I came across the transcript of Indian National with H1B Visa deported at Port of Entry at Chicago recently (Sep 2016).
The CBP Officer found fake resume with 7 years work experience, when the H1B Visa holder was a recent college graduate on F1 Visa and started working form 2015 at a consulting company.
I recorded a video based on the conversation between the CBP officer and the H1B visa holder. Watch the video below to learn more about the interaction between the H1B Visa worker and CBP officer.
H1B Visa Deported at Port of Entry – Video
Some of the members were questioning if CBP officer have the authority to search someone’s mobile phone? As far I know, they have permisison to search the the contents of the phone and your belongings at the Port of Entry.
There’s a program called Border Security: America’s Front Line. Watch the first episode from 2016. You will get a gist of this.
Are you worried about Deportation?
Here’s my guess (and I could be wrong).
H1B workers without any questionable background shouldn’t have worry about deportation. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Here’s a couple of blog posts that were published recently
- I Went To A Consultant For Training. They Taught “How To Create A Fake Resume”
I’m sure anyone looking for H1B Visa would be aware of “Fake Resume, Desi Consulting companies and how things work with consulting firms when students go to them to find a job on OPT.
Should we call this person as unlucky or it was about time something like this happened?
I have heard stories of H1B Visa workers being denied entry at the port of entry for various reasons.
If you may remember, there was similar experience when several F1 Visa students were deported. One CBP officer found WhatsApp messages of student asking for Part-Time jobs.
Be your own judge. You know what is right and wrong and the consequence of being wrong.
Some of the readers are questioning the authenticity of this transcript. I would be more worried about what happens if someone would get caught, than worrying about if this getting H1B Visa deportation at port of entry is fake vs fact. I highly doubt if the person is going to come forward to give an interview to the media to accept that he used fake resume. Would you do that? Probably not.
