DOJ Fines Virginia Firm for Hiring Foreigners over Qualified Americans

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is fining a Charlottesville, Virginia, firm hundreds of thousands of dollars for hiring foreign workers on H-1B visas instead of qualified Americans in its latest settlement, thanks to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative.

The Justice Department announced this week it will fine CFA Institute (CFAI) more than $320,000 for choosing to discriminate against qualified American workers by specifically hiring foreign workers imported through the H-1B visa program.

Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa and are allowed to stay for up to six years. There are about 650,000 H-1B visa foreign workers in the U.S. at any given moment. Americans are often laid off in the process and forced to train their foreign replacements, as highlighted by Breitbart News. More than 85,000 Americans annually potentially lose their jobs to foreign labor through the H-1B visa program.

The DOJ investigation revealed that CFAI, a nonprofit firm of investment professionals, hired H-1B visa foreign workers to administer an exam for financial analysists that provides them with a global certification if they pass.

Same thing happens in OC. Big hotels hold "job fairs" to make it look like they are trying to get Americans to work but end up hiring little to none of them knowing they will then hire foreigners. This really hurts the black communities as it's mostly all blacks applying I was told. But they keep stupidly voting democrat and they are who insist on open borders and unlimited immigration. This practice is another way for the democrats to keep blacks chained up mere slaves totally dependent on the democrat plantation.

I hate it when I call a company and the only person I can speak to is a foreigner who I can barely understand.
