"INSIGHT: Reversal on Trump’s Student Visa Curbs Exposes Flawed Policy Efforts" - by Professors Ediberto Román and Carrie Rosenbaum
Professors Ediberto Román (Florida International University School of Law) and Carrie Rosenbaum (UC-Berkley, Golden Gate) were ready to challenge the Trump Administration's now rescinded policy to cancel student visas of international students who only took online classes. In a Bloomberg op-ed entitled "INSIGHT: Reversal on Trump’s Student Visa Curbs Exposes Flawed Policy Efforts", they argued that this policy had many procedural flaws and particularly failed to follow the procedures laid out in the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). The Trump Administration withdrew the policy, perhaps due to the astuteness of these arguments.
