President Trump’s Attempt to Remove International Students is Hypocritical to Past Tweets
Not only does the University of Alabama have 1800 international student, the US has over a million international students in total, which universities profit is $4.2 Billion yearly.
I'm the type of person who sticks by his guns and word. But I won't let what President Trump said go unaccounted for. Last week he announced that he wouldn't allow international students to stay in the States in retaliation of the annex of American citizens in different countries that are ACTUALLY ON LOCKDOWN.
Here is what he mandated and backed up in regards to that issue through the HLS website:
- Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter 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.
- Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools operating under normal in-person classes are bound by existing federal regulations. Eligible F students may take a maximum of one class or three credit hours online.
- Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools adopting a hybrid model—that is, a mixture of online and in person classes—will be allowed to take more than one class or three credit hours online. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” certifying that the program is not entirely online, that the student is not taking an entirely online course load this semester, and that the student is taking the minimum number of online classes required to make normal progress in their degree program. The above exemptions do not apply to F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees, who are not permitted to enroll in any online courses.
Pretty low and heartbreaking stuff, you know what's ironic though? Back in 2015 he had a very intelligent tweet, I'll leave it right here:
Trump is a flip-flopper. Maybe in five years he'll flop to become a democrat, who knows!
