USCIS Announces "New" Measures Against "H-1B Fraud". The Next Step In Trump's Nationalist Immigration Agenda? Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
On April 3, significantly the first day of receiving H-1B cap subject petitions for the anticipated but not yet announced lottery for the 2018 fiscal year, USCIS instead of providing more information about the lottery or the processing of these petitions, issued an announcement entitled

Putting American Workers First: USCIS Announces Further Measures to Detect H-1B Visa Fraud and Abuse

The announcement is on the home page of the USCIS website.

While the actual details of the announcement may come as good news to thousands of law-abiding smaller and medium sized employers who may sponsor a few key H-1B employers each year, by focusing "fraud" investigations on the larger "H-1B dependent" companies and on the staffing agencies who use up a large percentage of these visas, the real message is in the above headline.

Continuing with its policy of branding Muslim immigrants as potential terrorists, as in the Muslim ban executive orders; and stigmatizing primarily Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants as criminals by publishing lists of criminal detainers refused by Sanctuary jurisdictions, and threatening to cut off their funding under INA Section 1373; the Trump administration is now continuing with its white nationalist anti-immigrant agenda by labeling high-skilled H-1B workers, most of whom are from South Asia, as agents of fraud who are "stealing" American jobs.

What does this say about the future of racial and religious equality for immigration policy in Donald Trump's America? Are we heading back toward the "Nordics"-only immigration regime of the 1924 Johnson-Reed Immigration Act faster than anyone except Stephen Bannon, Jeff Sessions and other Trump advisers who have supported that law could imagine?
