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.
