Harvard, MIT sue Donald Trump over student visa issue

U.S. President Donald Trump has been sued by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT) over the latest change by his administration where it said international students in the U.S. would return to their home countries if their colleges have agreed to perform the upcoming semester online.

The two leading educational institutions have said they are in favor of foreign students studying in the United States. The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Monday that foreign students would not be allowed to stay in the country if their universities offer online courses this autumn semester.

In a statement, the Harvard University said this decision came down without any notice and “its cruelty surpassed only by its recklessness”.
