An Open Letter to Lawmakers – Repeal the F1/M1 visa policy (7/9/2020)

The following document, “Open Letter to Repeal the ICE policy to refuse visas for online students during COVID” is an effort led by the Arizona Science Policy Network with help from members of the American Geophysical Union. The text is aimed to convince lawmakers and citizens of the cruelty and stupidity of the referenced decision by ICE to disqualify international student from F1/M1 visa status if their university moves to an online-only model during the COVID-19 pandemic. We provide these letters here to serve as both examples of what individuals/groups can write to sway decision makers, as well as practical texts that you can tailor to fit your community and audience regarding this specific issue. If you have questions or would like guidance, email the Arizona Science Policy Network at
