Hundreds of students will be repatriated from America because of fake college

Hearing the news that hundreds of Chinese students will be repatriated to China by American government because they are admitted to fake university in America, I am very surprised. It is something like an enforcing the law by fishing.

     In the story, we know that the college is fake. There is no curriculum, no courses, no classes and so on. It is incredible for those who hope to get a degree without paying. Of course, the story tells us an important thing that we cannot expect to get something illegally.

     In China, it is not allowed to enforce the law by fishing. Obviously, using a wrong way to prove a thing equals to a fault result. But why it works in America? Do you have any good ideas about it?

it is not uncommon for fake universities to be set up to facilitate illegal workers arriving and entering a country on a student visa.
The 'students' are not so innocent as the more often than not are aware that it is a fake.

The onus is on the student to do the research first, so they are responsible.
It is like the fake recruiters in China who try to get in illegal workers on a Tourist visa.
it is the responsibility of the worker to check that the 'employer' is legitimate - not too difficult as there are many ex-pat forums that expose the fake Chinese employers online.

Some of the students and parents always want to get or do something in the illegal ways in China. I think it is a lesson for them. Anyone who become adult should be responsible for what they do.

A report on the arrests indicated that the intent was to flush out the methods of criminal networks behind visa fraud and catch students who would participate in a scheme knowing it to be fraudulent.

This sends a message to those would profit from and damage the integrity and reputation of legitimate foreign students.

It seems like a sting operation would be illegal: there are laws against entrapment in America (and, supposedly, other countries who conduct stings). In fact, many debate the ethical concerns of entrapment.
Entrapment, by definition: "A law enforcement or government agent induces a person to commit a criminal offense s/he otherwise would not commit." Pundits further argue that such operations are generally discouraged and, in some jurisdictions, illegal.
One could see America's sting operation as an act of racial/ethnic bias because it was specifically directed at people of other nations. In fact, there are hundreds of 'universities' where one can buy a degree - the right amount of money will get you a bachelors', a masters', or even a doctorate, but those university scams are seemingly left alone.
However, with America's current climate of fear and xenophobia, it is easy to understand that the government would want to purge all other nationalities/ethnicities in any way they can, even if it is morally reprehensible and borderline illegal.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
