The fallout from a fake university scheme in the U.S. grew Thursday, with a federal official confirming to VOA that police have arrested 138 foreign nationals across the country — and more arrests may be coming.

The scheme, according to a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday, lured willing students to a school they knew would never grant them a degree, but would allow them to work legally in the United States while technically being enrolled in higher education, potentially committing visa fraud.

All but one of the 130 arrested "students" are Indian citizens. The remaining person detained in the "pay-to-stay" plot is Palestinian, according to a U.S. immigration official. Eight more people face criminal charges.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents created the bogus University of Farmington, outside of Detroit, Michigan, in 2015. Since then, more than 600 foreign citizens enrolled in the school, the U.S. government alleges — despite the fact that it had no faculty, no campus, and no hallmarks of any legitimate U.S. higher education institution. It is unrelated to the similar-sounding University of Maine - Farmington, a legitimate public university, in the state of Maine.

Seems like a pretty good hustle. I wonder how popular this kind a scam this is.

This proves the Racism of the Trump Derangement Syndrome Sufferes

BEAUSE ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE NOT HISPANIC.

Yes, Even Canadians that have Fled the oppressive taxes of the Great White north. (Remember ~2% of the Canadian Citizens have IMMIGRATED to the US.) if they are here illegally visa overstay, illegally crossed the border should be deported just as quickly as any other illegal immigrant.

Immigration to Canada - Wikipedia

There are over 1 million Canadians living in the US (many millions more descendants of Canadian immigrants to the USA – New England alone is 20–25% of Canadian descent) and 1 million Americans living in Canada

36,000,000 Canadian Citizens (Total)

1,000,000+ have fled to the US

1,000,000/36,000,000 = 2.8%

Just think how bad is a nation that causes 2 out of every 100 to LEAVE.
