Context matters

Decline Seen in Science Applications From Overseas. This isn't that big a deal, a nation has a right to control who comes & goes, but it seems perverse that the current regime is succeeding in discouraging graduate students at the same time it is aiming for a modus vivendi with those who circumvent the process & violate our laws. There are practical reasons that these students are easier to monitor and control, and discourage, but perhaps we should consider reallocating resources to create a level immigration playing field so that those who violate our laws are as discomfited.
