2012年第一季度EB-1A、EB-1B及NIW的批准情况

I. An Overview

In the first quarter of 2012, Liu & Associates had eighty-two (82) EB-1A, EB
-1B, and NIW I-140 cases approved by the USCIS. Among the approved I-140
cases, twenty-seven (27) were EB-1A, twenty-three (23) were EB-1B, and
thirty-two (32) were NIW petitions. In the first quarter of 2012, we had
three (3) EB-1A, two (2) EB-1B, and no NIW I-140 cases denied by the USCIS.
As it happened before, these denied cases were mostly processed by the same
one or two officers of the premium processing unit who appeared to hold an
adjudicatory standard that was different from the vast majority of USCIS
adjudicators. During the same period of time, EB-1A and EB-1B cases with
similar or even weaker credentials were routinely approved by other USCIS
adjudicators through regular and premium processing. For credentials and
background information of the approved EB-1A, EB-1B, and NIW I-140 cases,
please see our report at http://www.niwus.com/Approvals.html.

II. The Kazarian Effect

Since USCIS adopted the Kazarian analysis, we have received numerous
inquiries in regard to the USCIS Interim Memorandum following Kazarian and
whether USCIS has raised the bar for EB-1A, EB-1B and NIW petitions. So far,
we have not seen a clear trend of change or USCIS policy shift regarding EB
-1A, EB-1B and NIW adjudication. However, in wake of Kazarian, USCIS has
adjusted its adjudication guidance of EB-1A and EB-1B, which have caused
confusions and inconsistency of adjudication standards among the USCIS
adjudicators. As a result, we have seen an increase of Request for Evidence
(RFEs) and Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs). This trend continued in the
first quarter of 2012. Although this issue was addressed at our meetings
with USCIS officials, apparently it has not been resolved. For details of
the Kazarian issue, please see our report at http://www.niwus.com/USCIS_Updates201107.html.
