APSA statement regarding President Trump's executive order "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States"
APSA condemns the new Executive Order issued on March 6, 2017, entitled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States,” and strongly urges President Trump to rescind it. Like the administration’s earlier Executive Order issued on January 27, this new order continues to generate detrimental effects on colleagues and students with whom we teach, write, and collaborate. It undermines academic freedom in the most fundamental way by restricting the ability of scholars to meet, learn and exchange ideas on campuses of American colleges and universities. As scholars and teachers, we deplore the interruption of research, teaching, and intellectual engagement that this order causes. Read full statement.Visit this link for travel ban resources.
