But the six countries that it banned, the only thing that they have in common is they are majority Muslim countries --

CARLSON: No, the thing they have in common is the Obama administration said they were dangerous.
