Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology filed a lawsuit Wednesday against US Immigration and Customs Enforcement over a new rule that threatened many international students with deportation.
In a statement on Wednesday evening, Northeastern University said it was supporting Harvard and MIT in its lawsuit.
The new policy said students whose courses no longer had an in-person element because of the COVID-19 pandemic would lose their permission to be in the US and might get deported.
President Donald Trump singled out Harvard on Tuesday, criticizing the university for not planning to bring back all its students in the fall as he seeks to fully reopen the US despite spiking coronavirus infections.
