GDC responds to Trump's travel ban, refunds affected attendees

Organisers of upcoming developer conference says they are “horrified” by President's decision

The team behind the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco has declared its opposition to the executive order on immigration passed by President Trump.

The president has ordered a 90-day ban to anyone attempting to enter the United States from seven countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - all of which are predominantly Muslim. It is a move that has been met with widespread disapproval.

The official GDC Twitter account has responded, promising reimbursement for anyone now unable to attend the conference, which takes place in less than a month.
