Pennsylvania joins other states in suing to stop new student visa rule

Pennsylvania has joined 16 other states and Washington D.C. in suing the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement over a new policy.

The lawsuit filed Monday comes a week after ICE made sudden changes to its rules for F-1 and M1 visas, which international students use to attend college in the United States. Under the “Temporary Final Rule”, they could lose their visas if all their fall classes moved online — a measure some universities have decided to take to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
