H-1B Admissions at Newark Airport

Recently it was reported that H-1B nonimmigrants from India were being denied admission to the US upon arriving at Newark International Airport. These individuals were questioned about who they would be working for, who would pay their salaries, and what their job duties would be. In some cases the individuals would be subjected to expedited removal and visa cancellation.

The New Jersey Chapter of AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) inquired about these reports at a meeting withCBP (Customs and Border Protection). CBP has said that this is the result of investigations into fraud, and denied that there was any discrimination at work.
