By - Jul 13th, 2020 12:27 pm

MADISON, Wis.—Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul today was among 18 attorneys general that sued U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) over rules related to international students.

UW System President Tommy Thompson:

“International students are welcomed here at the UW System. We fully support the Attorney General’s action today joining the lawsuit challenging the ICE rules regarding international students. While we provided background for the lawsuit, our belief is that our universities’ planned hybrid model of teaching delivery during the fall 2020 semester ensures our compliance with the rules if they are upheld.”

UW System Regent President Andrew S. Petersen:

“The value of international students to our universities extends beyond the financial and research support they provide Wisconsin. Their presence on UW System universities contributes to the learning opportunities and cultural enrichment provided to all of our students.”
