Friday, Feb. 10, 2017
TEMPE — More than 100 students and faculty at Arizona State University participated in the “Academics United” solidarity rally on the Tempe campus Thursday in support of those affected by President Donald Trump’s effort to impose a travel ban.
The president’s executive order halted travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Forty universities across the nation hosted similar rallies on their campuses. Many of the students affected shared concerns about being allowed back into the United States if they travel to see their families in their home countries.
