2019年实地调查总数较前年增长近三倍,实地调查不再是说说而已

December 10, 2019

最新的新闻报道证实,美国移民和海关执法局(ICE)在2019财年持续加强工作场所的实地审查。根据《华尔街日报》的统计数据,截止9月30日,ICE在2019财年度一共进行了6812例实地调查,尽管该数量比2018财年减少了36例,但却比2017和2016财年增加了5000例调查。

 

加强工作场所的实地调查一直是特朗普政府的主要目标之一。ICE曾于2017年10月宣布,每年度实地调查的次数将至少增加三倍。在ICE发起“在雇主之间建立合规文化”的计划之后,2018年的调查活动显著增加。2019财年的数据表明,该机构一直致力于实现政府对工作场所实地调查的目标。

 

实地调查目的

 

移民局实地调查的目的在于验证H-1B和L-1这两类常见工作签证信息的真实性。根据移民律师的报告,显著增长的实地调查行为可能是受特朗普在2017年4月签署的“Buy American, Hire American”行政令的影响,该行政令要求联邦政府保障美国工人相较于外籍员工有优先雇佣的权利。

 

调查员进行实地调查的内容有:

  • 验证签证申请时的信息,包括一些支持性材料;

  • 验证支持工作签证申请的公司确实存在;

  • 检查支持申请的公司的公共记录和信息;

  • 对工作场所进行照相;

  • 检查文件,问询相关人员确认签证受益人的工作地点、实际工作地、工作时长、薪资和工作内容;

  • 和签证受益人当面交谈问话。

 

实地调查结果

 

在实地调查后,如果FDNS的官员认为该雇主或雇员对公司信息、雇员工作内容或资质、或任何和签证申请有关的实质性材料没有如实呈报,那么这将可能导致反欺诈调查的启动,并最终可能导致签证被撤销,还将对该公司所有外籍员工的签证均造成影响。

 

如果必要的话,该调查可能递交给ICE进行管辖,并可能会导致对雇主和雇员的民事及刑事处罚。如果雇员被认定为移民欺诈,则将永久被拒绝入境。因此对于雇主和雇员来说,确保所有的签证申请是准确和真实的,并且始终符合签证申请的各项要求十分重要。
