Shortly after taking office, the Trump administration put into effect an executive order prohibiting the travel to the United States of citizens from seven designated countries, describing them as “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” The move set off a firestorm of political, civic, and legal debate about the nature of the ban, its social and economic impact, and whether the order makes the country’s borders more or less safe. The documented increase in recent years of hate crimes, notably against Muslims in the United States, raises questions about the tensions – overt and hidden – that exist in our country around diversity, security, and nationalism.

In 2013, the United States and South Korea celebrated 60 years of allegiance. The expansive relationship that exists between the two nations is based on common values and interests of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. The two countries cooperate on the basis of combatting regional and global threats, in addition to strengthening their respective economies. Having joined the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) in 1996, South Korea’s economy has continually evolved, making trade and investment important aspects of the U.S. – South Korea relationship. South Korea is now the sixth-largest goods trading partner with the United States. The nation’s trillion-dollar economy has benefited from U.S. firms investing abroad, and South Korea, in return, has made significant investments in the Unites States. There are large-scale flows of manufactured goods, agricultural products, services, and technology between the two democratic nations.
