Make an official statement from MIT supporting freedom of movement

This petition had 65 supporters

The recent executive order from the White House administration concerning immigrants has hurt families and economic interests around the world.  Further, while this order specifically aims to inhibit the right of Muslims to travel, more sweeping and more damaging decisions may follow. 

MIT is a research institution built on collaboration between people from different backgrounds who come together to fulfill MIT's goal of making the world a better place. The Institute strengthens its reputation through the contributions of its diverse community. Now, it is time to stand up for our values.

This petition from students, faculty, and alumni requests that MIT take a strong public position advocating for the open border policies that fuel our efforts to make the world a better place for everyone.
