UPDATE 7/11/20: Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey will be joining us for the rally! Healey is preparing to sue the Trump administration: "Massachusetts is home to thousands of international students who should not fear deportation or be forced to put their health and safety at risk in order to advance their education. This decision from ICE is cruel, it's illegal, and we will sue to stop it."


---------------------------------------------------------------


On Monday July 6, ICE rescinded the temporary exemption and issued new guidance in which they announced their intent to bar students on F-1 (and M-1) visas to participate fully in online education for the Fall 2020 semester. There are five thousand F1 visa holders at Harvard University, and thousands more in the Boston area. Harvard, MIT and a host of other universities as well as our Attorney General Maura Healy have started legal proceedings.


The student ban must be stopped. That's why we're coming together on Monday July 13 at 12pm in front the State House to say #NoStudentBan and #NoDeportations. We will lift up the voices of allies and international students. We hope you join us. This event is being co-hosted by the International Scholars Working Group at Harvard Graduate Students Union - UAW and Graduate Employees of Northeastern University - UAW.
