NewsFlash! Harvard and MIT Sue ICE to Block Rule Requiring F-1 Students Attend In-Person Classes

Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have filed a lawsuit against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in an effort to prevent the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) from ending the temporary rule that allows schools to have F-1 and M-1 students take courses exclusively online. Per the lawsuit, “ICE’s action proceeded without any indication of having considered the health of students, faculty, university staff, or communities.” The plaintiffs allege that ICE is essentially forcing universities to reopen in-person classes, creating chaos for the schools and foreign national students.
