Our President’s Statement on the Recent Executive Order on Immigration

By: Winterline | February 2, 2017
Topics: Education
Appreciation for the diversity of experience, opinion, and perspective forms the basis of a global education.

Winterline Global Education is dedicated to offering unique skills-based learning experiences to students of ALL nationalities. Our students come from all parts of the world and are greatly enriched by their contact with peers from all over the world. As students, they travel widely, learning diverse skills in diverse parts of the globe and are warmly welcomed outside the United States.

It is counter to Winterline’s values that under the current minority-elected administration’s Executive Order, students from certain parts of the world are not welcomed or allowed into the United States, Winterline’s home country.

Appreciation for the diversity of experience, opinion, and perspective forms the basis of a global education. Banning people of a particular nationality, faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the US is antithetical to both Winterline’s and our nation’s core values.

Winterline will not be silent in the face of the Executive Order and will continue to stand for and to offer experiences which promote mutual respect and understanding between people of all nations.
