Thread: The Behavior of some Muslims in the USA - Part II

  1. #1
    Guest
    Only one of the Middle Eastern students who came to Tucson after a cheating scandal in Tulsa was still attending classes here by the end of 2002, an Immigration and Naturalization Service spokesman said.

    INS officials would not identify any of the dozen or so former students because criminal charges have not been filed.

    Investigators believe the students came to Tucson after being suspended from Tulsa Community College in summer 2001 for violations that should have cost them their student visas and led to deportation hearings.

    Bill Johnston, an INS spokesman in Tucson, confirmed one man from Kuwait faced deportation proceedings after he "fell out of status" at Pima Community College on Oct. 8. College officials said they could not disclose any information without a name.

    Johnston said another former student was deported a year earlier after being caught by a highway patrol officer in Tucson on Oct. 11, 2001, with fraudulent identification, check cashing cards and two shotguns.

    Johnston said appropriate agencies were notified, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms took the weapons but no criminal charges were filed.

    Investigators suspect two of the former students may still be living in Tucson on expired student visas, and one may have moved to Phoenix, he said.

    At least two left Tucson and returned on their own to Kuwait, he said, and "others have gone to California, Utah and Florida and we've referred those cases to the appropriate offices."

    Tulsa Community College suspended more than 70 Middle Eastern students in summer 2001 for submitting falsified English proficiency scores, knowingly having their electronic grades altered in violation of their student visas, or both.

    Tulsa officials confirmed in November 2001 that three students then at Pima Community College had attended the Tulsa school, but refused to say whether they had been suspended. Pima College denied admission to a fourth student who wanted to transfer from Tulsa.

    Johnston said it was unusual to have problems with large numbers of students as occurred in Tulsa.

    In November a former Tulsa student was convicted of eight counts of violating the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act in relation to grades that were changed for Middle Eastern students at the school, The Tulsa World reported.

    Tarig Al-Taweel, a 33-year-old Palestinian immigrant, was convicted of acting in concert with former Tulsa Community College registrar's employee Dlorah Jean Hogle, 46, to alter the grades of numerous Middle Eastern students, the World said.
