ASPB’s Response to Proposed DHS Rulemaking on Student Visas

On behalf of the thousands of members of the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), we write to express our opposition to the proposal titled “Establishing a Fixed Time Period of Admission and an Extension of Stay Procedure for Nonimmigrant Academic Students, Exchange Visitors, and Representatives of Foreign Information Media.” (DHS Docket No. ICEB2019-0006). This proposed rule will result in negative long-term impacts on the broader U.S. scientific enterprise, sending a signal that the United States is no longer open to international scholars and the many benefits that they bring to the nation. Read the letter.
