5000 foreign students will be affected

John Hopkins University filed a lawsuit in federal court on Friday, stating that the Trump administration’s decision would affect about 5,000 foreign students pursuing online education at the university. The university also said that ‘the new rule of sending foreign students who do not enroll in individual classes back to their country’ has dealt a ‘sudden and unexpected’ blow to John Hopkins.

Therefore, the university, in its complaint filed in the district court of Washington, requested a temporary restraining order on the proposal for new visa rules. University President Ronald J. Daniels called the administration’s decision unnecessary, ruthless and hostile.
