Trump administration drops directive on international students and online courses

Breaking: The government has backed down on its directive disallowing international students from participating in online-only course loads in response to lawsuits filed by Harvard and MIT.

The lawsuit argued the directive put universities "in the untenable situation" of either moving forward with online coursework at the expense of the welfare of their international students -- "or to attempt, with just weeks before classes resume, to provide in-person education despite the grave risk to public health and safety that such a change would entail."

Agreement to rescind policy to prohibit international students in the U.S. from taking a fully online course load was made to resolve lawsuit filed by Harvard and MIT.

While Hollywood depicts INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) as having seemingly limitless authority and resources to pursue international terrorists and drug cartels, the group in reality is not a law enforcement agency and does not have the power to make arrests.

Join Thomas Ragland of Clark Hill and Sandra Grossman and Meg Hobbins of Grossman Young & Hammond for a webinar as they introduce a niche practice developed to provide advice and counsel to foreign nationals in the U.S. who have been targeted by the Department of Homeland Security because of INTERPOL.

The webinar will benefit immigration attorneys, especially those with international law, human rights, or corporate practices, as the presenting firms will provide an overview of INTERPOL Red Notices. Attorneys will explain the challenges created by the U.S. immigration system and provide examples of legal strategies previously used in INTERPOL cases, as well as opportunities for reform.

Breaking News: In-State Tuition for VA Students Regardless of Immigration Status

Breaking News: Students will soon be able to pay in-state tuition at Virginia universities regardless of immigration status. Currently, undocumented students, and some with pending applications for legal status, do not qualify for in-state tuition. The higher out-of-state tuition often makes college unaffordable for these students, many of whom spent most of their lives in the state. Today the VA legislature announced, effective July 1, students can establish domicile in VA regardless of immigration status if they meet four requirements. Adriana Robinson elaborates on this great news from The Commonwealth of Virginia.

Lawsuit says CARES Act Discriminates against Undocumented Immigrants

COVID-19 FAQ: GYH Attorney Elana Gold sheds light on a new lawsuit challenging part of the Coronavirus aid package on the basis that it discriminates against undocumented parents and their families. Typically, under the aid package, parents qualify for $500 per dependent. However, the CARES Act prohibits payments to parents who file taxes using ITINs, which generally are used by undocumented immigrants, regardless of whether the children are themselves U.S. citizens. We support the argument of Georgetown Law's Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP), and CASA that Federal aid should be shared with all taxpayers regardless of immigration status.

Daily COVID-19 FAQ: Executive Order "Suspension temporaire de l'immigration aux États-Unis"

Daily COVID-19 FAQ: Executive Order "Suspension temporaire de l'immigration aux États-Unis"

Le lundi 20 avril 2020, Donald Trump a tweeté qu'il « signerait un décret présidentiel pour suspendre temporairement l'immigration aux États-Unis ! », ce qui a provoqué consternation et confusion chez les immigrants et leurs familles, les entreprises américaines et le barreau américain de l’immigration. Le 23 avril, Monsieur Trump a rendu son décret. Cette vidéo est la version française, donnée par Aurore Le Roy de la Chohinière de l’allocution des avocates associées de Grossman Young & Hammond, Sandra Grossman et Becki Young. Nous analysons le champ d’application du décret, pourquoi ce décret ne rend pas la situation plus sûre ou renforce l’économie américaine, et la façon dont il attise le feu des anti-immigrants et constitue une distraction à peine voilée du manque de leadership efficace pour réellement combattre le coronavirus.

Daily COVID-19 FAQ: Trump's executive order "temporarily suspending immigration into the US."

Daily COVID-19 FAQ: Trump's executive order "temporarily suspending immigration into the US."

On Monday, April 20, 2020, Donald Trump tweeted that he would be “signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!" This caused great consternation and confusion among immigrants and their families, US businesses, and the immigration bar. On April 23rd, Mr. Trump issued his Order. GYH Managing Partners Sandra Grossman and Becki Young break it down and explain who it does and does not cover, how it does nothing to make us safer or strengthen the economy, and how it is another log on the anti-immigrant fire and a thinly-veiled distraction from the lack of effective leadership to actually combat the Coronavirus.
