The US L-1 visa is an intra-company transfer visa only.
It can only legally be used by a company to bring a foreign employee of that same company into the US on a work visa.
Any other use is totally illegal.
But India Inc “global staffing agencies” are using the L-1 visa to bring in foreign workers and then place them at client companies.
That’s visa fraud.
DHS, Trump, DOJ silent, as usual.
In 2003 Senator Diane Feinstein testified before Congress about how illegal use of L-1s should be stopped. “And how do they get into the country so easily” she asked?
Simple: India Inc staffing companies fly them in with impunity.
And there is no numerical limit on L-1 visa entry per year.
