Fang v. Director United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement

In 2013, the feds create a fake university, the University of Northern New Jersey. The sting ends in 2016, having secured 22 arrests related to brokering fraudulent student visas. The feds revoke the visas of some 500 foreign students who “enrolled” at the school. (At oral argument, the feds say the students are innocent victims, but later, “for reasons known only to the Government,” change their tune.) Third Circuit: The students’ class action against the feds should not have been dismissed.
