Thousands of Chinese students attending American universities will be expelled from the country amid growing tensions with Beijing, according to a report.

The New York Times, citing discussions with U.S. officials close to the move, reported Thursday that the Trump administration plans to cancel the visas of graduate students and researchers from China who have direct ties to universities affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army.

It said the move would mean the expulsion of at least 3,000 of the 360,000 Chinese students studying in this country.

The Times reported that President Donald Trump met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday to discuss the move.

It said there were discussions to take action against canceling the student visas prior to this week, but Beijing’s move to exert more control over Hong Kong has pushed the action forward.
