Democrats Decry Fake ICE University: Then They Learn Who Actually Created It

Head honcho of the “Squad” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as well as a number of progressives, were outraged after hearing the news of arrests that were made by ICE in which they entrapped students who were illegal immigrants.

Since January there have been around 250 arrests made at a fake university that was set up in order to entice immigrants with violations to enroll and from there they arrest them.

Alyssa Milano was one of the first to express her disdain tweeting,

OH MY GOD.

ICE has arrested about 250 students who were enrolled at a fake university set up by ICE to lure in students.

AOC even went as far as to blame it on Trump when she tweeted,

Earlier this year, Congress rushed to approve BILLIONS more $ for ICE + CBP.

I saw members voting YES w/o even a summary of the bill. Nobody cared then how we’d pay for it.

Now ICE is setting up fake universities to trap students.

Yet we were called radical for opposing it.

Even presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren expressed her disgust as well,

This is cruel and appalling. These students simply dreamed of getting the high-quality higher education America can offer. ICE deceived and entrapped them, just to deport them.

But there is one big problem that none of them are realizing…this fake ICE university was set up under the Obama administration, not under President Trump.

According to Fox News,

The Detroit News reported that Homeland Security agents started posing as university officials in 2017, but the university initially opened in 2015 as part of “Paper Chase” — an undercover operation geared toward exposing recruiters engaging in immigration fraud.

Federal officials reportedly also arrested 21 people on visa fraud, using the fraudulent University of Northern New Jersey in 2016.

The vast majority (80 percent) of the arrests in Michigan resulted in “voluntary departure” from the United States, according to the Detroit Free Press. The remaining students either received an order for removal, contested their removal, or filed for relief.

While many progressive complaints didn’t specifically blame the Trump administration, the incident highlighted how Trump has repeatedly been attacked for tactics used or supported by his predecessor. Ocasio-Cortez has also clarified that she opposed Obama’s immigration policies.
