USCIS Fraud Detection and National Security Site Visits: 2017 Update 9.PDF)
USCIS created the Office of Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) in 2004, to detect fraud in the immigration system, and to ensure that benefits are not granted to individuals who are a threat to national security or public safety. The Fraud Fee of $500 paid by employers with each initial H-1B or L petition funds FDNS programs. FDNS also conducts assessments in the R-1 program. As part of these assessments programs, FDNS officers collect information during site visits to verify information pertaining to petitions that are pending and/or already approved. These site visits have usually been random in the past. Now, the Trump Administration has announced more vetting, resulting in USCIS announcing more targeted site visits.
