Illegal U: An Immigration
Scam in Plain Sight

American Greatness, by Ken Masugi

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/7/2017 8:13:52 AM

The often desperate measures foreigners take to enter our borders—crossing deserts being packed into trucks, and surviving unspeakable brutalities—rightly provoke our anger and evoke our pity. Because of the pathos involved in this kind of illegal entry, we often overlook the fact that there is a far safer and common way for would-be illegals to enter our country. It is a method of entry that should produce even more anger and disgust because of its blatant opportunism; even as it is more likely to result in arrangements that could be mutually profitable. Some enterprising persons (both foreigners and citizens) have

Do not leave out the Religious schools, any church or organization that classifies itself as a religion can set up their own for profit university. What they teach is unknown but they still sell degrees like Tootsie Rolls. And the lure of "refugee" dollars for "tuition" is impossible to not accept.

Yes, I have personal experience with uncovering such church scams. But, it did no good. Everything they were doing was considered perfectly legal.

Yeah, point taken, but I don´t think all those Chinese and Muslim students are coming here for the Christian schools. Most Christian schools don´t even qualify for government assistance - unless they have long since sold their soul.

A simple search brought up the top 10:

There is something to this article, but its failure to list a single specific example suggests to me that it is intended to get conservatives to join the attack on for-profit colleges.

I remember the Obama Administration attacking for-profit colleges so that several members could take one over at bargain basement prices.

Given the steep decline in the quality, student makeup and uselessness of degrees of our once legitimate universities, it would be very difficult to separate the scam schools from the once-reputable institutions. Often, a student does not realize that he has been scammed until long after paying tuition or until he attempts to get a job and realizes that he has no employable skills. I attended a very good computer programming school in Virginia which launched a successful career for me but the African Studies courses at Harvard would probably be considered more valuable these days. Then there are the Palestinian jihadis we learned of several days ago who teach at some of our largest "institutions of higher learning."

The esoteric immigration lawyer industry is a big pusher of visa related immigration scams through their contacts with the Congress, the foreign born voter hungry Democrats, some cheap labor Republicans, foreign entities and governments, the involved schools and the US employers who are out to hire easily manageable cheap foreign labor as obtaining visas for aliens to enter the USA is where the big money comes from that flows into immigration lawyers pockets.

The immigration lawyers and the Democrats over the years have so complicated the administrative immigration court procedures and rules to the effect that it can take up to five years or more to deport an illegal alien who jumped the borderline fence and made an illegal entry into the USA. Under those procedures and rules, an illegal alien who usually has the wherewithal to pay an immigration lawyer can appeal his or her initial immigration judge ruling, to the administrative Board of Immigration Appeals of the US Dept. of Justice, a federal circuit court of appeals and up to the US Supreme Court that takes years to complete. During that period, among other things, the illegal alien can get married to a US citizen or resident alien and have children, thus further complicating the case.

On top of that, most of the immigration judges who issue initial decisions in such cases were themselves immigration defense lawyers before they were administratively appointed to immigration judge positions in the immigration court system. All that serves to undermine the enforcement of the immigration laws and the actual deportation of huge numbers of illegal aliens big time, as was pointed out just yesterday, when it was reported that there is a backlog of 550,000 cases relating to illegal aliens pending before those courts.

Sex is private. Everybody lies about sex. And the classic but far from classy quip from James Carville, "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you´ll find." Democrats were so clever that they thought they got away with it when they protected Bill Clinton in 1998. But they still pay today. Margaret Carlson of the Daily Beast bravely tried to fashion the sow´s ear of Al Franken into a silk purse.(Snip) Nice try, but it won´t work because as long as Bill Clinton is alive, so is his scandal. He survived but at a price others pay.

Though the hate-filled press would like you to think otherwise, this Christmas we have witnessed a return to a classic sense of style at the White House. The much-discussed Trump Christmas decor has contributed to this proper and appropriate appreciation of style which—as opposed to fashion—is timeless. Adam Flusser, the master of sartorial propriety, taught us certain standards complement our humanity. Style is higher than fashion because style comports itself with something eternal; something that is in accord timeless and elegant principles.(Snip)When the Obamas occupied the White House, their decorations reflected a cavalier attitude not only about the meaning of

Toward the final months of his presidency Barack Obama infamously said the following regarding jobs that had left America – including millions during his eights years as President: “…some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back.” And when commenting on then-candidate Donald Trump’s promise to bring jobs back, Mr. Obama said this: “…Well, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?” No magic want was needed by POTUS Trump. Just some common sense, a basic understanding of economics (remember, Barack Obama never created a private sector job in his life and is

The Republican establishment group fronted by failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin — which has spent $500,000 against populist conservative Judge Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race — supports a constant flow of Middle East migration to the United States. McMullin’s “Stand Up Republic” has spent half a million dollars attempting to help elect Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, pro-open borders Democrat candidate Doug Jones, as Breitbart News reported. The GOP establishment organization, though, is vastly at odds with Alabama voters, opposing President Trump’s travel ban, which blocks foreign nationals from a handful of countries that export terrorism,

Birmingham, ALABAMA — Despite efforts by Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones to pass himself off as a moderate, the politician has been deeply tied to radical groups financed by billionaire George Soros and has led efforts on behalf of those groups seeking to enact far-left, transformational policies. Jones’s personal website has urged supporters to get involved with Soros-financed far-left groups and he took leadership positions in numerous Soros-financed activist projects, including one seeking to fundamentally remake the U.S. criminal justice system into one that pushes progressive policies. He also took a significant role in an effort by a far-left legal

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time.

Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
