Christian groups oppose ICE rule on international students

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Leaders of 12 Christian organizations on Friday urged the Trump administration to rescind a policy requiring international students to leave the U.S. or transfer if their colleges hold classes entirely online this fall, saying it "falls short of American ideals." In a letter to Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, shared with The Associated Press, the leaders wrote that the policy "robs our country of the significant contribution" international students make to their colleges on both a personal and economic level. It "lacks compassion" and "violates tenets of our faith," the letter continued, citing specific Biblical passages.
