Princeton University President Defends His Immigrants Against the Illegal Ban.

Princeton President Christopher L. Eisgruber issued the following statement to the University community on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017.

To the Princeton community,

Many of you have written to express concerns about the recent federal executive order barring entry to the United States for refugees and for citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries. I share those concerns. Since its early days, when the College of New Jersey recruited a transformative president from Scotland, this University has depended on America's ability to attract and engage with talented people from around the world. Princeton today benefits tremendously from the presence of extraordinary individuals of diverse nationalities and faiths, and we will support them vigorously.

The University has taken steps already to assist Princeton students and scholars who are affected by the executive order, including a small number who are currently traveling abroad and face difficulties returning to the United States. Dean of the Faculty Deborah Prentice and Dean of the Graduate School Sanjeev Kulkarni have issued messages providing preliminary information about the order and its consequences. Staff members in the Davis International Center and elsewhere on campus are working around the clock to assess the full impact of the order and to aid and counsel members of our community, including those who are currently outside the United States.

The legal implications of the executive order have been evolving rapidly. My colleagues in the University administration will continue to monitor developments and identify appropriate ways to assist affected individuals. We will update the community as needed to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff know how to obtain information or help.

Princeton will also continue to safeguard personal information about non-citizens as it does for all of its students, faculty, and staff. As I noted in a previous letter to the community, Princeton has policies in place to protect the privacy of every member of the University community. We do not disclose private information about our students, faculty, or staff to law enforcement officers unless we are presented with a valid subpoena or comparably binding requirement...

A Real President Speaks on Immigration

The illegitimate President, who has already violated his oath of office by refusing to defend the constitution, will need to face down many legitimate Presidents of many organizations and countries, all of whom, by vast leaps and bounds, exceed his tiny little bigoted brain by orders of magnitude.

1. I just received an email from the university my son attends

with similar language. The email stated that the university stands for diversity and stands with all members of the university community. It also advises faculty, staff, and students who come from any of the listed countries not to leave The United States.
