U.S. asks more than one million international students taking fully online courses to leave or risk deportation

(NNP) The United States Department of Homeland Security has added to the headache of international students hit hard by the ongoing pandemic by asking those whose institutions have gone fully online due to coronavirus concerns to leave the country and take their courses from their home countries. The new ruling exempts those who are taking in-person courses.

The department has advised students affected to either leave or transfer to institutions offering in-person courses or risk deportation. This is believed to be part of the effort by the Trump administration to force colleges and universities to open their campuses for in-person instructions in a bid to restart the economy and society leading to the November elections.

More than one million international students are impacted by this ruling that is expected to be criticized by educational institutions across the country as it puts students and faculty at risk of contracting the virus. The ruling will mean that many international students will have to break existing contracts such as rental agreements and leave jobs, a move that may adversely impact the economy at a time when it is recovering from the pandemic related work stoppage.
