As you probably realized by the media, one the latest Trump´s administration executive order has been to ban the entrance of immigrants and citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen in the country. As UNL scholar and J-1 immigrant, I´m proud to be part of an international community with more than 3,000 students and scholars from around the about. I´m enormously grateful to all UNL community who received me as at home. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln embraces diversity and cultural engagement as a centerpiece for thriving within the top 20 American Universities for more than a century.
With these small words, I would like to express all of my support to all immigrants and citizens from muslim countries who may be affected by this unfair decision. I wish this will be a temporary measure and that banning will be normalised promptly.
