The Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security entered into an agreement Friday aimed at stopping U.S. companies from favoring foreign workers with visas over U.S. workers, according to documents first obtained by the Washington Examiner.
Justice and Homeland Security officials hope the tighter union, made official Friday through a memorandum of understanding, leads to quicker detection of U.S. employers who discriminate against U.S. workers, as well as quicker punishment for immigrants who abuse or commit fraud...
Hiring "temporary foreign visa workers over available, qualified U.S. workers may be discriminating in violation" of U.S. law, documents detailing the joint agreement stated. The agreement is between the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
In the spirit of President Trumps Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American, todays partnership adds to the Civil Rights Divisions tools to stop employers from discriminating against U.S. workers by favoring foreign visa workers, acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore of the Civil Rights Division said in a statement. The Division looks forward to expanding its partnerships with USCIS to hold accountable employers that discriminate against U.S. workers based on their citizenship status.

My daughter lost her job to workers from India. To add insults to injury, she then had to train the new workers. Took 3 of them to do her job.
From what I read here this will do nothing to prevent the jobs being taken offshore.
How about a private right to sue with treble damages and attorney’s fees?

Meanwhile, the country is being undermined and subverted by Rosenkrantz and Mueller. Priorities.
About time!!! Just did a walk during lunch hour. My corporation looks a whole lot like India.
No but an offshore company just hired me to work there.

I am of the opinion that the easy fix would be to require any visa job, to pay the prevailing wage plus 10% to the worker and be taxed at an additional +10% for the life of the job.
