Study Shows Increased Denial of Immigration Cases Without Changes in the Law

The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) released a study that contains some surprising results regarding the denial and request for evidence (RFE) rate of L-1, H-1B, and O-1A Visas.  Despite no change in the laws or regulations, there has been a sharp increase in the number of denials and RFEs, in the instance of L-1B Visas for example, upwards of 90% of applications are either denied or delayed for RFEs. This prevents skilled immigrants from coming to the U.S. to help stir economic growth and it costs domestic employers millions while applications are delayed. With this new information, it is more important than ever to hire an experienced immigration attorney to handle your visa matters. To read the report, click here.
