In a message to the Princeton community on Wednesday, July 8, President Eisgruber reaffirmed the University’s support for our international students and criticized the change in policy affecting international students throughout the country that was announced July 6 by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). President Eisgruber wrote, “ICE’s disruptive and ill-defined policy changes, which appeared without warning or prior discussion, come in the midst of a public health crisis that has required Princeton and other universities to do much of their teaching remotely. They also come during a period when the United States has interrupted visa processing and closed its borders to many countries, making it impossible for many international students to reach the United States to receive in-person instruction when it is available.” https://bit.ly/3j1Fa0K
