NEWS-Opposition to the changed policy regarding international students in America

New York, Agencies. Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have reached the court against the changed policy regarding international students in America. Both institutions have urged the federal court to impose a temporary moratorium on the order of the Trump administration. Let us know that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Monday that those foreign students will have to leave the country or face the risk of being deported, whose universities will conduct fully online classes this semester due to the epidemic.

"We, along with MIT, have filed a petition in the US District Court in Boston," Harvard President Laurence Bacau said in an email to staff and students of the institute. In the petition, we have asked the court to temporarily stop the decision of the Trump administration. We will take up this matter with full seriousness in the court, so that international students do not have to leave the country. Please tell that Harvard has already announced to conduct all classes online during the remaining academic session.

Bakau said that no notice was issued before this order was implemented. It seems that it has been deliberately designed to put pressure on the college and the university, so that they are forced to open educational institutions for direct education.

American lawmakers criticized

Homeland Security Committee Chairman and Member of Parliament Benny Thompson and Facilitation and Operations Subcommittee Kathleen Rice said in a joint statement that the new policy would not only harm the economy, but would also harm American educational institutions. Stanford Institute President Mark Tessier Lavigne said the decision would create difficulty for international students. On the other hand, the Ministry of External Affairs termed the decision as temporary and said that under the new policy, in some cases online and personal presence will be allowed to study.
