Jan 30, 2017: The AILG Board of Directors firmly supports the MIT Administration’s ameliorative efforts regarding the Executive Order signed by President Trump on January 27, 2017 restricting individuals from seven countries, including those having U.S. Government-approved travel documents, from entering the United States. This order directly impacts the MIT community, including international students who are members of fraternities, sororities and independent living groups (FSILGs). We are deeply concerned for these students, scholars, and leaders of MIT; we stand in solidarity with our affected brothers and sisters, and we fully support the MIT administration’s urgent work on behalf of all impacted students.
