Support by Canadian Economics Association for researchers impacted by Trump's travel ban:
"The Canadian Economics Association is aware that that some members of the Canadian economic profession have been seriously impacted by the recent U.S. executive order barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. For example, some students will not be able to consider job market prospects at U.S. universities or conduct research in the U.S. during the ban.
