AADR Statement on Administration’s Decision to Rescind ICE Policy Barring International Students Taking Online Courses

0 931

The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) is pleased to learn of the administration’s decision to walk back a new policy that would have required international students taking classes exclusively online courses in the fall 2020 semester to transfer or leave the country. This was an important and necessary step by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Alexandria, Va., USA – The American Association for Dental Research and 15 other scientific societies joined the American Physical Society amicus brief pledging support for the lawsuit brought by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to block new U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) visa rules that bar international students taking online-only courses from residing in the United States.

AADR Opposes SEVP Modifications to Temporary Exemptions for Nonimmigrant Students

0 595

Alexandria, Va., USA  The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) strongly condemns the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) modifications to temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes during the fall 2020 semester, announced on July 6, 2020. Among the modifications is that nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating online may not remain in the United States. This misguided policy—released amid a global pandemic—has consequences that negatively impact students, academic institutions, communities, the scientific enterprise, and the U.S. economy.
