Criticism: A Hotbed of Immigration Fraud

Some statistics, however, are readily available. In 2008, for example, USCIS conducted an H-1B Benefit Fraud and Compliance Assessment.20 Based on the study, USCIS concluded that 21 percent of the visas granted involved fraudulent applications. Fraud included falsification of educational backgrounds and of skill levels.21 Much of the fraud, as well as unfair and illegal treatment of visa applicants, is attributed to brokers who, in placing foreigners with jobs in the United States, do the applications for visas on behalf of workers.22

Fraud levels are high in art (29 percent of applications) and highest in “accounting, human resources and advertising” (42 percent). Of thirteen categories USCIS defined, though, computer professionals came in third, with a fraud rate USCIS determined to be 27 percent. The rates in other fields are low (medicine and health at 10 percent, education at 9 percent). Moreover, indications are that fraud is nonexistent in other areas (mathematics and physical sciences or social sciences at 0 percent), although the samples of applicants in those categories are small.
