ASBMT Official Statement Opposing Executive Order on Immigration

President Donald Trump has signed an Executive Order (EO) proposing a 90-day suspension of visas and other immigration benefits to all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia, all countries with majority Muslim populations. We hope that this order does not evolve into a permanent ban.

The American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) opposes this EO, because it is discriminatory, contrary to our national health and security interests, and as it imposes specific limits on communities that comprise our membership and are cared for by our membership.
