Two of America's top universities, Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, won a significant victory against the Trump administration on Tuesday after Trump decided to deport all international college students who opted for online-only courses this fall. On July 6th, Trump announced that his administration would send back all the foreign students who prefer online courses. The decision attracted a wide range of criticism not only from the Americans but only from the political and educational enthusiasts from different countries across the world. It was followed by a surge of lawsuits and condemnations from various states, schools, labor unions, and tech giants. The decision reversal is one of the stunning retreats for Trump's administration, which had a long history of revoking the policies.
The condemnation list also included the powerful non-profit organization US Chamber of Commerce, which later announced that "it's pleased about the revocation of the ill-conceived policy by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which determines the future of thousands of international students in the United States." Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University sued both the DHS and Immigration and Customs Enforcement after the government decided to tighten the restrictions for international students. Johns Hopkins University and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra also joined the bandwagon and filed separate lawsuits to halt the policy. The suing list includes many other parties like New York Attorney General Tish James, the District of Columbia, Seventeen other state administrations, an amalgamation of twenty small and large universities in the western US. Tech giants Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and the American Federation of Teachers and Service Employees International Union also supported the lawsuit by the premier Universities.
Congratulatory messages poured in after the government decided to back off on their worrisome policy. "This decision is an extremely significant move for international students and colleges," said Miriam Feldblum, the executive director of the Presidents' Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration. President of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Peter McPherson, said - "The United States must and should continue to clarify that it welcomes all the international students and recognizes their enormous contributions to our country at large." Harvard and MIT asserted that their students and college administration would face irreparable injury if the government didn't revoke its decision. With the withdrawal of the policy, international students can continue to live in the United States as per the previous standards.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
