The information provided below talks in detail about THE LAW SUIT BETWEEN UNIVERSITIES AND US GOVERNMENT and its eventualities
FACTS OF THE LAW SUIT BETWEEN UNIVERSITIES AND US GOVERNMENT
- The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a new policy on 6 July 2020 for the immigrant students studying in fall 2020.
- This policy states for the students to return to their home country if the university will conduct online classes. In layman’s terms, the U.S. government has asked international students to leave the United States of America.
- Prestigious Universities like Harvard, MIT, Yale, etc. have sued the US government over this deportation policy.
BASIS OF THE LAW SUIT
- The basis for their suit is that it goes against the Administrative Procedures Act and is arbitrary.
- The President of Harvard, Lawrence Bacow said in an interview that “We believe that the ICE order is bad public policy, and we believe that it is illegal.”
- On March 13, 2020, President Trump declared National Emergency, thereafter, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program, a division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), issued guidelines on online coursework to make it convenient for international students to continue their studies.
- On July 8, 2020, Harvard and MIT filed suit against the U.S. District Court in Boston seeking temporary restraining the July 6, 2020 order
- Even though the National Emergency has not been revoked, apparently, the March 13, 2020 order is also not revoked then how can the ICE pass another such order in between the pandemic?
