Showdown with Donald Trump: University of Michigan refuses to release immigration status of international students

NEW DELHI: The University of Michigan on Saturday challenged US President Donald Trump's official request on Muslim foreigners and refugees+ and declined to discharge the migration status data of its global students."The college consents to government prerequisites related with dealing with its worldwide projects," Schlissel said in the announcement. "Something else, the college does not share delicate data like migration status."

The announcement centered the University's commitment and Schlissel's own dedication to the organization's worldwide group.

The University has been conceding remote understudies since the late 1840s, the announcement said.

"Encouraging a situation that advances instruction and research at the largest amounts is among my most vital obligations as the University of Michigan's leader," Schlissel said.

" The authority of the college is focused on ensuring the rights and openings as of now accessible to all individuals from our scholastic group, and to do whatever is conceivable inside the law to keep on identifying, enroll, bolster and hold scholarly ability, at all levels, from around the globe. Trump's unlawful Muslim boycott is a demonstration of dread against understudies who are in this nation legitimately to get an instruction. Colleges the nation over are scrambling to console understudies and keep them from leaving the nation," Schlissel said.Read more:-International Database

Don't use steel from India, Italy in Keystone pipeline: US Senators

Washington: An influential group of nine Democratic Senators has urged President Donald Trump to not let a Canadian company use foreign made steel, in particular from India and Italy, in the trans-national multibillion controversial Keystone oil pipeline.

"Further, we are deeply concerned that by allowing this Canadian firm to use foreign steel from countries like India and Italy, which have a history of dumping steel products in the US market at unfair, illegal prices, you are establishing a precedent that will have the effect of costing US jobs and undermining the spirit of your Presidential Memorandum," the Senators wrote.

Led by Senators Chris Van Hollen and Tammy Duckworth the Democratic lawmakers urged Trump to protect American jobs by ensuring all new pipelines ? if approved ? are constructed and maintained with American made products and equipment.

Other signatories to the letter are Cory A. Booker, Thomas R. Carper, Al Franken, Christopher S. Murphy, Debbie Stabenow, Joe Donnelly Claire McCaskill, Robert Menendez, and Gary C. Peters.

British PM Theresa May says Trump 'recognises importance of NATO'

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May said Friday that she believed US President Donald Trump "recognises the importance and significance of NATO", despite him days earlier dubbing the military alliance obsolete.

In an interview with the Financial Times newspaper, May said: "I'm also confident the USA will recognise the importance of the cooperation we have in Europe to ensure our collective defence and collective security."

The British premier is expected to visit Trump in the spring, according to Downing Street, although the FT reported that she could go to Washington as early as next month.

Meanwhile, May congratulated Trump after he took office on Friday.

"From our conversations to date, I know we are both committed to advancing the special relationship between our two countries and working together for the prosperity and security of people on both sides of the Atlantic," she said.

"I look forward to discussing these issues and more when we meet in Washington."

Earlier this week, before he was sworn in as president, Trump told two European newspapers he had long warned that NATO had "problems".

"Number one, it was obsolete, because it was designed many, many years ago," he said, referring to its Cold War, post-World War II origins.

"Number two, the countries aren't paying what they're supposed to pay."

Donald Trump the `presumptive` White House nominee as Cruz crashes out

Donald Trump looked all-but-certain of carrying the Republican Party colors in the 2016 presidential election after the billionaire political novice sent his only serious challenger Ted Cruz crashing out of the race.

Addressing jubilant supporters at Trump Tower in New York after romping to his seventh straight state-wide victory in the Indiana primary, the real estate mogul promised them: "We`re going to win in November, and we`re going to win big, and it`s going to be America first."

Tuesday`s contest in the midwestern state was seen as a final firewall by the "stop Trump" movement seeking to prevent him from locking in the party nomination.

But as the race was called overwhelmingly in Trump`s favor, Cruz conceded to supporters in Indianapolis that he no longer had a viable path forwards.

"We left it all on the field in Indiana," Cruz said. "We gave it everything we`ve got, but the voters chose another path."

"And so with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign."

It was a stunning denouement for the arch-conservative Texas senator who had insisted he would press on to the final day of the Republican race.

His departure leaves the low-polling Ohio Governor John Kasich as Trump`s only challenger for the nomination -- making it a virtual certainty that he will go head to head in a general election matchup with the likely Democratic flagbearer Hillary Clinton.

The top echelon of the Republican establishment said as much minutes after Cruz capitulated, with Republican Party chief Reince Priebus declaring Trump the "presumptive" nominee.

"Donald Trump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton," Priebus said, in an extraordinary move to embrace a candidate the party establishment fought tooth and nail to stop.

Clinton meanwhile suffered an upset in Indiana as her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders mounted a come-from-behind victory, denying the former secretary of state a feather in her cap as she seeks their party`s presidential nomination.

Sanders, a self-declared democratic socialist, beat Clinton by 53.2 percent to 46.8 percent with about three quarters of precincts reporting -- although Clinton remained well ahead in the overall delegate battle for the nomination.Cruz had been hoping to use the midwestern state to block Trump from receiving the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination ahead of the Republican convention in Cleveland in July.

But the bombastic real estate mogul -- who has thus far defied all political logic to lead the Republican race -- swept the arch-conservative senator aside.

Trump was leading Cruz by about 53 percent to 37 percent, with Kasich languished at less than eight percent.

"Lyin` Ted Cruz consistently said that he will, and must, win Indiana. If he doesn`t he should drop out of the race-stop wasting time & money," Trump taunted in a tweet.

With 1,002 delegates to his name, Trump was already in favorable position to reach the magic number needed to avoid a contested party convention. With Cruz out of the race, crossing the threshold is a foregone conclusion for Trump.

Even before the Indiana results, Trump and Clinton had pivoted toward one another.

"I`m really focused on moving into the general election," Clinton said confidently Tuesday in West Virginia.

"That`s where we have to be because we are going to have a tough campaign against a candidate who`ll literally say or do anything," she said of Trump. "We`re going to take him on at every turn."

Cruz`s exit comes after the primary battle took a nasty turn Tuesday when Trump cited a tabloid report linking Cruz`s father Rafael to John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Trump raised the recent National Enquirer story in his interview with Fox News.

"This is just kooky," an irate Cruz shot back while stumping in Evansville, Indiana, branding Trump a "pathological liar."

"The man is utterly amoral," said Cruz, adding that "we are staring at the abyss" if Trump wins the White House. Source: http://zeenews.india.com
