CA to sue Trump administration over new international student visa rules

first_imgCalifornia Attorney General Xavier Becerra and top education leaders in the state announced Thursday that California was suing the Trump administration in an attempt to stop a new policy that would force international students to leave the country if their schools only offered online classes.Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Monday that students on F-1 and M-1 visas would either need to leave the country or transfer to a school where in-person classes were taking place or else face deportation.According to a NBC News report,there were more than 40,000 international undergraduate and graduate students during the 2019 fall semester.In a press release, Becerra said “Shame on the Trump Administration for risking not only the education opportunities for students who earned the chance to go to college, but now their health and well-being as well,”… “Today, President Trump appears set to do just that — amidst a global pandemic of historic proportions. Not on our watch.”California is the first state to file a lawsuit against the directive. You can view the full lawsuit here.Harvard and MIT filed lawsuits against the administration earlier this week.According to NAFSA: Association of International Educators, international students contributed $41 billion to the U.S. GDP during the 2018-19 school year.last_img read more

Exclusive – Wenger will help Welbeck emulate Henry, claims ex-Arsenal striker

first_imgFormer Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes Danny Welbeck can emulate Gunners great Thierry Henry.The Frenchman arrived in north London with a point to prove, having previously been used in a wide role by Serie A giants Juventus, and went on to become a legend at the club.Welbeck suffered a similar fate at Manchester United and Campbell claims Arsene Wenger can bring the best out of the 23-year-old – just like he did with Henry.“I do see similarities between Welbeck and Henry,” he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “Thierry Henry was nowhere near the finished article when he arrived at Arsenal, and just look what happened to his game. It was elevated to the highest level.“I would like to think Danny Welbeck can get up to those heights, there or thereabouts anyway.“Arsene Wenger is very good at developing players and Welbeck is a willing learner. He has everything.“He is only going to get better because his confidence is going to grow. Somebody like Welbeck, with his skill set, is going to be a very dangerous striker in the Premier League.”last_img read more
