Governor Tom Wolf is also opposed to the order and travel ban, which prohibits anyone from seven specified nations from entering the United States for 90-days. Those nations are Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria, which are predominantly Muslim.
Governor Wolf sent multiple tweets on Saturday and Sunday expressing his disgust over the ban.
He also traveled to Philadelphia International Airport to support refugees who had been detained.
President Trump says the executive order is not a religious ban, but rather it is necessary for American security.
