How do colleges tell if you are lying?

Does Uscis know everything about you?

The simple answer, of course, is that it is impossible to know whether USCIS knows if an applicant for a green card or for naturalization is lying to them. The safe assumption is that they DO know everything about you and that, if you lie in the interview, you will be caught. Do not ever lie to the immigration service.

Should I specify my race on a job application?
