Federal travel ban: Important info & links
This is UUP's reference page with links and information about Donald Trump's Jan. 27 executive order, which bans immigrants and nonimmigrants from seven mostly Muslim countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, and Yemen - from entering the U.S.
UUP is outraged by this order and opposes it in the strongest possible way.
The ban presents a clear and immediate danger to SUNY students, faculty, staff and visiting scholars. According to the State University of New York, the university has 320 enrolled students from the seven countries under the travel ban. SUNY enrolls about 22,140 international students from 180 countries.
In response, UUP has set up a hotline phone number and email address for any SUNY student, faculty, staff, or visiting scholar who is detained or otherwise impacted by the travel ban.
The hotline number is 518-640-6633. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
New York state has also set up a hotline to protect refugees and report individuals who may be missing or detained. The number is 1-888-769-7243.
UUP has stood for diversity, inclusion, and acceptance of everyone, no matter their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin since its formation. On Jan. 30, the union's delegates unanimously approved a resolution, In Regard to President Trump's Recent Executive Order on Travel to the U.S. from Muslim Countries, condemning Trump's travel ban.
We strongly support the SUNY Board of Trustees' "Affirmation of Support for Undocumented Students", approved Jan. 24.
UUP will work with SUNY to provide aid to anyone affected by this ban. As of Jan. 27, SUNY is recommending that travel to any of the seven countries be suspended. Affected individuals should contact their campus Office of International Student and Scholar Services.
