The American Association for the Advancement of Science responded to the travel order signed by President Trump that could temporarily bar entry to the United States for individuals including scientists and students from six countries. We are concerned that the executive order announced March 6 may be implemented in a manner that will continue to restrict travel to the United States and negatively impact students and scientists who seek to work and collaborate with their peers in the United States, said Rush Holt, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the Science family of journals. Scientific progress depends on openness, transparency, and the free flow of ideas; these principles have helped the United States attract and benefit from international scientific talent. Impacts to U.S. leadership in science, technology, and innovation should be considered in development of immigration and visa policy.
