On Monday, the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, under a directive from the Trump administration, issued new rules that would revoke visas from some international students throughout the country. Students would be required to enroll in at least one 3-credit course held in person in order to be eligible to stay in the United States next fall. Otherwise, they’d have to leave the country or risk deportation.
For more on the new ruling, and what it means for international students here in Wisconsin, WORT producer Jonah Chester spoke with Glorily Lopez, an attorney practicing U.S. immigration and nationality law at Murphy Desmond S.C. who has been guiding a handful of international students at UW-Madison through the rule changes.
