In February 2017, IER launched its Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative.

The Immigration and Employment Rights (“IER”) Section of the Department of Justice formerly The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices, launched an initiative to target, investigate and bring enforcement actions against employers they believe are discriminating against U.S. workers in favor of foreign workers.  IER’s zealous approach can spill over into legitimate use of TN visas for Mexican Nationals and TN entries for Canadians.
