USCIS Releases H-1B Fraud Documents for AILA

Pursuant to the holding in AILA v. DHS, filed in June 2010, USCIS released unredacted four remaining contested documents in a FOIA lawsuit brought by the American Immigration Council’s Legal Action Center (LAC) and Steptoe & Johnson LLP on behalf of AILA. The documents describe “fraud indicators” that result in greater scrutiny of certain H-1B applications by USCIS immigration officers.
