Ten more Indian students face arrest, deportation in US

Wed, Apr 06, 2016, 10:45 AM
Ten more Indian students have been snared by a fraud visa agency, run by US Federal agents themselves, into seeking admissions to a fake University of Northern New Jersey. The Indian students, or at least those of Indian descent going by their names, now face deportation like hundreds of others.

The American authorities said they had allowed one thousand foreign students stay illegally in the US. The accused have been charged with visa fraud and making false statements. Each carries a sentence of 5 years. The H1-B Visa fraud and harbouring aliens carries a sentence of 10 years each.

The authorities are cancelling non-immigrant student visas of foreign students who had made use of the UNNJ University. They face arrest and deportation.

Eleven Chinese students also face similar arrest and deportation for seeking admission to the same university.

The Indian Embassy is in touch with the US government in Washington in pursuit of the cases of the 10 students.

Some 370 to 380 Indian students were already facing similar charges. The embassy is seeking fair treatment for the students who had sought admission to Tri Valley Univrsity, allowing them to apply for admission to other institutions. The embassy is awaiting consular access for the 10 students also.

The Indian students are falling prey to fake universities in the US such as Tri-Valley, University of Northern Virginia, and now the University of Northern New Jersey.
