Anger Over US Decision On Foreign Students’ Visas

BBC News:– Politicians and academics have criticised a decision to withdraw US visas from foreign students whose courses move fully online.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said people could face deportation unless they changed to an institution with in-person tuition.

A number of US universities are considering online teaching in the new academic year due to coronavirus.

It is not clear how many people will be affected.

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program, which is operated by ICE, had introduced a temporary exemption to allow students whose courses had moved online for the spring and summer semesters to remain in the US.

However, the exemption will not be extended into the new academic year. The decision affects students who are in the US on F-1 and M-1 visas, according to the ICE statement.

The news came on the same day that Harvard announced all course instruction would be delivered online in the new academic year, including for the limited number of students allowed to live on campus.

  1. Yes, the brain drain situation it too real send them all back to contribute to their respective countries. After all, they hate racist America and wish bad for the country…so send them back.

  2. Retard, it’s because most Caribbean countries have ****** up education systems so students have to leave for a better life. Yes America is racist but the current administration does nothing about it. Although America is racist it’s better than the caribbean by far and many international students can agree. Educate yourself before you talk please.

    • Personal attack noted, I expressed my opinion in a public forum and you attack me. Shame on you. Why cant we fix our country and ensure that we have a proper education system, rather than go to “racist” America. But you are an angry person, who is looking for someone to blame, rather than address the problem. Cant have a discussion with angry , emotional people of your caliber. *spits in face*
