Statement from the ASP President

The American Society of Pharmacognosy stands in solidarity with the 151 scientific organizations who have signed a letter to President Donald Trump urging him to rescind his Executive Order of January 27 restricting immigration and visas. The letter well represents the detrimental impact of this action on the global scientific community, individual scientists and students from countries that have been singled out, and the very future of scientific leadership by the United States. ASP joins these scientific societies in voicing strong objection to this Executive Order and offering the administration assistance in creating an effective immigration and visa policy that stays true to American principles as a nation of immigrants.
