Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich wrote an op-ed opposing President Trump's recent decision to bar international students from returning to the United States in the fall if their universities are not fully reopen. "If Donald Trump has his way, Harvard's 5,000 international students will either be deported or denied entry for the fall semester, not because they are threatening anyone but because President Trump has decided to use them as pawns to force universities to open up for in-person classes," she wrote.
