Microsoft Corp. /zigman2/quotes/207732364/composite MSFT +2.86% , Google parent Alphabet Inc. /zigman2/quotes/202490156/composite GOOGL +1.80% /zigman2/quotes/205453964/composite GOOG +1.78% , and Facebook Inc. /zigman2/quotes/205064656/composite FB +1.47% have joined a lawsuit against the Trump administration over a new rule that would force foreign students to leave the country this fall if their colleges teach through online-only classes. In joining a July 13 lawsuit filed by Harvard University and M.I.T. against the Department of Homeland Security, the tech trio contends the new policy would impact hundreds of thousands of foreign students throughout the U.S. Under the ruling, announced by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week, in-person classes-only would result in many international student visas being revoked.
