In the Trump Administration’s latest effort to crack down on illegal immigration and to support its “Buy American, Hire American” initiative, the Departments of Justice (DOJ) and Labor (DOL) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) establishing an information sharing and case referral mechanism for alleged immigration law violations.
