Default Policy reversal allows visas & green card apps. denial based on error

Authorities Can Now Deny Visa and Green Card Applications Without Giving Applicants a Chance to Fix Errors

As President Donald Trump wages a vocal battle against illegal immigration, his administration has been working more quietly to cut down on legal pathways to immigrate to the U.S.

On Tuesday, a new policy kicks in, allowing officers with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to outright deny any visa or green card application that is missing evidence or contains an error. Around 7 million people apply every year.
Previously, officers were required by an Obama-era policy to send notices, giving applicants a chance to correct such problems instead of closing the process. Officers can still choose to do so, but they can also opt to skip that step if the application is deemed frivolous.

Without the notices, applicants won’t have the opportunity to intervene before a decision is made, potentially adding months or years of extra paperwork and thousands of dollars in fees to the already lengthy process. In the case of those trying to renew their visas while they’re still in the U.S., they could be placed in deportation proceedings the moment their visas expire.

It was really difficult not to post more excerpts, but basically they've put more power in the hands of the folks in the initial stage of application processing, allowing denials without taking the actual applicant into account. Critics argue this is furthering of Trump's "invisible wall" against legal immigration. Employers who use visas to recruit specialized employees (H1-B) fear losing long-term employees who have done nothing to lose their status except perhaps forget to submit a single sheet of paper in a lengthy, and costly, application process. Supporters say this is exactly what Trump promised to do and is part of the "Buy American Hire American" plan.

Regardless, anyone applying for status or renewing needs to be hyper-vigilant regarding the format and inclusion of evidence as requested by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
