If a Marxist screenwriter had devised this scenario as a critique of racial capitalism and arbitrary law enforcement in America it would be dismissed as de trop:
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.
Many of those arrested have been deported to India while others are contesting their removals. One has been allowed to stay after being granted lawful permanent resident status by an immigration judge.
You read that right. ICE created a fake university, got people to apply and come to the country in good faith, and then deported them. Just disrupting the lives of innocent people, inflicting an staggering amount of stress and inconvenience, for the purpose of manufacturing illegal immigrants to deport.
And, for that perfect touch, the Oakland County campus of Trump University is keeping the tuition money it charged students for the fake university!
Emails obtained by the Free Press earlier this year showed how the fake university attracted students to the university, which cost about $12,000 on average in tuition and fees per year.
The U.S. “trapped the vulnerable people who just wanted to maintain (legal immigration) status,” Rahul Reddy, a Texas attorney who represented or advised some of the students arrested, told the Free Press this week. “They preyed upon on them.”
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.
Hey, a fool and his money are lucky enough to get together in the first place am I right?
The existence of this out-of-control authoritarian operation is one of the many ways in which the reaction to 9/11 made things worse. Happy Thanksgiving!
