Lawsuit Filed Against Trump Administration Over Rule That Strips International Student Visas

Dear Friends, Family, and Clients,

On Monday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released guidelines prohibiting international students from remaining in the U.S. if their coursework is entirely online when classes resume in the fall. While the rules always prohibited online-only courses for international students, ICE relaxed them earlier this year to allow online study during the COVID-19 closures. Although the pandemic is still an issue, the agency is reverting back to the old rule and said that those who violate the rules “may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.”

On July 8th, 2020, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration’s plan to require in-person classes for foreign students. The lawsuit seeks a temporary restraining order against the policy, an order vacating the policy, and a declaration that it is unlawful while the country is still in the midst of a pandemic.

Our team at PPID fully supports the legal rights of international students seeking a better future through education in the United States. We have helped countless students from around the world, and we will continue to fight for international students to be here.

Demanda Presentada Contra la Administracion Trump Sombre la Regla que Elimina Visas de Estudiantes Internacionales

 

Estimados amigos, familiares y clientes,

El lunes, el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas de EE. UU. (ICE) publicó pautas que prohíben a los estudiantes internacionales permanecer en los EE. UU. si sus cursos cuando las clases se reanuden en el otoño serán completamente en línea. Aunque las reglas siempre prohibieron los cursos solo en línea para estudiantes internacionales, ICE los relajó a principios de este año para permitir el estudio en línea durante los cierres de COVID-19. Aunque la pandemia sigue siendo un problema, la agencia está volviendo a la antigua regla y dijo que aquellos que violen las reglas “pueden enfrentar consecuencias de inmigración que incluyen, entre otras, el inicio de los procedimientos de expulsión.”

El 8 de julio de 2020, Harvard y el Instituto de Tecnología de Massachusetts (M.I.T.) presentaron una demanda contra el plan de la Administración Trump de exigir clases en persona para estudiantes extranjeros. La demanda busca una orden de restricción temporal contra la política, una orden que anule la política y una declaración de que esta política es ilegal mientras el país todavía está en medio de una pandemia.

Nuestro equipo en PPID respalda plenamente los derechos legales de los estudiantes internacionales que buscan un futuro mejor a través de la educación en los Estados Unidos. Hemos ayudado a innumerables estudiantes de todo el mundo y seguiremos luchando para que los estudiantes internacionales permanezcan aquí.
