We the people ask the federal government to Change an existing Administration policy:

Allow International Students to Finish Their Degrees

Created on July 06, 2020

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today that international students attending U.S. universities which go online-only for classes this year due to COVID-19 MUST LEAVE THE UNITED STATES or transfer to a college with in-person classes.

Students should not have to choose between their health and completing their degree programs.

1. International students make up about 5% of the entire U.S. college enrollment and contribute BILLIONS of dollars annually to the U.S. economy.

2. It's already July and classes typically start in August. It will be difficult (if not impossible), cost prohibitive, and potentially unsafe for students to enroll in a new university

Please treat international students with the same respect due to any college student in our country.
