Translated summary: With the tightening of immigration policy, the number of visas that the United States issued to foreign students last year dropped. Chinese student visa numbers fell by 24%, which had to do with a 2014 visa policy change. Immigration attorney Leon Fresco said he visited consulates across India and was told the State Department has an emphasis on checking that students actually plan to return to their home country after graduation.
