Statement of American Association of University Professors

Your support helps the ACLU stand up for human rights and defend civil liberties.
The Association has long held that the free circulation of scholars is an inseparable part of academic freedom. Foreign scholars invited to speak or work in this country should not be barred by our government from entering the United States because of assumptions about their political beliefs, associations, or writings. The Association supports the free exchange of ideas in an atmosphere of openness, tolerance, and civility, out of the conviction that this exchange is necessary to the unfettered search for knowledge, which in turn is indispensable for the strengthening of a free and orderly world.
