NCM Response – President Trump’s Executive Order

Worldwide opposition to President Trump’s January 27th, 2017 executive order on visas and immigration has been unprecedented. The Society for the Neural Control of Movement (NCM) joins these dissenting voices  including those of the numerous scientific societies and institutions of higher learning (AAAS, SfN, NY Times Story) that have expressed concern. We enlist the call for the immediate revocation of this order and the restoration of suspended rights to those individuals it has affected.

NCM strongly believes that the best science arises from the free flow of ideas among scientists of all nationalities, and that limitation of such exchange  inevitably impedes scientific progress. This order will have detrimental influence by isolating US researchers from the international scientific community – resulting in a disastrous loss of fruitful exchange –  and thus be a substantive hindrance to future discovery.

In addition to opposing this executive order’s humanitarian injustice and scientific short-sightedness, NCM registers concern for scientific colleagues directly impacted by the ban’s strictures. The order affects those residing outside the US who are now prevented from entering the country for conferences or other educational or research purposes. It also affects those currently residing in the US for whom leaving and re-entering the country could pose serious risks. NCM will work directly with any scientists or trainees whose ability to attend the Society’s 2017 Annual Meeting in Dublin may be compromised. Full details of the assistance available are on the registration page of this web site . Finally, we urge US citizens to contact their congressional representatives to voice opposition to the executive order restricting visas and immigration.

Signed,
Lee Miller, President
On behalf of the Board of the Society for the Neural Control of Movement
