Trump Administration Rescinds Student Visa Order

trump visa rules

After heavy protests and court intervention, the Trump administration has decided that it will not impose any kind of visa ban on foreign students doing online classes. On July 6, the US had announced the withdrawal of student visas from students whose classes were being held only on the online model due to Corona.

Google, Facebook Opposed the Visa Policy

In the US, 17 states of the country had filed a lawsuit against it, amid strong criticism of the Trump administration’s decision to ban foreign students’ visas due to online classes. The lawsuit was also endorsed by more than a dozen top US technology companies, including Google, Facebook and Microsoft, and announced their involvement in the lawsuit.

More than 60 Universities Opposed New Visa Policy

The lawsuit was also filed by attorney generals from the states of Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin. More than 60 universities, along with Harvard University and MIT, moved the court to protest against the new visa policy.

17 US states filed a lawsuit citing the argument that the Trump administration’s new rules violate guidelines issued on March 13 during a health emergency (epidemic) in the country. Under these rules, schools and colleges, along with other institutions, were given the exemption that F-1 or M-1 visa holders could class online during the epidemic. The lawsuit filed in the court said that this decision of the Trump administration will also affect the country financially, because now foreign students come to America and after studying they work here in many fields. This decision will weaken the economy.
