ICE reverses just announced Visa Restriction on Foreign Students

ICE reverses just announced visa restrictions on foreign college students with F-1 and M-1 visas! Last week’s restrictions would have forced any foreign college student to return home or transfer if their college is online only. The Trump Administration argued that they did not need to be in this country to attend their college if courses were all online. They were not going to make any exceptions because of the Pandemic, really trying to force all students back to the classroom, seemingly for political reasons.

The Trump administration was being sued in Federal Court by hundreds of Colleges and Universities, including Harvard and MIT because of the new restrictions placed on their foreign students.
