Along with these states, the District of Columbia also filed a lawsuit, stating that this decision is unlawful. This lawsuit filed in the US District Court in Massachusets says that this decision should be reversed
This new policy also affects the students who are taking non-online classes as well. This prohibits such students to not take more than one class. Also, it prohibits taking three credit hours online to stay in the country.

The Massachusets Attorney General says that Trump didn’t even try to explain this senseless change in the policy. This new policy also brings a dilemma for schools to select between keeping their international students enrolled or protecting the campus
