Ramsey said he would not support an "explicitly religious test" for immigration. He didn't specify in his statement which countries he'd include in his ban, other than that it's a "long list."

Federal courts - including the U.S. Supreme Court - have upheld that immigration and admission of noncitizens to the United States is a federal responsibility and one managed wholly by the federal government.
