This straight from the right wing "think tank" The Heritage Foundation:

After diligently listing all the intelligence background checks and interviews an applicant goes thru. Basically the same list every other news outlet has published. The Heritage Foundation concludes:

"That's why the best recommendation for Congress right now is to demand detailed information from the administration on how risks are being mitigated. The administration should remain selective in the refugees it accepts, focusing on those applicants about whom the U.S. has an acceptable amount of intelligence.

While this process is even more rigorous than most other visa programs, after the attack in San Bernardino, the American people deserve and Congress should request details about how all forms of vetting can be and should be constantly improved. The government owes it to its citizens to use all lawful tools at its disposal to prevent terrorist travel.

Americans deserve a responsible program so they can continue to support refugees while also addressing real security concerns."

Sounds sensible to me but that is a far cry from an Executive Order and a complete travel "ban".
