Dear Friends,

Potomac and Chesapeake ACAC joins our colleagues at NACAC in opposing this past Friday's executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. Many of you have seen NACAC's response, sent via email to all members on Monday. NACAC stands firmly against the executive order and will continue its advocacy on behalf of its members and their students. International ACAC has also published a statement opposing it, as have several other affiliates.  

At NACAC's Legislative Action Center, you can email your members of Congress to oppose the ban. Colleges who are still accepting applications from the affected countries can publish that information on the International ACAC site.

NACAC will hold its winter meeting in early March, and your PCACAC leadership team will be there. We expect this to be a major topic of discussion. We will keep you informed of NACAC's efforts as they develop, and we will continue to support you as you counsel your students.
