L-1b site visits are nothing new however, a number of sources are now reporting that L-1b site visits are occurring as part of the adjudicatory process of a petition seeking an extension or an amendment. The Service is essentially conducting an evidentiary fact finding mission prior to issuing a decision. The problem with this approach is that there is no context, no safeguards, and no assurances that negative information will be disclosed to the petitioner thereby providing an opportunity for rebuttal or challenge. The concept of due process and a fair review of the evidence in light of existing law seems to be too often a forgotten concept in immigration adjudications. When asked for comment, a USCIS representative stated, “We may do investigations at any point, And going further into detail could compromise our tactics in maintaining the integrity of our immigration system.” So much for transparency and fairness.
