NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," an idea that prompted rival Jeb Bush to call him "unhinged."
    
The proposed ban would apply to immigrants and visitors alike, a sweeping prohibition affecting all adherents of Islam who want to come to the U.S. The idea also raised immediate questions about whether it could pass muster under constitutional protections of the free exercise of religion.
    
Trump's campaign said in a statement such a ban should stand "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."
    
The statement added that Trump's proposal comes in response to a level of hatred among "large segments of the Muslim population" toward Americans.
