“The doors of U.S. educational institutions are open to all qualified students from around the world. The United States is proud of an educational system that attracts students and scholars from across the globe. In the words of President Bush, “We encourage international students to take part in our educational system. … The relationships that are formed between individuals from different countries, as part of international education programs and exchanges … foster goodwill that develops into vibrant, mutually beneficial partnerships among nations.”
