NFAP Report Confirms High Denial Rates of L-1 & H-1B Petitions at USCIS

The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) issued a report analyzing data obtained from USCIS that shows a high rate of denials and RFE issuance in petitions for L-1 intracompany transferees and H-1B professionals. The report states, “Data indicate much of the increase in denials involves Indian-born professionals and researchers. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services adjudicators have demonstrated a capacity to keep skilled foreign nationals out of the United States by significantly increasing denials, along with often time-consuming Requests for Evidence (RFE), despite no change in the law or relevant regulations between 2008 and 2011.”  To read the detailed report, click here.
