While looking at over a half dozen federal lawsuits and backlash from scores of universities, the White House on Tuesday annulled a rule that would have mandated international students to transfer or leave the country if their schools held classes entirely online because of COVID-19..

The decision came at the beginning of a hearing in a federal lawsuit brought by Harvard University and MIT. U.S. District Judge Allison Burroughs said federal immigration authorities agreed to pull the July 6 directive and “return to the status quo.”

A lawyer representing the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said only that the judge’s characterization was correct.
