Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to sue a Colorado corporation for employing foreigners over Americans.

The first results of the ‘Buy American, hire American’ policy are ringing out. As U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to sue a corporation based on the grounds of breaking the Immigration and Nationality Act, he set the start of the implementation of President Trump’s executive order regarding the matter.

Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it will file a law suit against a Colorado corporation accused of hiring foreign workers over Americans, in this first-ever suit based upon the ‘Buy American, Hire American’ executive order.

In a statement by Sessions, the DOJ announced it file a lawsuit against Crop Production Services, Inc. The company is based in Loveland, Colorado. The DOJ will claim the company discriminated against American workers in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

“In the spirit of President Trump’s Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American, the Department of Justice will not tolerate employers who discriminate against U.S. workers because of a desire to hire temporary foreign visa holders,” Sessions said in a statement. “The Justice Department will enforce the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to protect U.S. workers as they are the very backbone of our communities and our economy. Where there is a job available, U.S. workers should have a chance at it before we bring in workers from abroad.”

In 2016, according to the DOJ, Crop Production discriminated against at least three American workers in El Campo, Texas, by refusing to give them jobs in seasonal positions. The company instead, awarded those jobs to imported foreign workers who came to the U.S. on the H-2A visa program.

 The DOJ also says Crop Production hit American workers with tougher job requirements than they did foreign workers on H-2A visas in order to discourage Americans from taking jobs at the company’s Texas facility. According to the DOJ, American workers were forced to complete background checks and drug tests, while the imported foreign workers were allowed to begin working before completing either of the job requirements.
The fight continues. President Trump succeeds in implementing yet another law supporting the employment of our people. Weather it will be sabotaged in other aspects buy the same people who are aiming to divide our nation is yet to be seen.
One thing’s for sure, though- it’s a move on Sessions’ part that deserves a greeting.
