The Justice Department today announced that it has reached a settlement agreement with the Housing Authority of Victoria, Texas (Housing Authority). The settlement resolves a complaint that the Housing Authority discriminated against a lawful permanent resident when it rejected his valid employment documents and fired him in violation of the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). While it is illegal under the INA for employers to knowingly hire individuals without work authorization, it is also illegal under that law for employers to discriminate against lawful permanent residents, among other work-authorized immigrants, in the hiring process.

Thank you for that kind introduction, Chase (Browndorf). It is a pleasure to be back at Harvard Law School. I am so pleased to see at this alumni event many friends from my time here. It is a special honor to share a speaking role at this symposium with classmates who have become leaders in law, business, and public policy: Johnathan Skrmetti, Annie Donaldson Talley, Katie Biber Chen, Sarah Harris, Jeff Harris, Judge Andrew Oldham, and Assistant Attorney General Beth Williams.  In particular, I would like to congratulate Beth, whom you are honoring tonight with an award. She is most deserving. Beth was one of the first people I met when I entered law school, and she stood out as then as intelligent, principled, and hard working. She also stood out for her warmth and generosity. All these years later, we are now colleagues at the Department of Justice and I am pleased to report that those good qualities that distinguished her during our law school days have only strengthened. We are fortunate at DOJ to have Beth in the critical role of Assistant Attorney General for Legal Policy.
