Today, SER joined 179 professional scientific, engineering and education societies, national associations, and universities in a letter expressing concern over the recent immigration and visa executive order.

"The Executive Order will discourage many of the best and brightest international students, scholars, and scientists from studying and working, attending academic and scientific conferences, or seeking to build new businesses in the United States. Implementation of this policy will compromise the United States’ ability to attract international scientific talent and maintain scientific and economic leadership."
