International Educators Welcome Ruling on International Student 'Unlawful Presence' Policy

On February 6, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina issued a permanent nationwide injunction blocking the August 8, 2018, U.S. Customs and Immigrations Services (USCIS) policy memo that sought to change how days of unlawful presence are counted following a violation of F, M, or J nonimmigrant status. Pieces from Forbes and the PIE News explore the practical implications of the decision and reaction from the field of international education.

USCIS has also placed a proposed rule item on its regulatory agenda. Visit NAFSA's resource page on this topic for more information.
