The lawsuit seeks a temporary restraining order and preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to bar the US Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement from forcing international students to leave the US.

Indian nationals account for nearly 70 per cent of all H-1B visa issued.
