Travel Ban Full Coverage

On Friday, Jan. 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order that banned citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from temporarily entering into the United States.

At this time, according to the university, there are 145 students that are directly affected by this ban.

Immediately following the enactment of the order, protests began around the nation and in Corvallis. The #nobanCorvallis protest on Jan. 30 saw several hundred community members gather in front of the Benton County Courthouse to speak out against President Trump’s actions and included speeches from local figures such as Corvallis School Board member Sami Al-AbdRabbuh and Oregon State Senator Sara Gelser. 

As the week went on, the Orange Media Network news team continued to follow up with the OSU administration, with local politicians, political science professors and local experts, as well as students that are directly affected by the immigration ban. 

We have compiled our complete coverage of the immigration ban through the lenses of those in the OSU community. You can find the in-depth story that appeared in the Feb. 6 Baro as well as the story on the #nobanCorvallis protest, the accompanying photo galleries, live tweets and video from the protest, as well as extended audio interviews from multiple individuals.
