Dear PNACAC Members,

During this time of uncertainty the Pacific Northwest Association for College Admission Counseling (PNACAC) is joining many organizations in denouncing President Trump’s Immigration Executive Order from Friday, January 27, 2017. This Executive Order bans “entry of all refugees to the United States for 120 days, [barring] Syrian refugees indefinitely, and [blocking] entry into the United States for 90 days for citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.” PNACAC stands by our members and the students and families they serve regardless of age, gender, sex, race, color, country of origin, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, immigration status, or disability.
