Distraught libs shriek over ICE ‘entrapment’ scheme, but program was started under Obama in 2015

Triggered leftists like Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Alyssa Milano appear to be blaming President Trump for a fake “ICE university” set up to identify illegal aliens. However, the fake ICE university program was actually started under Barack Obama in 2015. 

Democratic activist Ben Spielberg (a blogger at the left-wing Huffington Post) remarked:  “This is an Obama-era entrapment program. It started in 2015. ICE also did the same thing in New Jersey under Obama, opening a fake college in 2013 and arresting immigrant students in 2016.”

Predictably, unhinged leftist grievance mongers jumped to conclusions about the Obama-created sting operation and slammed President Trump as racist.

Fake Native American Elizabeth Warren tweeted: “This is cruel and appalling.”

A Rolling Stone writer scoffed: “Leave it to the Trump administration to use a fake university—this time, to trick immigrants into forking over cash for fake classes and invalidating their legal visas in the process. They ended up arrested by ICE. How is this anything but entrapment?”

Tax-evading leftist actress Alyssa Milano screeched: “OH MY GOD.”

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez chirped: “Abolish ICE.”

About 250 students were arrested by ICE under this fake-university scheme since January 2019, according to the Detroit Free Press. Most of them were from India.

Moreover, eight recruiters who worked for the fake ICE university (called Farmington University) were criminally charged after pleading guilty to recruiting students:

  • Barath Kakireddy
  • Suresh Kandala
  • Santosh Sama
  • Avinash Thakkallapally
  • Aswanth Nune
  • Naveen Prathipati
  • Prem Rampeesa.

An ICE spokesperson said “nearly 80% [of students] were granted voluntary departure and departed the United States.”

About half of those students “have either filed for some sort of relief or are contesting their removals with Executive Office for Immigration Review,” ICE officials said.

Democratic socialist Anthony Clark slammed the Left and their media minions for blaming President Trump for the same policies that Barack Obama quietly carried out — with very little pushback from activists now virulently opposing Trump.

“Many conveniently point to Trump as the root cause, yet the present crisis is a culmination of decades of U.S.-financed violence, unjust economic policies, and the devastating effects of climate change,” Clark told Law & Crime.

Race-baiting leftist politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar claim that enforcing longstanding federal immigration laws (that were passed decades ago by both Democrats and Republicans) are racist.

However, Jeh Johnson — a Trump-hating Democrat —  clapped back at the left-wing media and members of his own party, saying the overhyped leftist talking point of “children in cages” did not start the day President Trump took office.

“Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages — whatever you want to call them — were not invented on Jan. 20, 2017, OK?” Johnson said.

Johnson also slammed Democrats’ proposals to decriminalize illegal border crossings, saying that “is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders.”
