Stop EB1 C ABUSE and FRAUDULENT filing

Sign this to stop the abusive loophole to get Permanent resident status via EB1 C

Respected President & Congress members,



We would like to appraise you of a particular area of United States Immigration law that has a huge potential of fraud and misrepresentation along with being unfairly biased in favor of the people who choose to abuse it. We are talking about the Employment-based first preference category EB1C (International Managers). As you are already probably aware, the requirements for eligibility in that category is just a year of overseas managerial experience in a company that conducts business in both US and abroad. We are sure you will agree that compared to the fair and stringent requirements of EB1A (persons of exceptional ability) and EB1B (outstanding researchers), this is a rather simple qualification to prove. Moreover it opens up avenues for fraud and misrepresentation particularly by overseas companies doing business in USA to unfairly take advantage of this simple requirement.



The following example illustrates the fallacy:

Person A (originally from India) has a US masters degree in a STEM field and works for a company in a managerial job that requires a Masters degree and a few years of experience. This person can only file in EB2 category which is badly backlogged.



Person B (originally from India) has a bachelors degree in a STEM field and works for a company in a job that requires a Bachelors degree and a few years of experience. This person can only file in EB3 category which is even more severely backlogged.



In contrast, Person C (originally from India) works as some manager (over a year) in an Indian software company that also conducts business in the USA. This person can file in EB1C and will get preference over Persons A & B. Please note that for Person C, educational qualifications are irrelevant as there is no such requirement and moreover they are determined by the employing company. So potentially a person with a high school diploma can qualify in that category, not to mention that the prospect of frauds opens up exponentially. Contrast this with EB1A (persons of exceptional ability) and EB1B (outstanding researchers). In terms of immigration preference, person C is considered at par with a Nobel Prize worthy scholar (EB1A) or a renowned Researcher in a STEM field (EB1B). I am sure you are able to see the fallacy easily.



With the recent measures taken to curtail fraud in programs like H1B, the perpetrators have increasingly turned to this EB1C category. We would like to request you to kindly take up the matter with the appropriate authorities about this issue and restore some parity in the above categories. Ideally the EB1C category should be abolished or downgraded to a lower preference category.



Request your help with this.

Thanking you in anticipation,



Employment Based Legal Immigrant Community

Being an indian and a H1B employee of a big american IT service company, I have witnessed first hand how EB1C green card is being abused. An employee whose designation is manager or above(there are thousands) is brought to US on either an L1/H1B visa and after spending 6 months in onsite a EB1C GC application is submitted and within an year he/she is GC holder. All this while these so called manager does mundane jobs like micro managing resources, testing, coding etc just like any other employee. To worsen the matter a new kind of abuse is happening where a person whose EB2/EB3 is in process is promoted to manager and sent to canada for a year so that they get 1 year international manager experience(BS) and brought back on a L visa and within GC application is upgraded to EB1C

Eb1 c says Executives or Managers. Perhaps when this law was made, being a manager was a rarity. However, now with so many people in the tech industry, being a manager is easy. Moreover, several Indian companies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro and also some companies like 'Google/McKinsey' have made their employees managers and then transfer them to US. This is a systematic fraud/abuse of the system. The category needs to restrict itself to 'Executives' and for people with years of international experience.

Request you to please stop EB1C fraud by Indian Consulting Companies. They apply for international manager with fake experience under EB1C . Once the employee gets GC he/she leaves the company and joins another company with the same fake experience as these companies pay less salary. What is the use of filing so many EB1C if the employee is not staying in the company. They are just using the loophole. Also requesting to revisit previous EB1C filings from past 5-7 years and see how many they applied under EB1C and how many are still in the same company.

Please STOP EB1C abuse by Indian companies like TCS, COGNIZANT, INFOSYS, WIPRO, TECH MAHINDRA etc, they are not even fit to be managers and misusing the category there are several of them who are in BPO industry and git GC’s in no time under EB1 C category stealing all our jobs and also after 2011 onwards there are so many Indians who are not legit and made through H1B with fake experiences and total mismatch with academic qualifications.

I have seen person A being at dis-advantange in real life. Irrespective of what someone's role in society , putting them in a queue for immigration for 15 years is not the way to go. If you request/give permission for someone to stay in a country for some-time, its best if you gave them the rights after a reasonable time limit. Otherwise people are going to leave. Never mind if they are EB1/EB2/EB3. History will tell how US curbed the rights of immigrants, by putting them in queues based on race and arbitrary criteria.
