Recently, ICE has stated that they will be sending all international students back to their home country if they do not have classes in person.

"In a news release Monday, ICE said that students who fall under certain visas "may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States," adding, "The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States.""

They have decided that international students must attend classes in person, or risk deportation. Virginia Commonwealth University prides itself on diversity and inclusion, and should be doing everything in their power to keep international students from either choosing between their health or education. This choice is both harmful, inhumane, and apathetic. We hope President Rao realized how important and urgent this matter is and we hope to see the change we need.
