600 Indian students held in US for immigration rules violation
HYDERABAD: 600 Indian students have been detained in the US for alleged immigration rules violations.According to the American Telugu Association, the students were detained after raids by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
It pointed out in a Facebook post that the Department of Homeland Security, US Immigration and Customs arrested scores of Telugu students nationwide in crackdown on foreign students who were staying in the country without proper authorization.
The Department of Homeland Security said it set up a fake university in Farmington Hills, MI to target foreign students who were staying in the US without proper authorization, according to federal indictments unsealed in Detroit Wednesday.
The American Telugu Association said from 2015, the university was part of a federal law enforcement undercover operation designed to identify recruiters and entities engaged in immigration fraud. Eight student recruiters were charged with participating in a conspiracy to help at least 600 foreign citizens stay in the US illegally, according to the indictments.
“This news was brought to the attention of the American Telugu Association by the affected students and their friends,” the association said explaining its course of action.
Ever since the American Telugu Association started getting calls for guidance and help, the ATA leadership and teams in various cities swung into action. Since the early hours of Jan 30th, 2019, the ATA Legal team and local ATA teams reached out to the Indian Students Associations of various universities. They have been extending guidance to the students and affected parties by advising and counselling them on the next course of action.

Lot of Andhra PEOPLE are REALLY TALENTED.
But A LOT of FAKE CHEATERS also are there.
I have heard U.S. has STRINGENT background verification for STUDENTS from Andhra Pradesh.
Personally I have met Andhra Engineers who COULD NOT EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH.
Engineering courses are conducted in ENGLISH.
How can they become ENGINEERS without knowing ENGLISH?
FAKE COLLEGES and FAKE DEGREES should be STOPPED. It is BRINGING shame to India.

The only dream for most of these guys from unified Andhra is to go to the US. Heard a Telugu friend of mine saying that they are willing to spend lakhs with no return just to step foot in the US. With little skill they somehow survive just to earn money. Why become a Bhikari outside when you live a life of dignity in your own country. Sad.

Do you see, mostly they are from Telugu areas in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, where reportedly they have agents to provide fake educational documents and "assist" in getting visas. They are spoiling good name of Indians abroad especially in the U.S

That''s a clever way to catch hold of illegal ones but in India, human ri-ts would have protested like hell if Indian agencies had done something like this. Maybe the FM personally would have rescued them. Now are those arrested would be deported after they serve their sentence?

everyone is aware of visa frauds in US going back for decades. if US is serious then they can really put thousands of indians in trouble. not the fault of the young men who go their to seek better job, fault of our govt who for decades ignored this fact for long time. GOI should negotiate with US govt to grant an amnesty for all indians who in past committed fraud and willing to come back after cooperating with US law enforcement. if this doesn''t happen some day or other a hell lot of indians are going to face trouble.

Blind run behind green currency, and better lifestyle leads these people to do these things and take unethical shortcuts. They don''t want to live in their own country and make it a better place to live. Be a true patriot, live in India, generate employment. Any day better than going to some other country and violate rules. Jai Hind!!!
盲目追求美国生活方式促使这些人铤而走险。他们不想在自己的国家生活，也不想把自己国家建设成一个更宜居的地方。做一个真正的爱国者，住在印度，为印度创造就业，这比去其他国家违反法规要好。印度必胜! ! !

Telugu people are in news for many things in America. This is not good. Any Indian related organisation should not be doing any shameful things outside India. They are just impacting rest of Indian communities who are aspirant to do something outside India. More over this will bring shamefulness to India.
