Racist border policies mean Toronto school board will no longer allow trips to Trump’s USA

From Boing Boing:

Toronto high-school students have been visiting the USA since their inception; I remember my own high-school trips to Buffalo’s Albright Knox gallery warmly. But they are a relic of the past, because the Toronto District School Board will not risk harassment and worse of its students at the US border, where people born to Arab or Muslim families, or in majority-Muslim families, report widespread discrimination.

The District may also cancel existing trips if the US continues to place new, racially motivated restrictions on travelers crossing the border.
