Trump’s Justice Department files a lawsuit alleging that Facebook gives preferential treatment to immigrant workers with temporary visas.

The suit by the Justice Department claims that from 2018 through September 2019, Facebook discriminated against US workers by reserving job openings for temporary workers including H-1B visa holders. In a statement, Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said: “Facebook has been cooperating with the DOJ in its review of this issue and while we dispute the allegations in the complaint, we cannot comment further on pending litigation.”

The DOJ claims that the company reserved over 2,600 positions for temporary visa holders and wants the company to fork out back pay for the positions that were not given to U.S. citizens.

The Trump administration’s lawsuit seeks unspecified civil penalties; back pay on behalf of U.S. workers denied employment at Facebook due to the alleged discrimination; and “other relief to ensure Facebook stops the alleged violations in the future.” The DOJ alleges Facebook’s hiring practices violated a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
