How do you catch those who try to extend their stay illegally? You offer them a college education. Brilliant if you ask me. From the Detroit Free Press.
Eight people were arrested and indicted in an immigration fraud case for conspiracy to commit visa fraud and harboring aliens for profit, said the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan Matthew Schneider. The indictments were filed Jan. 15 and unsealed Wednesday. They allege that from February 2017 through January 2019, the defendants “conspired with each other and others to fraudulently facilitate hundreds of foreign nationals in illegally remaining and working in the United States by actively recruiting them to enroll into a metro Detroit private university that, unbeknownst to the conspirators, was operated by HSI (Homeland Security Investigation) special agents as part of an undercover operation.”
So eight people were helping hundreds to stay here illegally. How sick is that? In closing, look at this from FOX.
The indictment alleged the students who enrolled “knew that they would not attend any actual classes, earn credits or make academic progress towards an actual degree,” but enrolled only to remain in the country. Student visas allow individuals to remain in the U.S. if they are enrolled in school and working toward a degree. If not, they must leave within 60 days.
