Politics of Study Abroad

Hosting international students by U.S. institutions has been politicized through the actions of the Trump administration, first with the ban on students from Islamic countries and now the considerations advocated by Stephen Miller to ban all Chinese students. Studying abroad is also influenced by politics in the example of faculty declining to support U.S. students' desire to study in Israel. At issue is the allegation that immigration officials discriminate in granting visas for students to study in Israel, specifically "... students of Palestinian, Middle Eastern, and Muslim background, who attempt to travel to Israel and the Palestinian territories."
