Senators Call On Administration to Stop Student Visa Fraud at ‘Sham’ Universities – Fox News

Several top U.S. senators are calling on the Obama administration to crack down on so-called “sham universities” which serve as a front for getting foreign nationals into the United States on student visas.

Warning about the danger of criminals and terrorists exploiting this security gap to gain entry into the country, the senators proposed new legislation increasing penalties for those operating the colleges and urged two federal departments overseeing the visa and immigration system to do a better job tracking down fraud.
