WASHINGTON (AP) — One of three college students arrested Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombings case was allowed to return to the United States from Kazakhstan in January despite not having a valid student visa, a federal law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

Authorities charged the student — a friend and classmate of one of the men accused of setting off the deadly explosions — with helping after the attacks to remove a laptop and backpack from the bombing suspect's dormitory room before the FBI searched it.

The government acknowledged that U.S. Customs and Border Protection was unaware that the student was no longer in school when he was let back into the United States.

The disclosure was another instance of possible lapses by the federal government in the months before the Boston bombings. The Obama administration earlier this week announced an internal review of how U.S.

You think anyone in the Obama administration will get the hint that our lax boarder controls might have something to do with the Boston Bombing incident.

Maybe just maybe if we had tighter imagration policies we wouldn’t have as much trouble with Islamic Terrorism .

Yah; I said it! ;)

This is why we need comprehensive immigration enforcement.

There isn’t one family member or friend who doesn’t have an arrest record or is a major failure. This is what we’re welcoming into the US.

Think there is just one in Boston, maybe two in NYC, maybe one in Florida, possibly two in Miami, and Chicago? (None in Detroit, of course, too smart to go there). Americans are screwed because politicians have sold this country for power and votes.

The foreign students are paying OUT OF STATE TUITION. It's the illegals who get to pay IN STATE TUITION.

It's pretty clear to me the one fellow there quit attending classes so he could get his visa cancelled, and he'd turn into an IN STATE TUITION ELIGIBLE STUDENT.

The current immigration policies of a number of states (the instate/outofstate thing is as much an element of immigration policy as is getting busted for driving drunk and killing people and not having an American driver's license) are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE

Apparently HomeLand Security have corrected the Security issues with foreign students visa's dropping thru the cracks.....bringing it into real-time.

And so....if this is the case we can expect those who are “illegally” here will be found out easily and deported ASAP?......likely many will be on the run as word of this gets out fast to students.

Would not surprise me that this was his plan....why pay full tuition as a legal student when you can get in state tuition as an illegal alien

Here’s a larger problem of... Little known colleges taking foreign student’s money in exchange for enabling them to work in the US.

The university listed “553 students as living in a single two-bedroom apartment”..... near the college;... in fact, students were spread out across the country, from Texas to Illinois to Maryland.

Legal filings called Tri-Valley a “sham university” that admitted and collected tuition from foreign students but didn’t require them to attend class.

Many students allegedly worked full-time, low-level retail jobs—in one case, at a 7-Eleven in New Jersey—that were “passed off as career training” so they could be employed while on student visas.

Here in north Jersey a lot of Indian students work at gas stations and convenience stores owned by relatives; I’m surprised at how frank & trusting they are divulging this to strangers.

“It’s a simple student violation of their visas” so says the Boston immigration lawyer. Wonder how much those lawyers are paid via taxes, pretty sure the immigrants can’t afford such representation.

I didn’t see where it talked of locating the others. Will have to go back and read it again!

Actually they are not fine they are far to accommodating to chain migration.

One illegal comes here gets citizenship here by way of an amnesty and bang he can bring his relatives here and then they can apply for citizenship and so the snowball rolls.

Suddenly we have great masses of unskilled immigrants with no discernable means of support other than we the taxpayers.

The Two from K-stan are from wealthy families one of the attorneys is from Madison Avenue Firm in NY City...one of those “Super Lawyers”.

The other Attorney from maryland...Worked in US Government...politics etc. Founder of the firm .

The third student comes from single parent home..(Mom only)
His Attorney is from a large Not for Profit Organization....I couldn’t find much about him on line. But there’s plenty on the other two big shots.

So no doubt the wealthy parents are paying.

Just goes to show again...money does matter.

Well of course ‘money matters’ - my all time favorite line regarding money:

money may not buy you happiness, but it sure buys you options.

Thanks for the info, honestly, I’m so disgusted with all of it today. I will go read and review this all when I’m not feeling quite so dang po’d about it all.

Not the law... some activist judge's interpretation of them. IF they enforced the 1986 amnesty laws... this turd world garbage would self deport. If they implemented the secure border law of 2006, our borders would be well on their way to becoming secure. DO NOT buy the lie that our immigration laws are broken... they most certainly are not. They HAVE NEVER been enforced. I do agree with you about the current law... it could be made stronger and better... especially the anchor baby crap and yes... they could be improved but the reason that we are where we are is that the laws we have go ignored... just like current Gun Control laws. 15,000 felons applied to buy guns last year... a violation of law... 4 were prosecuted. THAT is what I am talking about.

I remember a few years back one cow went down with mad cow disease. Within 24 hours it was being reported the USDA knew the herd that the cow came from when it was born, pretty much everything about it. It had been raised in Canada and import to the USA.

We can track cattle better than humans....

I beg to differ.

We need to radically overhaul our immigration laws to promote the kind of immigration we want and need - not what the Politically Correct crowd demands.

Long experience has proved admitting Muslims has been a mistake. The tenets and world outlook of Islam (Sharia) are simply inimical to our Constitution and American system of law and justice. Islam is a political and cultural system as well as a "religion".

We prohibited Communists and other radicals who sought to overthrow the Constitution from entry into this country or hold sensitive positions in our government and military for many years. It was done for self-preservation, and was successful in preventing massive subversion. Political Correctness has succeeded in intimidating us from doing the same sensible policy with Muslims. It has to do with self-preservation, not bigotry.

All Muslims do not seek the overthrow of our Constitutional system, but many do. We should restrict their entry and emigration into the United States. No good has come from it, and none can. It has been nothing but trouble for us and any other country that has done it.

Interesting artice, thanks.

Speaking of ‘visas’. Our county Sheriff told me that a couple of illegal aliens they found armed, guarding cartel pot plantations in our public forests actually had US issued green cards for ‘agriculture jobs’.

All this begs to ask who are the people sitting behind the desks letting these people in despite the laws we have in place? .....And are they being prosecuted for it?

You can make all the laws possible.. but if the people sitting on the front line wave foreigners in anyway, then in it won’t make one iotta of difference what the laws are.

Agreed. And their excuses are so phony. I could handle an exit system by myself. Give me a file, calendar and a computer. Day comes the alien is supposed to be gone and he hasn’t check in, he goes on the internet with a $500 reward and gets deported forever!!

Yep!...It could be so much easier then it is.....but as usual the government makes it complicated so they can hire more people to Not follow the laws nobody understands.

I think many of these people simply make a gut decision and or get paid off to let people in. Sorta like the SAudi’s use their heavy hand on Washington.

Read the thread...thanks.

Foreigners know there are miles of “Conveyor Belts” in and out of this country...and in many cases their own people are operating the controls.

.... They step on and off it at will, for there are no consequences for doing so.

.... If sent back to their countries, at our cost, they not only step back onto the conveyor belt... but they arrange “vacations” back to their own home country by timing their capture to correspond accordingly.

First of all... I agree that our laws can be improved but our current laws... if they were followed and enforced... much of what you talk about about would be dealt with. Read our laws... they are supposed to stop all of this garbage. These current laws were created in other amnesty deals and these current laws were supposed to stop all of the problems that we see. They are not being enforced by the fed and any state that dares to enforce it is attacked by the fed.
