    Trump rescinds rule barring foreign students from taking all classes online

    Trump administration rescinds rule barring foreign students from taking all classes online

    [USC was one of the schools that had decided to hold Fall classes online.

    The rule created a dilemma for thousands of foreign students who stayed in the U.S. after their colleges shifted to remote learning last spring

    JULY 14, 2020 12:16 PM

    BOSTON — The Trump administration has rescinded a rule that would have required international students to transfer schools or leave the country if their colleges hold classes entirely online this fall because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced the decision as a court hearing was getting underway on a challenge to the rule by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


    Under the policy, international students in the U.S. would have been forbidden from taking all of their courses online this fall. New visas would not be issued to students at schools planning to provide all classes online, which includes Harvard. Students already in the U.S. would face deportation if they didn’t transfer schools or leave the country voluntarily.


    The rule created a dilemma for thousands of foreign students who stayed in the U.S. after their colleges shifted to remote learning last spring.


    As part of the policy, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has told colleges to notify the agency no later than Wednesday if they plan to hold all classes online this fall. Other colleges would have until Aug. 1 to share their fall plans with ICE.

    The case is being heard by U.S. District Judge Allison Burroughs, who was nominated to the court in 2014 by former President Barack Obama.
    The policy has drawn sharp backlash from higher education institutions, with more than 200 signing court briefs supporting the challenge by Harvard and MIT. Colleges say the policy puts students’ safety at risk and hurts schools financially. At least seven other suits have been filed by schools and states opposing the policy.

    Immigration officials issued the policy last week, reversing earlier guidance from March 13 telling colleges that limits around online education would be suspended during the pandemic. University leaders believe the rule is part of President Donald Trump’s effort to pressure the nation’s schools and colleges to reopen this fall even as new virus cases rise.


    Harvard and MIT argued that immigration officials violated procedural rules by issuing the guidance without justification and without allowing the public to respond. They also argued that the policy contradicts ICE’s March 13 directive telling schools that existing limits on online education would be suspended “for the duration of the emergency.”

    Immigration officials, however, say they told colleges all along that any guidance prompted by the pandemic was subject to change. They say the rule is consistent with existing law barring international students from taking classes entirely online. Federal officials say they are providing leniency by allowing students to keep their visas even if they study online from abroad this fall.

    Weak move by the Trump Administration. Weary of holding out hope for anything meaningful. Tens of millions of illegal aliens will be eligible for amnesty with any amnesty granted to any size group. The illegal aliens under DACA do not hold “America First” views and will side with far left democrats on issues important to maintain a prospering America.

    This about face is caving to the cheap foreign labor mob. Chamber of Commerce, Silicon Valley, Jared Kushner and friends, social justice trouble makers, and haters of “America First.”

    The American people are not first with these amnesty overtures. “America First” patriotic citizens do not support or get away with the constant lawlessness that illegal aliens do in their everyday lives.

    Trump's complete surrender is particularly risible since I'd heard they were debating whether to allow, for prudential reasons, foreign students already here to stay, even if all classes were online, but apply the rule (which has been on the books for years) only to new students.

    F-1 visas have only ever been rewarded to foreign students taking in-person classes. Now, thanks to a Trump order, foreign students taking online-only classes can secure those visas.
