US Immigration Fraud Has Now Become Common

Executive Summary

  • All of the foreign worker visa programs are infused with fraud.
  • Overall, US immigration fraud, either supported by companies or by individuals, is common.


Immigration fraud is being perpetrated by both foreign workers as well as enormous multinationals. Both the claims of the skills being offered H1-B and other foreign worker visas are exaggerated, and the claims that there is a skill shortage in the US is also false. We cover this in the article How Low Hire Rates Disprove the IT Labor Shortage Used to Justify H1-Bs.

Immigration Fraud From Multiple Dimensions

Immigration fraud is prevalent in the foreign worker visa programs, in illegal immigration, student visas and marriage visas, the list goes on and on. One example is found in the program “90 Day Fiance.”

This video shows a situation where the man from the Dominican Republic did not inform his fiance that his mother was an immigration lawyer and has a website that advertises how she can get people in the United States through marriage. People becoming US citizens through marriage used to be far rarer. However, it has increased in commonality. 

This topic of illegal immigration is covered in the book Mexifornia.

While it is true that no one knows exactly how many are here illegally from Mexico and Latin America, estimates of eleven or twelve million illegal aliens — with half a million to one million arriving per year are often accepted as reasonable by both sides of the debate. The result of such staggering numbers is that aliens now are not just a presence in California or the American Southwest, but frequently appear at Home Depot parking lots in the Midwest, emergency rooms in New England, and construction sites in the Carolinas.

There is a conception that anything that needs to be done, any lie that needs to be told, be it lying about one’s skills, lying about one’s interest in being married to a particular US citizen, lying about one’s status in the country. Anything is acceptable as long as one can gain entry into the US.


Multinationals that engage in immigration fraud often make it seem as if they are behaving legitimately, and they would most likely not like to be viewed the same way as the example shown in this video. However, just as with low-end marriage immigration rackets — such as the one shown in this video, they are doing the same thing. US immigration fraud is now commonplace. Secondly, as the number of recent immigrants and the number of illegal immigrants or recently illegal immigrants increases, there is a concept presented that no illegal immigrants should be deported. This would then naturally logically extend to those that engage in immigration fraud, as there becomes a dilution of the distinction between legal immigration and illegal immigration and immigration fraud.
