NCCSD Develops List of Resources Related to Immigration and Disability

On January 27, 2017, the President released an Executive Order “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States.” This Executive Order  restricts or blocks nationals from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen from entering the U.S.
