During all the uncertainty surrounding President Trump’s executive order on travel from seven nations, one KU law professor is offering her advice to students from abroad.
Lua Yuille is an immigration law expert who has both applied her knowledge in the courtroom and as a professor in the classroom.
She offers the following tips for students who may be affected by this order:
- Students from the seven countries should limit their travel outside of the U.S. until there is more information about how the executive order will be implemented moving forward.
- Students should contact the International Student Office to make sure their student visas remain in status.
- Students who aren’t from the seven countries but are international students should also wait to travel until they have more clarity about possible expansion on the area the order affects.
Yuille has seen legislation like this before, a few aspects stand out.
“What is surprising is the speed,” Yuille said. “What is unprecedented is the lack of agreement in various parts, even of the federal government. What is special, maybe, is the quick and immediate outcry by the public.”
