Event Summary

The Center for Immigration Studies hosted a panel discussion Thursday, April 2, on the Justice Department’s “Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative”, which was launched in 2017 to protect the interests of U.S. workers by cracking down on employers who are abusing temporary visa programs to deny U.S. workers job opportunities. The starting point for conversation was a Center report, highlighting the agencies and programs working to ensure that American workers are not being passed over for employment by businesses that are abusing visa programs to bring in cheap labor from abroad.
