CASE ENTRY

Washington Alliance of Technology Workers v. Department of Homeland Security

The Dep’t of Homeland Security permits foreigners admitted on student visas to stay and work in STEM fields for up to three years after graduation; their employers must attest they aren’t replacing a native worker, nor being paid less than one. Plaintiffs: Congress never authorized this; it lowers wages for U.S. workers. D.C. Circuit: Plaintiffs have standing to sue. (The lawsuit is now in its 10th year.)
