higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

Detroit Free Press reports -- ICE set up a fake university in Michigan. They got it on the DHS website. They solicited international students. They then arrested and deported the students because they were attending a fake university (these do exist and can be used to get green cards BUT...)

...they literally brought people to this country under false pretenses and then deported them.

higher ed, fuck ICE, deportation, caps 

DEPORTATIONS AFFECT PEOPLE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. THEY WILL LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO TRAVEL HERE FOR PLEASURE. THEY WILL LIKELY NEVER GET ANOTHER GREEN CARD. THEY WILL LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO BECOME CITIZENS THOUGH I CAN SEE WHY THEY'D NEVER WANT TO COME HERE AGAIN.

EVERYONE INVOLVED IN AND SUPPORTING ICE TRULY DESERVES AN ETERNAL LAKE FIRE IF SUCH A THING IS REAL.

@platypus see, i was gonna say, that's an interesting angle of weeding out foreign competition, but you already figured that out

higher ed, fuck ICE, deportation, caps 

@platypus What's even more disgusting (if there is a thing) is the area they targeted (Dearborn, Farmington) are predominantly Middle-Eastern and Jewish. And with the mess of charter schools and universities popping up it's hard to keep up with what's legit and what isn't (and even the "legit" ones are shady.

Honestly the only word for this is "entrapment" and sadly it works because these folks aren't yet citizens.

Fuck these monsters.

@platypus ...I don't understand. WHY would they do that?

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@Anke 1) because they are truly evil

2) because there ARE places in the US which enroll students in order get them fake Visas and then the students work in the US and supposedly get a degree here and have a better chance of getting green cards

3) because they are TRULY evil

(they argue the students should've known it was fake. as though coming to another country's systems is easy & intuitive)

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus @Anke i went from Austria to Germany, two neighbouring countries where the same language is spoken, and hit a bunch of unexpected issues

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@meena @platypus re: neighbouring countries with the same language, i'm canadian & my job involves hunting down foreign-jurisdiction qualifications for other matters.

i wouldn't have a CLUE how to recognize what organization i should be dealing with to try to figure out if a US school is legit... especially knowing how much of a convoluted patchwork of state and federal regulation goes into everything USA-related

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus @Anke "Because they're evil" is usually a cop out answer. But ICE is working very hard to make it the default answer. By this point I want severe penalties imposed on senior officials once we have a legitimate government again.

@platypus literally for what purpose? money? do they treat this shit like it's a sport?

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@freon they made millions and stopped a bunch of non-white people from being able to ever move to the US in future (unless a judge blocks this or scrubs their records) so yeah probably treating it like a sport.

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus @freon Every ICE agent is a terrorist who targets innocent people, and every ICE agent deserves to be punished for what they've done.

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus oh, they did it again

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus

And this was an Obama-era production, not just something the Trump admin cooked up.

re: higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@Aerdan yeah, ICE is only bigger now not more evil

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful

@platypus
As Lily Tomlin put it, "no matter how cynical you get, it's impossible to keep up."

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus they lured international students here, took millions of dollars in fees from them, then arrested and deported them.

Don't forget the massive amount of money intentionally being made on human torture.

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@raye it’s not even entrapment because they made it look so legit that only they knew for sure students were technically breaking the law. It’s just awful cruelty

higher ed, fuck ICE, they're really going beyond to be awful 

@platypus it's a nasty engineered loophole, all the students had legit visas, but coming to attend an illegal school was the crime.
