L. Rafael Reif, President, Massachusetts Institute of Technology writes: What gives our country this advantage? Their explanation surprised me. Because the U.S. is heterogeneous, these leaders told me, it draws the best and brightest from all over the world to work and create together. This, they said, was much more difficult for China.

Lara Tiedes, President, Scripps College writes: We are choosing to make data- and values-based decisions informed by the critical public health situation in Los Angeles and the country, and to prioritize the health of our faculty, staff students, and the broader community that surrounds us. Although there are pressures to invite students back to campus, we are choosing not to put members of our communities (both those who comprise our campuses, and those around us) at increased risk for the sake of finances, reputation, or conformity.

The Cruelty of ICE’s Guidance for International Students

The Cruelty of ICE’s Guidance for International Students

July 09, 2020

Brian Rosenberg, President Emeritus, Macalester College writes: The latest act of malignity is the decision on Monday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that international students whose colleges are offering courses exclusively online as a consequence of the pandemic will not be issued student visas or otherwise be allowed to enter or remain in the United States. "Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings."
