Justice Department Takes Down Tech Giant

The DOJ has set its sights on one of the many biased tech giants.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) just filed a serious legal action against social media company Facebook for allegedly discriminating against U.S. workers in its hiring practices. It is the latest in a series of legal actions that the Trump administration is taking against the organization.

According to a DOJ press release, “the lawsuit alleges that Facebook refused to recruit, consider, or hire qualified and available U.S. workers for over 2,600 positions that Facebook, instead, reserved for temporary visa holders it sponsored for permanent work authorization (or ‘green cards’) in connection with the permanent labor certification process (PERM).”

The lawsuit, which is based on a two-year investigation into the company, alleges that “Facebook intentionally created a hiring system in which it denied qualified U.S. workers a fair opportunity to learn about and apply for jobs that Facebook instead sought to channel to temporary visa holders Facebook wanted to sponsor for green cards.”

Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband explained the charges against the company. “The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers,” he continued:

“This lawsuit follows a nearly two-year investigation into Facebook’s practices and a ‘reasonable cause’ determination by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Our message to workers is clear: if companies deny employment opportunities by illegally preferring temporary visa holders, the Department of Justice will hold them accountable. Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.”

The DOJ’s statement outlined the steps Facebook allegedly took to avoid hiring U.S. citizens. “Rather than conducting a genuine search for qualified and available U.S. workers for permanent positions sought by these temporary visa holders, Facebook reserved the positions for temporary visa holders because of their immigration status, according to the complaint.”

The lawsuit also alleges that “Facebook sought to channel jobs to temporary visa holders at the expense of U.S. workers by failing to advertise those vacancies on its careers website, requiring applicants to apply by physical mail only, and refusing to consider any U.S. workers who applied for those positions. In contrast, Facebook’s usual hiring process relies on recruitment methods designed to encourage applications by advertising positions on its careers website, accepting electronic applications, and not pre-selecting candidates to be hired based on a candidate’s immigration status, according to the lawsuit.”

If these allegations are true, Facebook might be in some hot water in more ways than one. While much of the focus has been on its censorship and privacy practices, it appears the company may have been breaking laws related to immigration. This suit, if it is allowed to go forward, could be yet another black eye on the company.

  1. Absolute power corrupts absolutely! Mark Z is out of control and in hot water and he deserves to go to jail for violating the constitutional rights of conservative Americans! Not to mention he’s been known, by his own admission, to ingesting adrenochrome, which makes him guilty of crimes against humanity! Now, let’s see if this posts!

      • Dennis Summer is right! I am 59 and to stop all this madness what needs to be done are firing squads. If you think through any other form of punishment the government will be less dangerous to the American society you are sadly mistaken.

        When these oligarchs and government officials are stood in front of a firing squad along with their families, no prison time, then and only then will others follow the law. Oligarchs are bad as robber barons and need to be taken down. Laws will be followed if true punishment is unleashed.

        Other than that is is all charades plain and simple. The rich continue to get the gold mine and the poor get the shaft. That applies to all political parties. The republic is gone, and soft communism or tyranny is here to stay. The elites are the so called kings and everyone else including the president are just serfs allowed to live on the land.

    • Those who own Google and Twitter also deserve to go to jail for having censorship policies that fly in the face of the First Amendment of The Constitution of The United States.

  2. Mark Zuckerberg Also Funded Money For The Demoncratic Party In The Some Of 500,000,000 Billion Dollar’s For Bidon & Harris Champion Funding , Isn’t That Illegal To Fund That Much Money From One Corporation To A Certain Party Member’s, Champion , I Don’t Know If Barr Knows This Or Not About This Funding Of A Overwhelming Amount Of Money , It Seems To Someone Else Was Put In Prison For The Very Same Thing Back In The Late 90’s Well I May Be Wrong Or I Maybe Right I’ll Have To Research It Some more

    • Yes Kim, you are wrong. You can look up exactly how much Zuckerberg donated. And, thanks to the Supreme Court ……..”Corporations are Citizens Too” decision, the dark money flows in o both sides of the aisle, unchecked and unreported.

  3. Now DOJ how about Zuckerberg being indicted for State and Federal Election Fraud and tampering with illegal mechanisms for bypassing required integrity protocols and chain of custody requirements necessary to audit the authenticity of a state’s claim of certification…when they know different…and so does more than 50% of the state’s electorate.

  4. Blah, blah, I’m seventy years old and I’ll never see any serious actions taken against the girly boy tech tyrants in my lifetime!

  5. Facebook is against the United States of America! These guys need to be brought down a few
    notches. It is terrible that they hire outside our country instead of Americans. They just have way too
    much money for their own good. It is truly sad that after they made their money in America, they turned
    Their back on America. The are for the NWO!

  6. If this happens, we must not stop there. This crook is guilty of so many things, it will take years to get him on all counts. Just do this one, and do the ones most serious so we can shut that corrupt and evil site down and flush it down the toilet. Let’s see if we at least do this one right, it is long long overdue!!

  7. All a smoke scdeen. Attorney General William Barr’s DOJ can’t find corruption in the election. What do you think will come of this? Nithing?

  8. “Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.””

    As soon as they apply that to the Trump Empire, I’ll believe it.

    Case in point, Mar-el-Lago and the Trump VA winery both exist on cheap foreign labor.

  9. It is easy to see how corrupt the Democrat/Socialist Party and the National Media have become when they tell us that we need to wear masks, but never say a word about the tens of thousands of rioters in our country who are being bussed all over our country with impunity and complete acceptance by the Democratic States. They are spreading COVID 19 and the Democrats act like everything is just fine for the rioters, but the family businesses and church’s should stay closed or are restricted illegally. We have Democrat and Republican church goers, but the Democrat Church people say nothing, so they must be false believers if our bible is correct.

  10. It’s about fikkin’ time Barr does at least something about anything..and at least one of these whaleturds in hi tech is finally being held accountable for at least…something..then again..I’m sure $$$ will talk..they get their hiring done illegally anyway..and Americans get screwed..yet again..its what’s been going on for decades..do you really…really think things are gonna change???..BS!!

  11. I’m very disappointed in the DOJ right now. How they can say there’s have no creditable leads to voter fraud is beyond me! I’ve read about it everywhere. Apparently they aren’t looking at leads that are being provided to them. There isn’t time for a “ground up”investigation. They move sooo slow. Come on Barr! Help fix the election first so America can stay America!!

  12. I am getting VERY TIRED OF HEARING about these Tech Giants taking advantage of the Laws of this country, PERIOD. Every time I turn around their censoring this or that. Why are they allowed to continue this type of behavior? Everyone complains about it but NOBODY does ANYTHING about it!!
    Their obviously a “ROGUE COMPANY.” Now Zuckerberg is gave millions to directly affect the 2020 election? Over 300 million, last I heard? Why is this allowed in the first place?
