iting a production error, the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration
Services has recalled Green Cards
issued to 8,543 permanent resi-
dents and notified recipients of
those cards as well as their attorneys.
The recall began on May 14 and applies
to cards that were mailed between Febru-
ary and April of this year. The individuals
affected are spouses of U.S. citizens; the
cards were issued to those who completed
Form I-751, the “Petition to Remove Condi-
tions of Residence.”
The USCIS says on its website that the
cards in question have an incorrect “resi-
dent since” date. Because spouses of U.S.
citizens are eligible to apply to become
naturalized citizens after three years as
Green Card holders, a card with an inaccu-
rate date could lengthen their citizenship
application process, the agency said.
Green card holders who receive notification from the agency that they are
among those affected will be provided
with a pre-paid envelope for returning the
cards within 20 days of the notice’s arrival.
They are also permitted to return the cards
to a USCIS field office.
The agency website said that the USCIS
would send the replacement Green Cards
within 15 days after receiving the cards
with the error.
The website noted that surrender of the
cards with the error has no bearing on the
holders’ status as legal permanent residents.
The USCIS said that affected Green Card
holders who may need to travel overseas
or provide proof of their lawful status
while awaiting the card’s replacement can
contact the USCIS at 800-375-5283 for
Indian students credited for boom in
foreign students in Kentucky
Unlike more than half of the states in
the U.S., which experienced a noted decline in their population of international
students between March 2017 and March
2018, Kentucky’s enrollment is booming –
and most of the students are from India.
According to a report in Quartz, although fewer international students are
coming to the U.S. in general, Kentucky experienced a growth of more than 6,200 –
boosting its ranks by more than 70 percent
over the previous time period.
Ninety-five percent of that increase is
the result of the enrollment of students
from India, said Quartz. They are candidates for master’s degrees in the STEM
fields, meaning they are pursuing degrees
in science, technology, engineering and
Quartz said that Kentucky is not considered a major destination for international
students and that is likely the reason its
change in numbers is so dramatic. By contrast, New York State had 138,750 international students by March 2018, Quartz
The Quartz report noted that increases
in enrollment were also seen in 18 other
states and Washington D.C.
Quartz also noted that two Kentucky
universities, aware of the strong interest in
the STEM fields, have created new masters
programs in those disciplines to encourage
foreign students to enroll: the University
of the Cumberlands, a private religious
college in Williamsburg and Campbellsville University which was founded as
a private Baptist college in Campbellsville.
Quartz said that in 2017, both universities set records for foreign student enrollment.
Quartz noted that a number of universities also have programs that not only permit off-campus employment but view it as
a vital part of the curriculum.
This is known as CPT, or Curricular
Practical Training, which is considered an
acceptable activity for holders of F- 1 international student visas.
“This makes an F- 1 as good as a work
visa for students enrolled in certain programs,” writes Quartz.
