My family member was refused a visa and I want to know why
Due to U.S. laws protecting the privacy of visa applicants, we cannot give information about a visa application to a third party. In most cases, refused applicants are given a letter explaining the reason at the time of the refusal. Friends and family cannot influence the visa process.
