Rutgers Joins Harvard, MIT Lawsuit Against New ICE Rules

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — On Friday, Rutgers University announced they are joining a lawsuit filed by Harvard University and MIT against ICE and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Rutgers, Harvard and MIT are fighting brand-new guidelines from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), as the agency announced just this past Monday it would deny visas to international college students who take online-only courses this fall.

Harvard and MIT filed the the suit in federal court in Boston Wednesday. They are seeking a temporary restraining order. A first hearing will be Tuesday.
