NOW: Notre Dame responds to proposed deportation policy of foreign students

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame is responding to President Trump’s proposal to deport foreign college students, if classes are only offered online this fall.

Notre Dame President, Father John Jenkins expressed his concerns about the government’s “inhospitable” and “hostile” approach to the acting secretary of homeland security, Chad Wolf.

“These students are an essential part of our campus community. They make lifelong friends here. They become future colleagues of faculty and alumni. We embrace our visitors. We don’t chase them away,” Jenkins said.

The requirement from the US Immigration customs is that at least some in-person education must take place for their visa to be granted and to remain in the US.
