BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s two largest universities have cautioned their international students not to travel due to President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

Trump’s move temporarily bars refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the U.S. The order has sparked widespread protest.

North Dakota State University late last week emailed students from the seven countries, urging them to meet with an adviser if they have plans to travel outside the U.S. The email says, “most likely, it will be recommended you do not leave.”

The University of North Dakota in a weekend Facebook post cautioned international students not to travel, “even to Canada.”

UND International Programs Director Katie Davidson said in an interview that international staff and faculty also are being urged to stay put.
