Higher-Ed Groups Warn Against Visa Restrictions for Chinese Students
May 31, 2018
Two higher-education associations released statements on Wednesday opposing the U.S. State Department’s move to limit the length of student visas for some Chinese citizens. The planned directive, as reported by news outlets such as Bloomberg News and The New York Times, means that the time allotted in the United States would be reduced for some Chinese citizens, and would be applied on an individual basis. The changes were part of a White House attempt to combat the alleged theft of American intellectual property by China.
