Re: 1 million International Students in the US to be sent home?

This is another unpleasant and disorienting feature of life in a pandemic world. The USA is really a study in paradox as it relates to dealing with covid19.......on the one hand no face mask mandate from federal authorities but mandate given to ICE as it relates to deportation of students. USA covid...

The undisputable fact is that the Govt hasn't constr...

Re: Coronavirus - COVID-19 - 117 cases, 8 deaths, 109 discharged in T&T
