In their October 14, 2020 full council meeting, The Council of Graduate Students (COGS) passed, by unanimous vote, a statement condemning the proposed DHS F/J Visas Policy. The statement was unanimously approved by the COGS Full Council in response to the proposed rule: “Establishing a Fixed Time Period of Admission and an Extension of Stay Procedure for Nonimmigrant Academic Students, Exchange Visitors, and Representatives of Foreign Information Media” (Federal Register Number 2020-20845). It will be submitted as a public comment and distributed to the MSU congressional delegation.
