Two newspapers today India Today and the Economic Times indicated that ICE, a department of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), will be willing to reinstate the student visas of some of the Tri Valley University (TVU) students. This information was communicated to the Indian Consulate. Yet, no official memo or official document has been issued on this particular information.

As a matter of caution, because there neither an official nor written document that has surfaced from the State Department or the Department of Homeland Security, we strongly recommend to all our clients and students not to start volunteering any information without the presence of an attorney. It seems that the US government is trying to “right the wrong”, yet until and unless we see some concrete and definitive action on the situation, we should not be “celebrating”.

We invite you to follow the advices of counsel and not to make any kind of “deal” with any authorities unless it is done through an attorney.

The above is offered for educational and informational purposes only. You should not act or refrain to act solely on the information provided. No attorney-client relationship is created unless a retainer is signed by both the client and the attorney.
