Lawsuit Exposes Deep Corruption in H-1B Job Outsourcing Program

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is holding a third lottery for H-1B visas this year after U.S.-based Indian managers corruptly sold multiple tickets to fellow Indians, according to a lawsuit by Asian job seekers.
“There is literally no [DHS] follow up to fake filings that we can ascertain, and no effort is made by [DHS to] weed out folks who have filed multiple applications with multiple employers,” said Charles Kuck, an Atlanta lawyer who helped file the lawsuit.
“This is a giant loophole and one which is clearly subject to manipulation at the expense of legitimate applicants,” including his Asian clients, he told Breitbart News.
A November 22 legal filing said the agency:
…selects different registrations during each round of selection, but keeps selecting [duplicative applications from] the same individuals. This, in turn, leads to the need for [DHS] to conduct supplemental rounds of selections in order to meet the annual [85,000] limitations.
The third lottery was announced on November 19 by DHS’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency.
The fraud is being conducted by U.S.-based Indian companies who work with Indian graduates to bundle multiple fraudulent visa applications into the job lottery, according to the June lawsuit by hundreds of Asians who are also trying to get U.S. college-graduate jobs and valuable green cards vis the H-B outsourcing program.
“Brazenly, these entities advertised all over social media and H-1B forums on the internet, pitching to prospective H-1B applicants that the odds would be in their favor with multiple registrations,” the lawsuit said. It continued:
For example, one entity, which calls itself “Fluxtek Solutions,” advertised that they “will place you on H-1 lottery from multiple companies so that the probability of picking cap process is high.” … Fluxtek Solutions was also promising its customers “100% job Guaranteed with H1B Visa Sponsorship.”
Fluxtek did not respond to a call from Breitbart News.
DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas suggested November 4 he would rewrite some of the rules for the H-1B Program.
I find some of the highest skilled processes to be in dire need of re-engineering. The random lottery [for H-1B visas] to me is not an optimal way of serving the market needs. And … we’ve got to do a really good job of developing homegrown high skilled talent.
Nearly all of the visa reforms that were slowly imposed by President Donald Trump have been reversed by Mayorkas and his allies. ...
