FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich (CBS Detroit) – At first glance, it seemed real, the University of Farmington boasted that its “innovative curriculum combines traditional instruction and distance learning with full-time professional experiences.”

However, the University was not real, it was created in 2015 as part of a sting operation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

According to the Detroit Free Press, on Wednesday, ICE arrested 130 foreign students across the country who were enrolled in the fake school.

The school targeted legal immigrants who wanted to stay in the country past their visa or those who wanted to re-enter the country so they could work.

The prosecutor maintains that the students arrested knew they were participating in the illegal operation, they call it a “pay-to-stay” scheme. It is unclear how many students are facing deportation, but it’s being called one of the largest sweeps in recent years.

On Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security shut down a website that had been created for the University of Farmington. On the website, it now reads: “The University of Farmington has been closed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

    1. When you knowingly break the law, that’s not entrapment. Go back to law school or was your law school fake too?

      1. Tam Brineman says:

        Anyone named Dork Blaster is completely fake.

    2. Lonnie Langle says:

      This is not entrapment. Immigrants are not getting in trouble for enrolling in the fake school. They’re getting in trouble for working on a student visa. If ICE was also helping the immigrants find jobs illegally, then entrapment might apply, but they weren’t.

    Fantastic! This was a very creative method of catching illegal alien criminals. I hope they round them all up, and ship them the he11 out of America.

  2. Jorge Gonzalez says:

    I’m so proud of Obama, Holder and Lynch for creating this fake U and collecting these feral garbage illegals to dump back into their homelands.

    1. Avrum Halevi says:

      Yeah, they sure are missed.

  3. Jesher Spelling says:

    Thank you. We in San Diego, CA are desperate President Trump. “America’s finest City” has turned into third world rat hole. Entitled emboldened illegals taking everything the can grab with their greedy little hands. Welfare, ER’s, and Schools clogged to the rafters of takers who push and cut you in line, throw garbage on the ground like it’s Mexico or Guatemala, carry diseases we eradicated 50 years ago, refuse to speak English (why should they?) and we are SICK OF IT ALL. 23 BILLION a year we spend on these leeches! Imagine if CA got to spend that on AMERICANS living in the gutter strung out on Mexican Smack!

    1. Send em to Wisconsin, we are finding people frozen outdoors….join the fray…welfare and drivers license for Illegals is illegal everywhere…check those ss numbers, verify before proceeding past go…

    2. Warrior of GOD says:

      Maybe the people in California will wake up and see the problems the demorats are causing in that state……Third world people bring their diseases……….

  4. Trump 2020 ! He must and he WILL win again. The future of our republic depends on it.

    I’m all for LEGAL immigration, not for importing the world’s rejects.

  6. That’s about 260 less democrat votes.

  7. Steven Soleri says:

    This countriy’s illegal immigration is so crazy out of control it is amazing. Thank you dem-bats

  8. These people on here trying to ‘defend’ these INVADERS are traitors. They do not care one whit about America or Americans. For far too long we have seen the Communist traitors attempting to use the law to advance their traitorous activities. I, for one, think these people are as bad as the INVADERS and like the INVADERS they should be rounded up, stripped of their US Citizenship, and dump en-masse in some of these 3rd world countries like Chad, or Niger.

  9. Luis Martinez says:

    place the cheese out and the rats will come…

  10. Dan Purcell says:

    What an awesome idea

  11. Jim Williams says:

    130 down, 40 million to go.

  12. Dennis Meyler says:

    What? You mean my degree in Social Justice Journalism from the University of Farmington is worthless? Where do I go to get my $120 back?
