Immigration Law Continues to be Hot Topic

The Associated Press reported last week that the Department of Labor is "probing" the work of the largest immigration firm in the nation. The Department of Labor inquiry is intended to determine if the firm, Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, has been advising its clients how to circumvent federal requirements that the companies seek qualified American workers before applying for a green card for a foreign worker. As a posting on Legal Blog Watch points out, last year the firm of Cohen and Grigsby "came under fire"when a video of its seminar on how to circumvent the requirements became available on YouTube.
