The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) has joined with over 30 other organizations in denouncing the United States President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigrants from some Middle Eastern countries. The ban would bar citizens of Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the U.S. for 90 days, as well as all refugees for 120 days.

"The organizations express grave concern that the Executive Order will have a broad and far-reaching impact on artists’ freedom of movement and, as a result, will seriously inhibit creative freedom, collaboration, and the free flow of ideas," reads the opposition's statement. "U.S. border regulations, the organisations argue, must only be issued after a process of deliberation which takes into account the impact such regulations would have on the core values of the country, on its cultural leadership, and on the world as a whole."
