Surprise: Enrollment drops when laws make it hard to enroll
Sunday, November 27, 2005

From the Computing Research Associates bulletin:

The number of international students enrolled in Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) at all degree levels in the United States fell 32.5 percent between 2003/04 and 2004/05, according to the Institute of International Education's Open Doors 2005 report. Foreign students enrolled in CIS numbered 57,739 in 2003/04 and 38,966 in 2004/05.

And lest you think it's an across the board sort of thing:

Among all fields, foreign enrollments declined 1.3 percent. Between 2002/03 and 2003/04, foreign enrollments declined 2.4 percent. Previous to this, foreign enrollments experienced decades of significant growth.

Diversity is strength and that's especially true in science, research, and any other creative endeavor. We've made it significantly more difficult for foreigners to come here and go to school (or even visit). It's a dumb thing.
