University responds to executive order placing ban on immigration

MSU will not release the immigration status of students, officials say USC Officials Issue Statements to Students Following Immigration Ban
Roland Mccarthy | 31 January, 2017, 09:56

The email comes in the wake of President Donald Trump's executive order that may affect visa holders or permanent residents from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The worldwide students and scholars who choose Arkansas as their academic home away from home are a valuable part of our community.

Kaler noted that the school has more than 8,000 students and scholars from around the world, including hundreds from the seven nations identified in the executive order.

Grimes said there could be more people from the targeted countries but said the university doesn't track employees who are in the USA on permanent residence status-commonly known as green card holders. "We are aware of no WKU students or faculty members who are now overseas or being prevented from re-entering the country". At this time, the potential impact on our community members remains unclear.

As we have often said, UConn is committed to supporting every member of our community. We have a number of students who are from the countries listed in the executive order. Remember that we at Rowan University support all members of our community, regardless of their nationality, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual identity or gender expression - and regardless of whether they agree with us. "However, there still needs to be some type of action". "We know that there are more that probably haven't reached out yet". In addition, it's important to note that now only one student comes from the impacted countries. "That's something we can easily do".

She also says all of B.U.'s worldwide students are in the country and are accounted for.

"'Cause it's one thing to represent a group, it's another thing to actually include them in the decision making", he said. Kellyanne Conway, a White House adviser, told reporters that the changes were "a small price to pay" for national security. UAH is closely monitoring the situation, and says they will be maintaining contact with students and faculty that may be impacted.

At Washington State University more than 100 students are from the banned countries.

But, other students agree with our president that it's a smart move in order to keep our country safe from terrorism.

Reaching the semi-finals is beyond his wildest dreams at the age of 35 and he can not believe how well his comeback is going. Vandeweghe followed it up with an even more convincing performance against Muguruza, winning 6-4, 6-0, in 83 minutes.

On Monday, Curruthers said NMSU wants students to feel comfortable.

"And it's not all about graduation", he said.

Hart is recommending that global students and scholars at the UA postpone any planned worldwide travel until the matter is resolved.

Both organization were critical of the executive order.

"We are consulting with University leaders and others with expertise related to these issues, and we are seeking advice from the immigration attorneys appointed by the Commonwealth of Virginia to serve the state's public universities", Sullivan said about the order.

Richey said "we are a religiously diverse society".

"Even if the ban is lifted, I still won't leave", he said. It's just my opinion. "I would love to see some recognition of that and maybe there could be exemptions that we can achieve".
