Fraud Prevention and Attorney Discipline Programs

EOIR's Fraud Prevention Program makes referrals for investigation of immigration fraud complaints it receives from EOIR staff and adjudicators, respondents in EOIR proceedings, and members of the public. It assists federal and state law enforcement agencies in investigating and prosecuting immigration-related fraud. The complaints and requests for assistance the Fraud Prevention Program receives each year involve fraud perpetrated against the government as well as the unauthorized practice of immigration law. EOIR also regulates the professional conduct of immigration attorneys and representatives in order to protect the public, preserve the integrity of immigration proceedings and adjudications, and maintain high professional standards among immigration practitioners. EOIR's Disciplinary Counsel investigates complaints involving alleged misconduct associated with practice before EOIR's immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals to determine whether an attorney or representative has engaged in criminal, unethical, or unprofessional conduct.
