As reported on Monday, July 6 (via NPR):

Foreign students attending U.S. colleges that will operate entirely online this fall semester cannot remain in the country to do so, according to new regulations released Monday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Aside from following the Trump administration standard MO of “unnecessarily cruel,” this was also a targeted blow at “liberal” institutions that rely heavily on tuition fees from foreign students to subsidize other educational costs. Which is part of the reason that schools like Harvard and MIT are suing over the move. Also from NPR:

Universities support MIT and Harvard in legal action against ICE visa policy

After MIT and Harvard University led the way on Wednesday, a growing number of colleges and universities around the country have begun or are actively planning to take legal action against a surprise policy issued by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security. The new policy would have the effect of banning any foreign student with an F-1 student visa from entering the U.S., or from remaining in the country, if their classes were fully online as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

How Universities Are Planning to Reopen Amid the Pandemic

Everyone’s doing something a little bit different.
International college students may be forced to leave US

ICE announces that visas will be withdrawn from international students if all their classes are held online.
ICE to Deny Foreign Student Visas for Colleges Teaching Online This Fall

Harvard has said the entire 2020–21 academic year will be taught online.
Harvard Is Right to Keep Charging Full Tuition

By making itself look absurd, Harvard is giving the rest of higher ed a little more breathing room.
