Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.
Employers are prohibited from discrimination related to immigration status. You can definitely try to file a complaint and see if there is a recourse against them. There is a special office that looks into these matters when related to immigration. They are called Office of the Special Counsel.
This federal law prohibits: 1) citizenship status discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee, 2) national origin discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee, 3) document abuse (unfair documentary practices during the employment eligibility verification, Form I-9, process, and 4) retaliation or intimidation.
You can call them at 1-***-***-****.
