    AMS Statement on the Banning of Immigrants and Refugees

    Dear Colleagues,

    I’m sure we have a number of SMT members who are also members of AMS—I am.  For those who are not, you may be interested to learn that the AMS has issued a strongly worded statement in opposition to the executive order that closed our borders to residents of a number of foreign countries.  The statement can be found here:  http://www.ams-net.org/AMS-condemns-executive-order.php

    I can attest that this executive action has had a significant impact on my university, which like so many research universities serves students from around the world and also has a number of foreign-born faculty members.  Quite independent of our individual institutions, both scholarship (think conferences) and performance (think touring ensembles) are by their very nature international.
