Rutgers and Princeton Presidents Urge Trump to Drop the Immigration Ban

New Brunswick, NJ, February 4, 2017 — Adam Clark reports in The Star-Ledger that Rutgers President Robert Barchi and Princeton University President Chris Eisbruber joined more than 40 other college leaders Thursday in urging President Donald J. Trump to rescind his executive order banning immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries.

The college presidents wrote a letter to Trump telling him that his order threatens American higher education and the defining principles of the country.

“The order specifically prevents talented, law-abiding students and scholars from the affected regions from reaching our campuses,” the college presidents wrote.  “American higher education has benefited tremendously from this country’s long history of embracing immigrants from around the world.”

They continued, “America’s educational, scientific, economic, and artistic leadership depends upon our continued ability to attract the extraordinary people who for many generations have come to this country in search of freedom and a better life.”

Clark reports that the letter follows a protest by hundreds of Rutgers students Tuesday and pledges by both Barchi and Eisbruber to assist and protect all students, regardless of their immigration status.

About 17,000 U.S. college students are from the seven nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — affected by Trump’s order.

Trump’s order forced colleges to scramble to help both students and faculty from those countries who were traveling and left stranded.

Rutgers on Monday said it had students, researchers and professors from the affected counties who were traveling over the weekend.
