Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The number of international students entering US colleges and universities has fallen for the second year in a row, a nonprofit group said on Tuesday, amid efforts by the Trump administration to tighten restrictions on foreigners studying in the United States.

A strong dollar has made US college tuition relatively more expensive, Canadian and European universities are competing fiercely for the same students and headlines about mass shootings also may have deterred some students, said Allan Goodman, president of IIE.

"Everything matters from safety, to cost, to perhaps perceptions of visa policy," Goodman said. "We're not hearing that students feel they can't come here. We're hearing that they have choices. We're hearing that there's competition from other countries."

International students have become an important funding source for American colleges as traditional revenue sources, such as state funding, come under pressure.

Similar to previous years, the largest numbers of students came from China, India and South Korea, which together made up 56.1 per cent of all international students.

Some immigration policy experts and college administrators attribute the decline to the Trump administration's drive to restrict immigration and an overall sense of a U.S. political climate that is hostile to immigrants and foreigners.

"It is not a welcoming environment," said Doug Rand, a former White House official working on immigration issues during the Obama administration.

He noted that Trump has moved to restrict the issuance of skilled-worker visas and permanent residency, which many incoming students may apply for in the future.

"It's an act of willful ignorance to suggest that our immigration policies aren't having a direct impact on foreign student enrollment," Rand said.

"We already had one foreign student become President."

Really? Let's see how in touch with reality you are.

Name one.

Once they (the house) forces Trumps taxes, then we can force a certain Presidents school records to show he was applying as a foreign student. The liberals will open the door...

Whatabout Obama? What do Humpy's taxes have to do with Obama's school records?

You can't force Obama to release any PII he does not want to release. He is not public office.

Unless he ends up in court. But, he won't as he is not a criminal like Humpy.

Soooo... Good luck with continuing to support that deplorable lie.

Remember when you used to pretend to be black so you could spout racism without being called racist?

It must have been a big relief for you when trump was elected and you were all allowed to come out of the closet.

And you'd act like defrauding the american people of hundreds of millions in taxes is on par with defrauding a college with a single admissions slot.

Yeah!

Cause boaz will tell you how Democrats will never, ever win anything again for 20 generations or 100 years... and that will show you just how tough he is, SunTzuMeow!

Hey, boaz, why not tell SunTzuMeow about how it wasn't Trump and the conservatives pushing the (now defunct) "caravan" story.

That'll show just how tough you are for sure!

Boaz and Humpy are both afraid to death of a bunch of homeless, pennyless refugees.

When America was Great we would send social workers and food and medical aid to helpless refugees.

Now we send the Army to shoot at them.

Like that's gonna Make America Great.

It is all quite legal:

26 U.S. Code § 6103 - Confidentiality and disclosure of returns and return information

(f) Disclosure to Committees of Congress

(1) Committee on Ways and Means, Committee on Finance, and Joint Committee on Taxation

Upon written request from the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, the chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request...

"...then we can force a certain Presidents school records to show he was applying as a foreign student."

"We"? You sound like Trump threatening Senate "investigations" if the House exercises its oversight responsibilities.

So, got a law that says PII can be "forced"?

Would less foreign students result in more citizens being accepted, or are those spots slotted, generally?
