    APHA joins health and scientific groups denouncing immigration executive order

    On Jan. 27, Trump signed an 
    executive order that would restrict the admission of certain foreign nationals and refugees to the United States under the guise of protecting the nation from foreign terrorists. APHA joined other professional scientific and engineering societies in sending a letter urging the administration to rescind the executive order. In the letter, groups expressed profound concern that the executive order will reduce U.S. science and engineering output by discouraging “the best and brightest international students, scholars, and scientists from studying and working, attending academic and scientific conferences, or seeking to build new businesses in the United States.” APHA also joined other groups dedicated to promoting a diverse and culturally competent health and biomedical workforce in expressing concern regarding the impact that the executive order would have on patient care, health education and medical research.
