FRAGOMEN TO DOL: TELL IT TO THE JUDGE

Rate this Entry

The Fragomen firm has filed a suit seeking an injunction barring the Department of Labor from carrying out the audit of all of the firm's clients. According to Thomas Williamson of Covington and Burling, Fragomen's lawyer:

"The Fragomen firm filed a lawsuit today against the U.S. Department of

Labor to stop the Department's unlawful and unconstitutional attempts to


prevent employers from getting the legal advice they need to comply with the


law. The Department has denied and continues to deny Fragomen's clients -


and all employers - their constitutionally protected right to counsel and it


is retroactively applying a new interpretation of its own regulations.

 

Fragomen is seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent the Department from


enforcing its new and unlawful interpretation of the law. We are asking the


federal court in Washington to order the Department to abide by its own


regulations and the Constitution and to cancel the special audit."

WIlliamson is not just any lawyer. He is a former chief lawyer for the Department of Labor.

    This is a clear statement for more skilled immigration, not less...

    "The meritocracy theory requires us to believe that for decades no women and no people of color were as qualified as white men, who essentially had every field locked up."

    Comment: Are we serious? Is this the best we have? Banking, Finance, Construction and Airline industry all run by white American men in a complete mess and no end in sight to the continuing disaster? This is a clear cut case for more skilled immigration not less and Mark Kirkorian's book The Case Against Immigration is defending the incompetent and disastrous status quo and shows his racist leanings...protect jobs for domestic incompetent white males.
