Coalition Letter to Secretary of State Clinton regarding Ideological Exclusion
A coalition of groups write to thank Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for ending the ideological exclusion of two professors and to urge the State Department to expeditiously grant both scholars' pending visa applications so that they can attend the U.S. conferences, public events, and meetings to which they have been invited.
