“Today (August 12th), the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of an American tech workers union that brought a lawsuit challenging a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulation that permits non-student foreign labor to compete with American workers. The court struck the rule, finding that DHS did not comply with the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) when it bypassed the public notice and comment process mandated by the APA. The court also rejected DHS’s assertion that American workers do not have standing to sue when the government implements a rule that increases the potential for more competition in their job market,” notes a news release from the Immigration Reform Law Institute.
