Maryland joins lawsuit against new visa rules for international students

Maryland has joined a coalition of 18 states in filing a lawsuit to stop a new federal rule that threatens to bar hundreds of thousands of international students from studying in the United States, the state’s attorney general announced Monday.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, challenges what the attorneys general call the federal government’s “cruel, abrupt and unlawful action to expel international students amidst the pandemic that has wrought death and disruption across the United States.” [WBAL]
