Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group has a longstanding history of successful case representations at USCIS. This has given us the opportunity to learn the inner workings of the adjudicating bench and we are thus uniquely qualified to know of any alterations in the adjudication process. This helps us aid our clients in tailoring their petitions according to the requirements of the time.

When in October 2020, a client from China with a Ph.D. in Entomology approached us to help her file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we employed our team of experts to build a solid case for her. We put together details from her professional and academic career in her petition packet to support her claim to the NIW category.

We showed that along with her academic qualification, she was also actively engaged in the field of agricultural science as a research scientist. And that her research related to applying ecological, transcriptomic, metabolomic, and statistical analysis techniques to discover novel biological control tactics for integrated pest management has great substantial merit and national importance.

On the other hand, we showed that her academic performance has been responsible for a number of publications, and citations, and she has also been called to peer review some of the most highly ranked journals in her field. She has already completed at least 8 peer reviews to date. Her research has resulted in 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and these publications have been cited a total of 170 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of agricultural science.

Not only this but of the recommendations had excellent reviews of her work, two of which are quoted below:

“[Client] is an agricultural science researcher who has directly addressed this issue through her research on seed-delivered biological agents as a novel mode-of-action pesticide. More broadly, her work improves the understanding of plant pathogens and their interaction with phytobiomes. As such, [her] research greatly benefits the United States by supporting food security and sustainable agricultural production.”

“[Client] contributions are especially meaningful, as they serve a larger societal goal. Indeed, her research facilitates the prevention of one of the world’s most devastating impacts on the environment-pesticides. Not only do they contaminate soil and water, they are frequently toxic to other non-target organisms, resulting in severely detrimental effects on these ecosystems.”

We are thus very proud to have been a part of her NIW approval journey. We wish her the very best in life.
