  • “Editorial: Reopen doors/U.S. needs foreign students,” Star Tribune, Aug. 3, 2004. “Not even the personal endorsement of the president of the college [Humphrey Tusimiirwe] had chosen, the University of St. Thomas, and the availability of a scholarship there could cut through the screen put up by federal immigration authorities, who claimed he had insufficient proof that he would return to Uganda after graduation. It finally took the intervention of U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman to bring him to the St. Paul campus last January.”
