Feb 1, 2017 – Harvard President Condemns Donald Trump’s Immigration Ban, Says Half Of School’s Deans Are Immigrants

Harvard President Drew Faust criticized President Trump’s imigration ban in an email to the Harvard community recently, The Harvard Crimson reported.

“Nearly half of the deans of Harvard’s schools are immigrants—from India, China, Northern Ireland, Jamaica, and Iran.

“Benefiting from the talents and energy, the knowledge and ideas of people from nations around the globe is not just a vital interest of the University; it long has been, and it fully remains, a vital interest of our nation,” she continued, in an email that urged the Trump Administration, Congress, and court system to reconsider the order.

Faust’s words come amid backlash over an executive order which bars ctizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from traveling to the US for 90 days.

Opponents of the ban worry that the temporary travel suspension will turn into a permanent ban. Two Harvard affiliates have been blocked from entering the US since the order was issued, according to The Crimson.

  1. TRUMP, I KNOW you mean good. But sometimes the best and frankest of intents turn out to worsen situations. I think you should ease on the pedal a little.

  2. Imagine, how could she not understand the reason(s) behind the executive order! Losers are full of it, they should abandon their emotions and face the reality of this beautiful order. In Angola, Islam is not tolerated because they know the consequences. Not every human tribe can practice Commonsensical Islam that the Yorubas are into, all you see in other places is trouble. Let these people take their intolerance to their countries or their holy land (Saudi) and Christians should stop or watch out for these snakes!
