OMAHA — More than 150 students, teachers and other employees at the University of Nebraska are struggling with President Trump’s travel ban.
Several students we talked with are facing uncertain futures, some not sure when they can go home.
“I haven’t seen my family for five years…so, right now that plan got cancelled due to the ban, because right now this ban give you a choice either sacrifice seen your family or sacrifice the future you have worked very hard for,” Ebrahim Abdulsattar, UNO students from Yemen, shared.
The university is continuing to recruit international students and hoping for the best.
“it is very important for us, that we are able to attract the best and brightest minds from across the world in order to solve the world’s problems and work with our global partners,” Jane Meza, said.
According to University officials they will stay on top of the situation and advise those affected as best they can.
