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.

Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, believes that the law comes directly from God. In 2003, he was removed as chief justice of the state´s Supreme Court for refusing to take down a monument of the Ten Commandments he´d installed there. (Snip)But while his Democratic opponent, former prosecutor Doug Jones, is hoping to get a boost from female voters in Alabama, plenty of women are standing by Moore.

The terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide-bomb in New York came to the United States from Bangladesh as a “chain migration” relative of an individual who had immigrated earlier into the United States. In October, President Donald Trump called for an end to this “chain migration” process in his immigration principles. On Monday 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladesh national, injured three individuals when he allegedly tried to detonate a suicide bomb in New York City in a planned terrorist attack. Ullah, as confirmed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), entered the U.S. in 2011 as a chain migrant. Under

Well, CNN stepped on a rake again. Last week, they totally botched a story about Donald Trump, his son, and his inner circle receiving an email from Michael Erickson that contained a decryption key to a trove of Wikileaks emails from John Podesta and the DNC. The insinuation was that these documents weren’t public when in fact, they were. They also got the dates wrong.

Trump’s Jerusalem Gambit
Recalls Harry Truman

When the United States recognized the Jewish state of Israel, it sent shockwaves throughout the international system. Donald Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is as historic as Harry Truman’s move in 1948. In fact, the announcement last week is probably the most consequential foreign policy decision of the young Trump Administration. Of course, there is significant opposition to the decision—not least because it was Trump who made it. The United States effectively served as midwife to the modern state of Israel during the Truman Administration. President Truman’s decision to recognize Israel as an independent state was met with

Usually, though, the mudlarkers cull lesser treasures from the foreshore’s mire—animal bones, buttons, and pipes.

Dick Clark had a game show called The $10,000 Pyramid. It was so successful that eventually it became The $100,000 Pyramid. Contestants guessed at the category by hearing examples of things in the category. For example, "bats, baseballs, gloves" were clues for Things You Would Use In A Ballgame. Easy as pi.

Santa Barbara County was under siege from the Thomas fire Sunday as fire crews fought to keep the destructive blaze from the region’s picturesque beach communities. Authorities said the out-of-control blaze had scorched 230,000 acres by Sunday evening, making it the fifth largest wildfire in modern California history. The fire grew by more than 50,000 acres during the day, triggering new evacuation orders for about 5,000 county residents, including those east of Mission Canyon and north of Highway 192. An additional 30,000 residents west of Mission Canyon to Highway 154 and south of Highway 192 to the county line were told

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.

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.

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.

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
