Duke University is vowing to defy President Donald Trump's executive order regarding immigrants with school officials saying they won’t hand over confidential student records to law enforcement officials without a subpoena.

Duke President Richard Brodhead and Provost Sally Kornbluth told the North Carolina campus' student newspaper:

"The new restrictions on immigration to the United States by residents of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen … are both confusing and disturbing. … We have advised individuals from the affected countries avoid all international travel for the immediate future.

"While the current environment remains unsettled, we want to restate that Duke University cannot and will not share confidential student records with law enforcement agencies— local, state, or federal—without a subpoena.”

Trump's executive order stops all refugees from entering the U.S. and restricts immigration from seven primarily Muslim countries for 90 days which could affect international students with lawful visas.
