The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA. The statute prohibits, among other things, citizenship, immigration status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices in employment eligibility verification; retaliation; and intimidation.
We have many legal immigrants in this country. I wish they weren't here, but they are. As long as they are not in violation of any immigration law (like illegals are) they should not be barred from any job in the private sector. However, American citizens should be given priority over immigrants.
