What you might not know about ICE’s announcement regarding international students and online instruction

You likely already have learned that ICE will require international students to leave the country or transfer to another college or university if their current school offers online-only instruction this fall.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says the directive is more onerous than you might think.

Of particular concern is a stipulation saying international students won’t be exempt from the rules even if an outbreak forces their schools to move online during the fall semester.

In effect, the federal government is telling America’s college and university leaders that coronavirus is no big deal, and it doesn’t warrant suspending face-to-face instruction.
