Presidents of NJASCU institutions issue a collective statement of disapproval of President Trump's Executive Order on Immigration (February 6, 2017)

"The federal executive order issued January 27, 2017 aiming to protect the United States from foreign terrorists entering our country has serious and deleterious implications for our students and for our institutions, and we respectfully request the administration to reconsider its action."

Background from NJASCU CEO - NJASCU Institutions Update on President Trump's Executive Order on Immigration (January 31, 2017)

Late in the afternoon on Friday, Jan. 27, President Trump signed an executive order titled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The order bars entry to refugees from anywhere in the world for 120 days, and from Syria indefinitely. It blocks any visitors for 90 days from seven designated countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The executive order states that upon the resumption of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, the program should “prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.” The executive order also decreases the number of refugees to be admitted into the U.S. in fiscal year 2017 from the target of 110,000 set by the Obama administration to no more than 50,000. More

The full executive order is available in the Federal Register published Feb. 1:
