Senator Chuck Grassley asked the Secretary of Homeland Security and the DHS Inspector General to look into “whistleblower” charges of improper influence by senior USCIS leaders in benefits adjudication reform.
AILA President David Leopold responded to the news on the AILA Leadership Blog, stating in part, “If Grassley really wants to get a picture of USCIS visa approval policies, he should file a couple of visa petitions with USCIS himself and see what happens....The truth, if Grassley is interested, is that a ‘culture of no’ continues to poison too many USCIS adjudications.”
