Happy Hour News Briefs
About 90 additional foreign students of a fake university in metro Detroit created by the Department of Homeland Security have been arrested in recent months.
A total of about 250 students have now been arrested since January on immigration violations by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as part of a sting operation by federal agents who enticed foreign-born students, mostly from India, to attend the school that marketed itself as offering graduate programs in technology and computer studies, according to ICE officials…
The students had arrived legally in the U.S. on student visas, but since the University of Farmington was later revealed to be a creation of federal agents, they lost their immigration status after it was shut down in January. The school was located on Northwestern Highway near 13 Mile Road in Farmington Hills and staffed with undercover agents posing as university officials.
Out of the approximately 250 students arrested on administrative charges, “nearly 80% were granted voluntary departure and departed the United States,” the Detroit office of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) told the Free Press in a statement Tuesday.
Did you get that? ICE marketed a FAKE school as being fully accredited and then arrested the students that they recruited. Students arrived with legal student visas, and were then arrested on administrative charges: Their visas weren’t valid, because the school wasn’t real.
But wait! There’s more!
The fake university is believed to have collected millions of dollars from the unsuspecting students. An email from the university’s president, named Ali Milani, told students that graduate programs’ tuition is $2,500 per quarter and the average cost is $1,000 per month.
“They made a lot of money,” Reddy said of the U.S. government.
Prznint McGrifter is rubbing off on the rest of the gubmint. That’s practically Trump-U level of criminal grifting, and ICE is doing it in our name.
