FASEB Joins Effort Opposing Executive Order On Immigration

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology joined 151 leading scientific, engineering, and academic organizations in urging President Trump to rescind the executive order on immigration.

The effort was led by the American Association for the Advancement of Science and culminated in a letter sent to President Trump on January 31.

“The executive order will discourage many of the best and brightest international students, scholars and scientists from studying and working, attending academic and scientific conferences, or seeking to build new businesses in the United States,” the letter said. “Implementation of this policy will compromise the United States’ ability to attract international scientific talent and maintain scientific and economic leadership.”
