Post Should we welcome foreign students? 

The number of new foreign students coming to the United States grew this school year, after several years of weakness that followed the terrorist attacks of 2001, according to a survey to be released today by the Institute of International Education.

The institute, in a separate report, also found that the number of American students studying abroad hit a record 205,983 in 2004-5, an 8 percent increase over the previous year and more than double the number in the 1994-95 school year.

According to the survey, conducted by the institute and other education groups, the number of new international students at American colleges and universities increased 8 percent this fall over last, to 142,923. Increase of Foreign Students

The U of M enrolls a large number of foreign students each year. A good number of 9/11 hijackers came here on student visa. Most foreign students stay here after they complete their trainings and that means they will compete with American-born workers for the same jobs.

Should we welcome this trend or do you think the influx of foreign students poses a threat to our national security and job security?
