A fake university in Michigan was set up by ICE to nab foreign students.
The Department of Homeland Security set up a fake Detroit-area university to target foreign students who wanted to stay in the U.S. without proper authorization in a “pay to play” scheme, according to a new report.
A scam to catch all the scammers.
Wait for it….These fake students are now victims, who will sue the good ol’ USA and Senate Democrats will fight for them to stay in Sanctuary Cities (at no charge of course!) “Farmington Hills fake university set up by ICE to nab foreign students.” https://t.co/IwQh4uuzii

The Department of Homeland Security set up a fake university in Farmington Hills to target foreign students who wanted to stay in the U.S. without proper authorization, according to federal indictments unsealed in Detroit on Wednesday.
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.
Six of them were arrested in metro Detroit, one in Florida and another in Virginia. The students enrolled at the fake university with the intent to obtain jobs under a student visa program called CPT (Curricular Practical Training) that allows students to work in the U.S., said prosecutors.
An indictment says the defendants helped at least 600 “foreign citizens to illegally remain, re-enter and work in the United States and actively recruited them to enroll in a fraudulent school as part of a ‘pay to stay’ scheme.”
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.” More
It’s pretty clear that these illegals were hoping to game the system. Deport every one of them. They wouldn’t have to pull scams like this if they were allowed to do their jobs in the first place.
Liberals will cry that these people are going to be deprived of an education… Not caring about all the laws they broke.
