- The United States should provide Special Student Relief automatically to international students.
- These countries include Myanmar, Syria, and Venezuela
“For some F-1 students, it may make sense to apply for TPS status. For others—especially those from countries with expectations of shorter TPS designations—it may make more sense to keep F-1 designation to ensure no interruption in their education to reapply for a student visa should their country’s TPS designation end,” Dela Peña writes in the report.
An expired SSR status before a granted visa extension of F-1 students from countries like Myanmar, Syria, and Venezuela forces them to halt their education, disrupting their learning in the process.
Hence, to avoid such gaps, the Niskanen Center recommends that support of policies that automatically grant students SSR be pushed.
