WASHINGTON: A prospect of deportation might be on the cards for various Indian students studying in the United States. Reports say that a big raid has been inculcated, leading to the shutting down of a University in the Silicon Valley on the basis of big immigration fraud charges imposed on the same.
The Tri-Valley University, the educational institution in concerned, is located in Pleasanton in San Francisco Bay Area. The Federal investigating authorities have charged the same for being involved in immigration related scams, money laundering matters and other fraudulent crimes.
The complaint filed in a California court says that the educational institution faced a raid last week and since then is facing a shut down, leaving thousands of students in a state of limbo. It is believed that one thousand five hundred and fifty five students are a part of the University, with 95 percent belonging to Indian origin.
Investigations further found that students were enrolled in various courses and were living in California, in accordance with papers. But reality speaks an altogether different story, pointing at their intentions to work in an undocumented manner in different parts of the country.
Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) has termed this institution as a sham university, highlighting its work to enroll students in an undocumented manner so that they can work anywhere in the country on an illegal basis. The investigations cleared that more than fifty percent of these students were living in a single apartment situated in Sunnyvale California.
This has now created a state of dread amongst the Indian students.
