Highly detailed, report-specific Reliability Assessments of 'Reports of Investigation,' both prepared and peddled by Forensics Document Laboratory (FDL) and Regional USCIS Document Examiners, and Fraud Prevention Investigators operating out of U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad. Diligent analysis of more than one hundred Reports of Investigation have revealed, among other things, an immutable pattern of ethically challenged Trial Attorneys soliciting unfounded findings of document fraud, both from the FDL and Fraud Prevention Investigators abroad, ethically challenged immigration judges encouraging and in some cases insisting upon their solicitation, albeit they knew, and/or should have known them to be inherently inaccurate and unreliable, and Forensics Document Examiners and Fraud Prevention Investigators fabricating unfounded findings of document fraud in an effort to undermine petitioner credibility, facilitate the denial of otherwise meritorious claims, and justify an order of deportation and eventual refoulement to the petitioner's country of origin.
