The United Arab Emirates, another close U.S. ally, has barred a New York University professor from the country after he criticized the monarchy’s exploitation of migrant laborers. Andrew Ross said he learned of the ban after arriving at the airport in New York, where he was set to board a flight to continue his research in the UAE. NYU recently opened a campus in the United Arab Emirates, the construction of which relied on migrant workers laboring under harsh conditions.
