Trump may NOT want to know that most of the foreign students studying in America are from China…..
THE NUMBER OF NEW international students enrolling for the first time at an American college fell by more than 6 percent in fall 2017.
According to Open Doors 2018, a report by the State Department and the Institute of International Education, about 271,700 new students enrolled at American institutions in fall 2017, compared to about 290,800 who enrolled the previous year.
However, the number of international students in the U.S. increased 1.5 percent in the 2017-2018 school year to a new high of about 1.09 million. In the 2016-2017 school year, there were about 1.07 million international students. The increase in overall students despite the decrease in new students is a result of current students participating in the Optional Practical Training program which allows students to remain in the country for temporary work after graduation for a certain period of time.
