Democratic lawmakers are launching personal attacks against President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries, The Hill reports.

"Immigrants are the best, the brightest and the bravest coming to our nation," Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., told reporters after a private caucus meeting.

"They are brave; President Trump is a coward," he continued. "And anyone who doesn't stand up against this ban joins the ranks of cowards."

Cowley said the 24 Republicans in Congress who have opposed the order are "not enough."

"The vast majority of our Republican colleagues have stayed silent, they've [run] away. And that's shameful."

Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., the caucus vice chairwoman, also decried Trump's order, along with his other actions during the first days of his administration.

"I searched mightily to try to characterize what the first 10 days of his presidency have been like, and the only words that come to mind are 'dumpster fire,'" she said.

"We have learned a very valuable lesson over the last 10 days, even those of us who had hopes that we could find some common ground. … We're learning not to take him at his word.

"We're watching his actions and thinking to ourselves [that] there's very little chance, I think at this point, that there is anything positive or productive that he is sincere about wanting to work with Democrats on," she continued.

"We are very wary ... very unsettled. We are watching in horror."

Democratic leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., held a rally on Tuesday outside the Supreme Court over his firing acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to defend Trump's order.
