India condemns US for radio-tagging duped students

A protest against the California-based Tri-Valley University near the US Consulate in Hyderabad on 28 January 2011 Hyderabad has seen angry protests over the weekend

India has condemned US authorities for tagging Indian students who, it says, were duped by a fake university.

External Affairs Minister SM Krishan said Indian students were "not criminals" and that radio collars put around their ankles must be removed.

US authorities have shut down the Tri-Valley University near San Francisco, accusing it of an immigration fraud.

The university has more than 1,500 students and reports say nearly 95% of them are from India.

Most of the students are reported to be from the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and many of them now face deportation.

In the state capital, Hyderabad, members of the All India Students' Federation have demonstrated against the Tri-Valley University near the US consulate.

"We demand that the US government initiate severe action against those officials responsible for this inhuman act," Mr Krishna told reporters in the southern city of Bangalore on Sunday.

"Indian students are not criminals. The radio collars should immediately be removed," he said.

"We have conveyed to the US authorities that the students, most of who are victims themselves, must be treated fairly and reasonably," the ministry said in a statement.

The students have been forced to wear radio collars around their ankles so that the US authorities can keep track of their movements.

"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

Andhra is scam central. In the 80s it used to be a different state - Gujarat - but they have mended their ways.

I read the article, but it is too vague to gauge what is really going on. Is it a fake university set up to use fraud so Indians can illegally immigrate or did these students get ripped off financially thinking they were going to attend a legit university?

It's a fake university selling student visas to students that don't want to bother with attending classes.

In other words...the Indian government needs to back off. These students are complicit with this scam along with the university. They deserve to get ankle bracelets until deported.

The latest is Tri-Valley University (TVU) in Pleasanton, California, near San Francisco — raided by ICE agents and shut down last week. The raid included a sting operation on school founder, Susan Su. Federal prosecutors say TVU wasn't a school at all, but a scheme to defraud the government — and it could be the biggest of its kind.

At TVU, agents were hard-pressed to find students at all — or faculty. Opened in 2008, TVU listed on its website classes supposedly taught by highly educated professionals in medicine, engineering, and law. But of all the named faculty members contacted by Fox News, none had ever taught a class at TVU or even seen the school, nor were they aware their names were listed on TVU's website.

Although TVU founder Su denies any wrongdoing, claiming the school is legitimate, the evidence against her is mounting. According to court filings, the school listed a single Sunnyvale address for almost all the students. Economic Times for January 26 reported that the university is said to have 1,555 students — 95 percent of whom are Indian nationals. Though they were registered for courses and lived in California on paper, they were actually working illegally in other parts of the country.

Funny how the BBC article left out all the pertinent information, but instead made it appear as if the mean old Americans were harassing and persecuting these poor unfortunate students. The BBC also made it appear as if the Indian government had some sort of legitimate gripe, but ,in fact, their citizens are lucky to get ankle bracelets rather than the detainment they richly deserve before being deported for committing fraud. I hope someone from the State Departments tells the Indian government to STFU and keep its nose out of our internal affairs. Especially when its citizens come here under fraudulent intent to blatantly break our laws.

This is yet another example of Left leaning media leaving out the facts to deceive the public and spin a story to suit its bias. This is more propaganda than real and accurate reporting of the news. The BBC should be ashamed.
