US Receives More Than 5000 Complaints On H1-B Frauds

Last three months had seen a large number of H1B rejections and extension denials, like never before and here is the latest update from the dedicated email helpline that was launched by Trump's administration last year to report H1B and frauds. More than 5000 complaints have been received by a federal agency on this dedicated email, reporting H1B frauds. This number is as of May 21 this year, according to Philip Smith, a USCIS spokesperson.

As per the regulations of Donald Trump signed "Buy American, Hire American", a Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS) established email addresses dedicated to receive information about H1B frauds and abuse, be it from American workers or others.

USCIS did not reveal any further information like the nature of the complaints or the companies involved or the victims' countries. The fraud detection directorate can resolve background check information that popup during the processing of immigration benefit petitions.

The US congress has a cap of 65000 H1B visas a year, besides the 20000 H1B visas to those who got masters and higher education from a US institute.
