AAA Joins Call to End “Ideological Exclusion”

AAA is one of several academic, free-speech, and civil-rights organizations to sign a letter to top officials in the Obama administration urging them to end the federal government’s practice of denying visas to foreign intellectuals based on ideology.
The letter–addressed to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano–argues that the State and Homeland Security Departments have compromised U.S. interests by barring dozens of prominent scholars, artists, writers, and activists over the past eight years based on their ideas, political views, and associations. The full text of the letter to Attorney General Holder and Secretaries Clinton and Napolitano is available online at: [pdf]

A petition for individuals to sign has also been made available at Please circulate the petition to anyone you think might be interested.

Many governments are considering accepting a law according to which it will be possible for public schools to install cell phone jammers. Believe it or not, cell phone jammers have already been utilized by some schools as a tool to help them maintain discipline, which I personally think is a great measure.
