    Despicable. ICE needs to be abolished.

    TLDR version. ICE created a fake university, got foreigners with student visas to register, took their tuition, then busted them for immigration violations because they weren’t enrolled in a real university and deported them.

    As you tell it, that seems like a ridiculous waste of my tax dollars.

    The fake college was created in 2013 under the Obama administration and the sting has been in action since then. I'm pretty sure that back then they believed that's what tax dollars were for.

    What’s wrong with catching people here illegally by subterfuge? I can’t fault Obama too much for this. It certainly seems to have worked better than the gun running scam.

    Perhaps instead of creating a new fictitious university they could have just used Trump u and had the same result.

    But what kind of shitty society are we if we create a fake school just to catch people who are trying to come here legitimately for an education. These weren’t people trying to scam the system to get here. Some people may be cool with that but i’m certainly not.

    Did the students know it was a fake university? Were they attending any classes that would have led them to believe it was a real school?

    Diploma mills are not unheard of. I would not assume the "students" were innocent victims.

    As I understand it, the university didn't offer classes.

    It appears that they didn’t know it was fake until after they’d been scammed out of their money and gotten here. ICE was giving the earlier scammed the choice of being deported or helping them ensnare other victims from their home countries.

    When law enforcement is not enforcing the law against people who knowingly are committing crimes but are instead creating criminals out of people who are trying to go about improving their lives legally then the law ‘enforcers’ are the bad guys in the equation.

    Thank you for explaining Jp1 that it was entrapment.
