M-1 and J-1 Visas for "Students" - severly penalize the schools

Raise the price significanly for those applying for J-1 and M-1 Visas. A very high proportion of those who use those Visas to get into the country have absolutely no intention of ever leaving. We allow these schools to act as their "safe base" to get into the country. Once here some actually do go to school and then they are legally allowed to work. I have seen this happen time and time again. They come in - go to school each quarter and NEVER leave. We make getting a student visa so easy - yet once they are here they are seldom monitored - this has to stop or at least penalize the schools that encourage the students to enter and dont teach.
