THE ISSUE

President Trump’s immigration ban unconstitutionally singles out refugees based on their religion. This is NOT who we are as Americans.

These actions are directly affecting our students and our members.

A CUNY doctoral student and PSC union member was denied reentry after visiting family in Iran. At University at Buffalo, several international students were absent the first day of the semester. SUNY has warned 320 students from countries banned by President Trump against traveling abroad.

As educators, our classrooms are sanctuaries and our students are family. Every day, across this state we teach and model lessons in tolerance, inclusion, respect and understanding to our students, who hail from more than 140 nations and practice many different faiths.

We urge you to continue to fight this and every other form of discrimination.
