The Trump administration has announced new rules beginning June 11 to limit Chinese student visas in STEM fields to as little as a single year. Previously, most visas were issued for the five year maximum.
Since Trump was elected, Chinese graduate students around the country have been experiencing delays renewing visas, leading to disruptions in work and school schedules.
Many members of our Union will be affected by this unfair and xenophobic policy, and it is important to stop it. In coordination with UAW local unions for student workers and postdocs at the University of California, we are starting a petition to President Cauce asking her and other University presidents around the country to communicate the harmful impacts of this policy to our state congressional delegation and to the Trump administration.
