Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is suing the Trump administration in federal court over a move to strip international students of their visas if their coursework is entirely online when classes resume in the fall.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Boston against the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, seeks a temporary restraining order against the policy, which was announced Monday. The lawsuit also seeks an order vacating the policy and a declaration that it is unlawful.
ICE announced Monday that “it was rescinding its COVID-19 exemption for international students, requiring all students on F-1 visas whose university curricula are entirely online to depart the country, and barring any such students currently outside the United States from entering or re-entering the United States,” the lawsuit said.
