    Now, on top of just trying to figure out how to make a season even work this year, coaches and administrators have to protect some of their student athletes from deportation.

    This is more about China and Chinese students. Hostile countries who train here and then go home with our technology and who knows whatever else they take with them, will be locked out. It's not about our guys.......our kids should be fine, Thane needs to get some information before he tweets. And no, it's not unethical to close the border selectively. I do think the Supremes ruled on that this past year. China, being the source of this pandemic already knows the borders in the US are closed to them since February. Our students from foreign lands should be fine.

    It’s not going to be an issue. These things get worked out, it’s just a new talking point right now.

    And this...https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39044403

    I took me all of 5 minutes to prove my point. Do your own work...It helps you to confirm the point made.

    Again, read the first para of the second link. It's very clear the supremes allow the President ( not just this one) to ban travel from other countries .ie the country itself.

    Duke...it's not the BOARD who makes these decisions. Members of the board only quote the opinions. And it's been true that China has stolen important secrets on top of the CLOVID gift.
    Abe You are wrong.

    You are conflating the right to control entry into a country with expulsion which is leaving.

    Entering and leaving are two different things.

    The University of Southern California just announced they will let international students add an in-person class for FREE to keep their Visa status.
