美国国际学生人数降18%

The COVID-19 pandemic and a flurry of immigration-related directives from the last administration devastated enrollment of international students at US schools in 2020, the Wall Street Journal reported.

《华尔街日报》报道称,由于新冠疫情肆虐,以及上届美国政府实施了一系列针对移民的严苛政策,2020年美国国际学生注册人数出现大幅下降。

The number of international students fell by 18% last year, to 1.25 million, according to a new tally by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program.

根据美国入境和海关执法局学生及交流学者部门的最新统计,2020年在美国各级学校注册的国际学生人数与上年相比下降了18%,减至125万名。

Visa records for newly enrolled students tumbled by 72%, and F-1 student visas went down by more than 90% in August 2020, when the new school year started, according to the Journal.

It is no sure thing next year will look much better, as many consulates and embassies remain closed or are processing visas only on an emergency basis.

这一状况估计在未来一年内难以好转,因为美国驻多国的使领馆仍处于关闭状态,或仅在紧急情况下才办理签证业务。

As of March 1, 43 out of 223 consular posts were operating at full capacity, according to the US State Department.

美国国务院的数据显示,截至3月1日,美国全球223家领事机构中,只有43家保持正常开放状态。
