White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says, instead of Harvard suing the Trump administration over a move to strip visas from foreign students whose courses moved entirely online, students should consider suing her former Alma Mater for charging the full $50k tuition.
“I think the policy speaks for itself,” McEnany said on Wednesday. “You know, you don’t get a visa for taking online classes from let’s say, the University of Phoenix, so why would you if you were just taking online classes generally?”
“And I would note with regard to Harvard and MIT suing over this, and all due respect to my former Alma Mater, perhaps a better lawsuit would be coming from students who have to pay full tuition with no access to in-person classes to attend,” McEnany said.

They have a 41 BILLION dollar endowment. Why are they still ripping students off?
The reason Harvard is worked up about international online only students being sent home is they’re used as cheap slave labor in teaching and research assistant roles. Without them, professors might actually have to do some work for a change.— Joe Pilot, MD (@JoeSilverman7) July 8, 2020
Could this be the real reason Harvard & other elite schools are going online only or mostly online this fall? Could it be they'd rather not lose that overseas student tuition, (almost no foreign students get fin. aid), & will punish everyone else to do so?https://t.co/3gwaiRRkyD— Jake Novak (@jakejakeny) July 7, 2020

Study finds that 43% of whites admitted to @Harvard were recruited athletes, legacy students, children of faculty and staff, or applicants whose parents or relatives donated to Harvard. ~75% of them “would have been rejected” if not in these categories.🙄https://t.co/dmf8wgguD5— Dr. Dena Grayson (@DrDenaGrayson) July 7, 2020
