A college in Massachusetts is standing up to President Donald Trump by offering a scholarship to students that come from the seven predominately Muslim countries recently placed on an immigration ban list.

麻州一所学院挺身抗拒总统川普,向来自近期被列入移民禁止名单的7个穆斯林为主国家的学生提供奖学金。

Wheaton College’s "refugee scholarship" will prioritize students seeking immediate entrance to the U.S., in the hope that Trump’s ban will be lifted soon.

惠顿学院的「难民奖学金」在川普禁令很快就会解除的期盼下,将优先提供给目前寻求进入美国的学生。

"The Wheaton Refugee Scholarship will cover all costs of attendance and will be awarded to a refugee student from a war-torn nation," the school announced. "Selection preference will be for a qualified student from one of the seven nations outlined in the president’s executive order on immigration:Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen."

「惠顿难民奖学金将涵盖就学的所有费用,并颁发给来自战火蹂躏国家的难民学子,」该校宣布。「优先选择对象将是来自总统移民限令罗列的七个国家──伊朗、伊拉克、利比亚、索马利亚、苏丹、叙利亚与叶门──的一名合格学生。」

Wheaton says people from the affected countries "have faced extraordinary hardships and we believe it is our responsibility as global educators to make this commitment at this time."

惠顿表示,受影响国家的人民「已面临异常的艰难,我们认为此时作出这项承诺,是我们身为全球教育工作者的责任。」

Trump’s ban on refugees led to protests at airports across the nation. Even within the State Department, 900 employees formally denounced the president’s actions.

川普的难民禁令导致全美各地机场引发抗议风潮。甚至在国务院内,有900名职员正式谴责总统的行动。
