ICE recently announced a policy that would require international students to leave the country if they do not take any in-person classes this fall term. This would apply even if the university is fully online this fall or if the university transitions to an online model in the middle of the semester. On July 7, top universities including Harvard, Columbia, and Stanford have denounced the policy, while also assuring international students that they will work to create a plan that will allow them to continue their studies in America “without fear.” On July 8, Harvard and MIT filed suit in federal court, seeking to block the policy and calling ICE’s decision “arbitrary and capricious.”
