Several Republican presidential candidates were quick to reject Donald Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, but not everyone.

Within an hour of Trump’s statement, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham and John Kasich had all publicly disparaged Trump’s position.

According to the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs, a spokesman for Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), claimed Paul was on the cutting edge of security for the U.S. and pointed to legislation Paul dropped in November that would have blocked many immigrants from Middle Eastern countries from coming to the U.S.
