WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of international students entering U.S. 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.

New enrollments for the 2017-18 school year slumped 6.6 percent compared with the previous year, according to an annual survey released by the Institute of International Education. That follows a 3.3 percent decline in new international students tallied in the 2016-17 academic year.
===========================================================
Changes in visa & immigration policy seem to be the main deterrents. Unfortunately, Asian students tend to be the brightest & the highest achievers in higher education, which will negatively impact future high tech job openings here in the U.S.

Blame Trump.
What’s that supposed to mean? Jared? His wife? His son? His daughter? Why don’t you come in for the big win and pull your head out from the dirt.

So much for "we're only against illegals". Guess they're done with that lie now.

We? I’m a conservative. That has nothing to do with favoring the Republican Party. As opposed to you communists favoring the democrats.

"I only oppose illegals! I'm not against immigrants! What's that? Less legal immigrants? YES! Oh, sorry, was my hood showing?"

Maybe they can offer discounts now to American born students?

I doubt it.

I oppose any who’ve gotten here after 1975. Unless their immediate family member was an active military aid to our forces.

Re-read what I wrote. No one else has a right to be here after 1776 unless they actively fought for this nation.

I don't need a "constitutionalist", nationalist or other nutbag excuse. I hate cowardly hedging.

Fine. Don’t ask me to solve your problems then. Drown, burn or become a pin Cushing on your own dime.

You think anyone cares what someone pushing racist garbage thinks? Don't flatter yourself.

I doubt it.

At public universities foreign students tend to pay tuition rates a good double that of even out of state students. That is in effect subsidizing American born students.

Since we're discussing foreign students, where does citizenship work it's way in here?

And other in the mind of the Left in this country, why is wanting people to obey our laws, hate?

Finally agree with you. Melanoma trump and her parents arrived in America after 1975. Send them back to Slovenia - and her anchor baby Barren.

Not just foreign students. Tourism to America has gone down dramatically since the orange turd became president. Why would anyone visit a **** hole country like trump's AmeriKKKa?

I see. You don't hate immigrants. You just hate illegal immigrants and student immigrants. Sure.

Just stop. Admit you hate immigrants. It's stupid to pretend.
