In response to President Trump’s sweeping executive order on immigration, nearly 50 higher education organizations united Tuesday to urge the secretary of homeland security to ensure that the United States remains an ambition for the brightest students and scholars from around the world. On Friday, Trump signed the order, which began a temporary ban on allowing people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States, and suspended admission of refugees for 120 days.
