Trump Administration to Cancel Visas for Thousands of Chinese Graduate Students

HeadlineMay 29, 2020

The Trump administration has announced plans to cancel the visas of thousands of Chinese graduate students studying in the United States. The move would impact students who have studied at schools that have links to the Chinese military. Republican lawmakers are also proposing to bar all Chinese graduate students from studying science or technology in the United States. Many educators have warned the moves could lead to a new Red Scare on American campuses. Meanwhile, Britain is considering offering a path to citizenship for over 300,000 residents of Hong Kong if China moves ahead with implementing a new national security law on the former British colony.
