What Big Tech has to gain—and lose—from a Biden presidency

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A Biden win means friendlier immigration policies and the likely end of trade war. But the tech giants will still be facing bipartisan goals to enforce antitrust and reform social media. The Trump Administration has brought both helpful and harmful changes to Big Tech, some awkward relationships, and enough drama for a lifetime. Big Tech companies were among the biggest beneficiaries of the Trump Tax Cuts of 2017, but they were also made to pay—in tariffs—for their decisions long ago to move supply chains and manufacturers to China. The disconnect in values between tech leaders like Tim Cook and the Trump administration couldn’t have been much wider, and yet tech companies were forced to maintain cordial relations with the White House.

I recently moved back to India after seven years as an international student on a F-1 visa, with the feeling that I left the U.S. just before things got worse. I could have never anticipated how true this would be. Read Full Story

ICE tells foreign college students they may not be able to stay in the U.S.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Between online and in-person classes, higher ed may look very different this fall, and that will likely cause headaches for foreign students. One of the biggest unknowns to arise from the COVID-19 pandemic is whether or not students of all ages will be able to return to classrooms come the new academic year. Foreign students hoping to pursue their degrees at U.S. colleges and universities have had some of their questions answered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) today. The guidance issued by ICE varies depending on whether the school is offering courses online, in person, or in some hybrid of the two. And it gets more complicated from there. Read Full Story
