ICE Backs Down On International Student Threats

Donald Trump’s administration has been sued by dozens of institutions, reports Gizmodo.

The administration has now backed off its plan to deny entry to international students.

The plan would also require those currently here to leave the country.

That is if institutions switch to online-only instruction during the coronavirus pandemic.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officially reversed the July 6 policy.
