Resources on Immigration and Refugee Concerns

The President of the United States recently signed an executive order that implements a 90-day entry ban on entry to the United States for individuals traveling from seven majority-Muslim nations, places a 120-day suspension on all refugee programs, and suspends the entry of all Syrian refugees indefinitely.

This executive order has an immediate impact on English language learners and educators. To help teachers and learners understand and respond to this situation, TESOL has provided a list of resources. We will be updating this list, so please check back often.

If you have a resource to add to this list, please contact David Cutler.
