After Donald Trump issued his destructive and cold-hearted executive order following his inauguration, with the intentions to suspend immigration to the US from 7 mainly Muslim countries, many people were shocked and scared – with objections being made from campuses throughout America, and for valid reasons too! Clearly the ban affects Muslims, including current and future students, but the reach is so much wider than this, something in which many people do not seem to be realising.
A number of universities in America have been at the forefront of confrontation, expressing their views and boasting the many benefits of immigration. In fact, last week a group of leading US universities including but not limited to Stanford, Harvard and Yale filed papers in a Brooklyn federal court to challenge the ban. 17 universities in total joined together to show how passionate they are, explaining that the travel ban not only affected students and staff, some of which were left stranded in other countries and unable to access the US, but also future international talent which could contribute highly to Americas success.
Amid a horrific atmosphere of political disruption with policies going against the interests of institutions and education, such fears and anxieties are totally valid and it great to see people standing up for themselves.
