ALA opposes recent Trump administration actions

Executive orders and actions of the Trump administration stand in stark contradiction to the values of the American Library Association. In a statement released Monday, ALA President Julie Todaro asserts, the ALA “strongly opposes any actions that limit free access to information, undermine privacy or discriminate on any basis. This includes the temporary suspension of visas and entrance to the U.S. based on anyone’s nationality or religion as well as the increased scrutiny of any individual’s communication such as mobile phone and/or social media activity.”
