Yet another destructive policy change that advances a xenophobic and racist agenda against immigration

I am on an H-1B. This rule is looking like it will prevent new visas, visa renewals, *and* travel in & out of the country for people currently on these visas. I really should have gone home to visit my parents in December when I had the chance 😔
Most of my work is in the Neotropics and I've recruited Latinx international graduate students/postdocs to help build scientific capacity. Now I am unsure when I can recruit internationally again. This move will just lead to more scientific colonialism.
This will have massive implications for colleges and international students
this is a terrible idea that will help no one and will badly damage our science and technology industries, not to mention the heavy blow to our research community. These visas bring highly-specialized experts to the US every year, and we benefit enormously

Really cannot stop thinking about how dumb and malicious this is. Maybe the silver lining is the reminder that elections have consequences.
This person will single handed destroy US universities and the leadership the US has had in innovation. And in academia, this is certainly not an added pressure we should put our assist. profs through, as they so hard work to advance science. #Xenophobia

Let’s all be absolutely clear what this is about. This is about the fact that Stephen Miller is a absolute failure of a human being. The only way Stephen Miller “succeeds” is when he pushes other people down. 1/n
