Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested more than 250 people who enrolled at a fake university hoping to cheat the United States’ student visa laws.
ICE set up the program to lure in individuals who have sought to take up residency in the country through student visas, without actually studying at a real university and paying tuition.
Most of the people who were busted trying to game student visa rules in order to obtain legal residency have been described as Indian nationals.
The fake students signed up with “University of Farmington,” a sham Detroit university that advertised itself as a pathway for the foreign nationals to obtain legal residency in the US without actually being a real college students. In reality, the University of Farmington was a creation of ICE from its inception.
The arrests have been taking place since January. Farmington never offered any college classes in a physical location, not qualifying as a accredited university to those who claimed student status in order to keep a visa.
Detroit’s ICE office has confirmed that 80% of the fake students busted in the sting have been deported or voluntarily left the country. Another 10% have been ordered by immigration judges to depart. The remaining 10% are currently fighting ongoing cases in the immigration court system.
Several “recruiters” for the fake school are facing criminal charges for finding people willing to sign up to commit immigration fraud, offering them a chance to get a student visa without being a student.
Unfortunately, ICE’s success in nabbing hundreds of fake students through the sting reveals the rampant fraud and abuse prevalent within the student visa system. Conservatives have become increasingly skeptical of programs that allow generous access to foreign university students, and an epidemic of fraud from those seeking to bypass immigration law doesn’t speak favorably towards the utility of the foreign student visa program.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
