Are the H1-b Visas of Gulen Charter Schools about to face hard times?

Off in a small corner of the immigration policy world there is an intriguing side-show – it is a battle which pits one group of conservatives against another in a fascinating contest that the mainstream media has all but ignored.
In one corner there is a player as reactionary as they come, the Islamic president/dictator of Turkey; in the other is a conservative Islamic religious leader, another Turk, and his allies in the American charter school movement.
Turkey's authoritarian's ruler is Recep Erdogan; he is at loggerheads with his former ally, Fethullah Gulen, the self-exiled leader of an Islamic cult that is devoted to undoing the reforms of modern Turkey's George Washington, Kamal Ataturk. Gulen's followers in the U.S. have created a series of charter schools which use public school moneys, via staff extortions, to support the cult's activities. The Gulen schools, which have also used political contributions to shore up their position, are charters, and, as such, are sheltered by conservatives promoting charters generally. Erdogan has said that he wants Gulen extradited from Pennsylvania to Turkey because of his alleged ties to the failed coup in Turkey.
Why is this of any interest to immigration policy types?
In spite of the presence of tens, perhaps hundreds, of thousands of unemployed U.S.-trained teachers, Gulen's schools continue to use local tax funds to secure H-1B visas for, and to provide wages for, teachers from Turkey, including in a few cases English teachers, as we have reported previously.
Why are the Gulen schools so interested in recruiting Turkish teachers (and often paying them more than U.S. teachers in the same schools)? To some extent it is a Tammany Hall sort of nepotism – let's use public funds to help our landsmen – but there is another apparent motive. According to a long, detailed, and stinging report by LA Weekly, there is a highly organized, systematic shake-down of Turkish teachers to benefit Gulen cult organizations. The name of one of Gulen's collectors in one of his school systems, the amounts raised, and their transportation, in cash, to cult meetings are all spelled out in detail.
While efforts have been made in Georgia and in southern California to shut down some of the Gulen schools (for their hiring and financing malpractices), no one has been indicted, at least not yet.
Meanwhile, the Gulen schools have been investigated by the FBI for years, newspapers have printed multiple exposes, a state auditor caught a Gulen operation in Oklahoma obtaining more than $4 million via grossly inflated rent charges from public funds, and an excellent documentary film, "Killing Ed," has been produced on all this corruption.
Why, with all this evidence, has no one been charged with anything?
I asked this question of Robert Amsterdam, a Canadian lawyer retained by the government of Turkey to look into these matters; he said he was puzzled too, and suggested that (1) charter schools have a lot of support, particularly from conservatives, and (2) maybe the CIA was discouraging any federal action.
In addition, I think there may be a hesitation in some journalistic circles (a whiff of political correctness, if you will) to examine a system which relates to a particular nationality, that of the Turks.
Further, I think the facts are so hard to believe -- U.S. public school moneys being used to fund intra-Islamic squabbles in Turkey – that reporters are reluctant to tackle them, valid though they appear to be.
Change Coming? All of this may be about to change because of one of President-elect Trump's appointments. According to the Daily Caller:
An intelligence consulting firm founded by retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Donald Trump's top military adviser, was recently hired as a lobbyist by an obscure Dutch company with ties to Turkey's government and its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Further, we know that President Erdogan has joined Donald Trump at one or more hotel opening ceremonies in Turkey; this was well before the presidential campaign. So Gen. Flynn, who is known to be opposed to Gulen, and who is soon to be the National Security Adviser to the President, might well let it be known in government circles that he has no opposition at all to Gulen school administrators being indicted.
That, combined with the wealth of evidence on these schools' finances, might just change matters.

Second Gulen private school to sell Amity School of Brooklyn, NY where Magnolia's Varol Gurler taught

Is money tight in the USA for the Gulen Network? Amity School the Gulen operated private school in Brooklyn, NY .  The Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) has put up one of its private schools in Brooklyn, New York for sale due to economic problems, reports said on Wednesday.
The terror group’s U.S.-based schools have frequently been scrutinized for a number of irregularities and have been raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).FETÖ has put up its the Amity School on sale due to economic problems while FBI investigate the terror group’s US-based schools
The Amity School, which was put up on sale via Cushman & Wakefield Company, is located in a 7-square-meter field in Brooklyn, New York. No details about the private school’s sale price are yet to be mentioned on the sale advert.
According to information posted on the official website of the school, 256 students have been receiving education since 1999.
FETÖ runs a global network of charter and private schools, from Africa to Central Asia but mostly in the U.S. to gain income and impose its ideas to the students.
Charter and private schools linked to FETÖ in the U.S. are facing several probes by FBI in four states, although the FBI is quiet about the progress of the probes, which is reportedly focused on shady business practices by the charter and private school chains.
The schools in the U.S., some of which have changed names over time, were opened in the late 1990s and beginning of the 2000s. Around 60,000 students attend the schools annually.
FETÖ’s schools in the U.S. are usually gathered under umbrella organizations and are managed through foundations. As an example, there are 46 schools — all under the name “Harmony” in Texas, 30 schools under the name “Concept” in and around Ohio, as well as Magnolia.
While the judicial processes continue over FETÖ’s schools in the U.S., the American public has also started to express more doubts about the schools, according to U.S. media reports.
Residing in Pennsylvania since 1999, FETÖ’s leader Fetullah Gülen is the man who controls these schools and the $500 million annual income.
FETÖ[Office1] is the terror group not only behind the failed July 15 coup attempt but a string of crimes including two previous attempts to overthrow democratically-elected government in Turkey, money laundering, sham trials and imprisonment of its foes through its infiltrators within the police and judiciary systems, as well as the state apparatus.
Several countries, including Chad, Guinea, Iraq, Pakistan, Rwanda and Somalia, took action following the July 15 coup attempt regarding FETÖ schools in their respective countries to be transferred to the Turkish Maarif Foundation

Amity School of  Brooklyn, NY is the second private Gulen school to sell the first was Putnam School of Science in CT.
