Vanderbilt University , along with more than a dozen prestigious schools, are speaking out against President Trump's travel ban.

Ivy League schools are among the 17 universities urging federal judges to block Trump's travel ban, which bars immigrants or refugees from seven countries. They filed the 30-page brief with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The brief explains how the group of institutions has a global mission and needs diversity to function. The schools point out that the executive order threatens their ongoing education and research which relies on people from all over the world.
