Travel ban would affect 117,000 students including land-grants
February 9, 2017
A federal judge has stopped President Donald Trump's ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, but Inside Higher Ed reported last week that the 90-day ban affects 117,000 students from those countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
The article includes a quotation from Peter McPherson, the president of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, who said the ban may affect the decisions of all international students considering attending land grant universities.
