Federal investigators discovered fraud in more than 20 percent of applications they examined in which employers were requesting H-1B visas to hire foreign professionals in the U.S., a finding they called a “significant vulnerability.”

In a report released late last year, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service cited one especially egregious case in which an employer petitioned for a business-development analyst position but later told investigators the worker would be doing laundry and maintaining washing machines.

  1. Great. We’re importing laundry people. Kill the program entirely. The US does not need to import workers of any kind. We outsource enough jobs already and have our hands full with illegal immigrants draining our state budgets.
