U.S. President Trump’s New Travel Ban Likely To Affect Scientists’ Travel, Research

Nature: What Trump’s new travel ban means for science
“U.S. President Donald Trump has signed a revised version of his controversial travel ban. … Many scientists affected by the first policy have struggled to understand whether it is safe for them to leave the United States to visit family, attend scientific conferences, or conduct research. The new policy may not offer these people much comfort, says Stefano Bertuzzi, executive director of the American Society for Microbiology in Washington, D.C. … And there are many scientists whose movements will still be restricted under the new ban, which takes effect on 16 March. … Some scientific societies worry that the ban will be seen as a sign that the United States does not welcome foreigners — even those who are not from the six banned countries…” (Reardon, 3/6).
