On May 29, President Trump issued a presidential proclamation limiting the issuance of visas to some graduate students from China. The proclamation bars the entry of or issuance of visas to Chinese students in F or J status in graduate level programs, or who are involved in the “strategy” to divert technology to the Chinese military. The proclamation also calls on the State Department to consider revoking visas. There are currently 84,480 Chinese students in graduate-level science and engineering programs in the U.S.
