    First time in 10 years FEWER foreign students attending American colleges

    New international student enrollments continue to decline at U.S. universities

    New enrollments of international students fell by 6.6 percent at American universities in academic year 2017-18 compared to the year before, marking the second straight year in declines in new enrollments, according to new data from the annual Open Doors survey.

    Among the findings, institutions in the center of the country -- specifically the South Central region, which includes Texas, and the West North Central region -- are seeing sharper declines than are institutions on the coasts. Less selective institutions are also seeing steeper declines.
    (some could argue they just don’t want to go to a shit hole part of the country)

    There were also declines in the overall number of students coming from America's neighbors, Canada and Mexico, two countries where President Trump is deeply unpopular.

    The first recorded drop in new enrollments came in academic year 2016-17.

    Among the top 10 states hosting international students, there were increases in the total number of international students (including OPT participants) in No. 1 destination California (+3.2 percent), No. 2 New York (+2.4 percent), No. 4 Massachusetts (+8.4 percent), No. 5 Illinois (+2.2 percent), No. 6 Pennsylvania (+1.3 percent) and No. 7 Florida (+1.7 percent), and declines in No. 3 Texas (-0.9 percent), No. 8 Ohio (-2.8 percent), No. 9 Michigan (-0.7 percent) and No. 10 Indiana (-2 percent).

    You can’t attract the best in the world if they’re afraid to come here.

    They can look up the statistics the same as anybody else can and see that right wing terrorism is a major threat to people from overseas.

    Correlation does not equal causation.

    It could just be foreign parents don't want to send their kids to schools more concerned about putting tampons in Men's Rooms than actually educating their children.

    If I was a racist white Republican, I would worry less about black people and more about poor opioid addicted suicidal white dropouts living in Appalachia.

    From your link:

    The Red Gym houses the school's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Campus Center and Multicultural Student Center, among other offices.

    So who do you hate the most? Blacks or Hispanics or gays? There’s got to be a “the most“. Who is it?
