Trump administration visa restrictions aimed at Chinese STEM students to start in June

In a policy change set for next month, the Trump administration is moving to shorten visas for Chinese students in fields like tech and engineering. While most visas are issued for the longest possible length of time under law, the new policy will allow U.S. officials to put a one year cap on visas for Chinese graduate students who are "studying in fields like robotics, aviation and high-tech manufacturing," according to the Associated Press.
