February 2, 2017 - Statement from the International Student Center on the Immigration Executive Order
Dear SU International Students,
The Seattle University International Student Center realizes that the recent immigration policy changes enacted by the Trump Administration have had a big impact on our international students and scholars. As a new government administration is now in Office here in the United States, there are always changes to large-scale societal systems that accompany new leadership, and I am writing to update you on what these changes are and how they might impact you as a non-resident immigrant within the USA. This Executive Order contains provisions that seriously impact individuals from particular countries of origin. Additionally, effects of the Executive Order’s increased screening procedures will likely have an impact on travel and possibly adjudication of USCIS benefits for many other immigrant or non-immigrant visa holders. If you have any immediate questions or concerns about your immigration status, please know that the International Student Center is here as an immigration resource.
Overview of the JANUARY 27, 2017 Executive Order “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States”
Individuals on both Immigrant* or Non-Immigrant Visas from Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen (ie. Nationals of these countries, or including those who were born in or are permanent residents of these countries, or are dual nationals) please be aware of the following key issues which directly impact the ability to obtain visas or enter the US.
Individuals on Immigrant or Non-Immigrant Visas from all other countries please be aware of the following additional issues of concern. For the near future, the SU International Student Center recommends minimizing international travel due to the changing nature of the new administration’s policies on visas and U.S. entry.
The International Students Center will continue to monitor immigration related changes impacting our international students, and if you need anything our have outstanding questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 206-296-6260 or at email@example.com.
