Stuck between U.S. and China

Last week, the Trump administration announced a new policy that could force international students out of the U.S. if their universities move to online-only classes. This puts more than a quarter of a million Chinese students in the U.S. at risk of losing their visas — and students from Hong Kong are at special risk of being arrested upon their return due to a new Chinese security law.

  • Plus, a majority of American parents see a big risk in having kids return to classrooms this fall.
  • And, three different countries — the U.S., China and the United Arab Emirates — have planned launches to Mars this month.
