A lawsuit filed against Columbia University by an employee who says she was fired for refusing to lie to the US Department of Homeland Security has extremely significant implications for Columbia’s foreign-student program. If the allegations are true, Columbia will likely lose the ability to enroll new foreign students for at least a year.
How many other schools engage in this type of unlawful activity is unknown, but DHS should take a closer look at the more than 15,000 campuses it has certified to enroll foreign students to ensure this isn’t happening elsewhere. . . .
