I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

DOJ and DOL in New Partnership to Protect U.S. Workers from Discrimination

Rate this Entry
By: Bruce Buchanan, Sebelist Buchanan Law




In a continuation of President Trump’s Buy American, Hire American Executive Order, the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration expanded their collaboration to better protect U.S. workers from discrimination by employers that prefer to hire temporary visa workers over qualified U.S. workers.

This partnership enhances the Civil Rights Division’s efforts to stop companies from discriminating against U.S. workers and assists the Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration in identifying noncompliance with its foreign labor certification process. The signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) establishes protocols for the agencies to share information, refer matters between them, and train each other’s employees.

The Civil Rights Division has increased its collaboration with other federal agencies, including the Departments of State and Homeland Security, to combat discrimination and abuse by employers improperly using temporary visa workers. Today’s MOU expands on the Division’s existing partnership with DOL.

“Employers should hire workers based on their skills, experience, and authorization to work; not based on discriminatory preferences that violate the law,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore of the Civil Rights Division. “Our partnership with DOL, formalized today, significantly enhances the Civil Rights Division’s ability to identify employers that favor temporary visa holders over U.S. workers who can do the job.”

For answers to many other questions related to immigration compliance, I invite you to read The I-9 and E-Verify Handbook, a book that I co-authored with Greg Siskind, and is available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0997083379.

    Maybe I am just being a little suspicious, but every time I see the Trump administration talking about "discrimination" against (mainly white) U.S. workers with regard to US employers who hire foreign citizens, it looks very much like just one more pretext for barring qualified (mainly non-white) immigrants from coming to or working in the United States.

    And whatever happened to Trump's "Merit-based" immigration which he is trying to use as an excuse for gutting family and diversity visas?

    Isn't hiring foreign workers what "Merit-based" immigration is all about?

    Wouldn't a better title for this article have been:

    "DOJ and DOL in new move to keep qualified legal immigrants out of the US "?

    Pardon me if I sound a little cynical here. But Trump has now been president for more than a year and a half, and it has been a long time since anyone could take anything that he or his administration says or does about immigration at face value - except for the racism and bigotry, that is.
