Harvard and MIT sue over US visa ruling

Coronavirus: Harvard and MIT sue over US visa ruling - BBC News

Two elite US universities are suing immigration services over a decision to withdraw visas from foreign students whose courses move fully online.

Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology filed the lawsuit against Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The lawsuit argues that ICE’s move “proceeded without any indication of having considered the health of students, faculty, university staff, or communities” and leaves “hundreds of thousands of international students with no educational options within the United States”.

Harvard President Lawrence Bacow said: “We believe that the ICE order is bad public policy, and we believe that it is illegal.”
