Web Desk: Administration of US president Donald Trump has recently issued a draft policy in which they proposed an idea of throwing out the overstaying students. The policy will be implemented from August 9 and also proposed to change the methodology of computing ‘unlawful presence days’ or stay in the US post their visa tenure.
The unlawful presence days will be computed starting from the day the students failed to maintain their immigration status, the day when student stop pursuing their course of study, engage in unauthorized activity or complete their program and authorized graced period.
Under this law, a student can be barred from entering or staying in the US or obtaining permanent residency. Moreover, students who have accumulated more than 180 days of unlawful presence during a single stay, may be subjected to three to ten years bar from re-entering the US.
This policy can be a hurdle for those students who fall out of status and wish to apply for a visa or to change their status to that of a US permanent resident.
