[liberationtech] ACM Expresses Concern About New Executive Order Suspending Visas

The Association for Computing Machinery, a global scientific and
educational organization representing the computing community,  expresses
concern over US President Donald J. Trump’s Executive Order imposing a
90-day suspension of visas to nationals of seven countries.

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are
central to the aims and goals of ACM.  ACM supports the statute of
International Council for Science in that the free and responsible practice
of science is fundamental to scientific advancement and human and
environmental well-being.  Such practice, in all its aspects, requires
freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for
scientists.  All individuals are entitled to participate in any ACM
activity.

ACM urges the lifting of  the visa suspension at or before the 90-day
deadline so as not to curtail the studies or contributions of scientists
and researchers.
