Showdown with Donald Trump: University of Michigan refuses to release immigration

The University of Michigan on Saturday defied US President Donald Trump’s executive order on Muslim immigrants and refugees and refused to release the immigration status information of its international students.
On Saturday, the University’s President Mark Schlissel released a statement, on university website, affirming the varsity’s commitment to international students and faculty. Trump’s executive order signed on Friday bans the immigration and travel of people from many Muslim-majority countries.
“The university complies with federal requirements associated with managing its international programs,” Schlissel said in the statement. “Otherwise, the university does not share sensitive information like immigration status.”
The statement focused the University’s obligation and Schlemiel’s personal commitment to the institute’s international community.
