The Hundred of Thousands of Pakistani Students Studying in the United States of America are on the Verge of Forcing out of the US due to this ongoing Pandemic Situation. The Noval CoronaVirus has already caused much damage to the Educational and Financial Sectors throughout the world. USA Will Force Out Pakistani Students If Their University Classes Go Online.
The American Centre for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) decided that the Fall 2020 Semester Students can not take Full Online Course Load while staying in the US as most of the Universities are opting for Virtual Online Classes for the Fall Semesters!
USA Will Force Out Pakistani Students If Their University Classes Go Online
The Federal Body for the Immigration in the US has already declared that the immigrants, who are studying in ths US have two options. They can either leave the Country or they gotta bear the Deportation if Universities shift to online classes for the Fall Semester 2020.
How Can ICE make such harsh decisions knowing the fact that the Tuition Fee coming from the Foreigner Students play ample role in the Revenue generation for most of the USA Universities? Giving Away two Options to the Students having Academic and Vocational Course Visas are COMPLETELY NONSENSE!
According to ICE
Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States,” US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement.
“Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.” ICE said.
ICE said the State Department “will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will US Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States.”
People are Criticizing this Nonsense!
“The cruelty of this White House knows no bounds,” tweeted Senator Bernie Sanders. “Foreign students are being threatened with a choice: risk your life going to the class-in person or get deported.”
The cruelty of this White House knows no bounds. Foreign students are being threatened with a choice: risk your life going to class in-person or get deported.
We must stand up to Trump’s bigotry. We must keep all our students safe. https://t.co/Q2MvmgJPqV

Since American-born citizens never need to deal with any of the red tape and troubles of immigration, there is very little noise around any of this. Hundreds of thousands of student visa holders have suddenly been left stranded today and there seems to be no outrage.

These ICE Guidelines are Relevant for the F-1 and M-1 Visas Students. According to the Data, the State Department issues a total of 388,839 F visas and 9,518 M visas in fiscal 2019.
Those Students who will be taking Classes in Person are not affected by this unfortunate situation. However, why those students are at fault who are converted to online classes as per the POLICY of their own University!
