PA law firm that lectured on circumventing immigration law under senator's scrutiny

The AP reports that Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has called on Labor Secretary Elaine Chao to investigate the ethics of the Pittsburgh law firm, Cohen & Grigsby. The law firm posted a clip on the popular video-sharing website YouTube of their attorneys explaining at an immigration conference how to circumvent U.S. immigration law.

From the AP article:
"The goal here of course is to meet the requirements, number one, but also do so as inexpensively as possible, keeping in mind our goal. And our goal is clearly not to find a qualified and interested U.S. worker," Lawrence Lebowitz, the firm's vice president of marketing, told the audience in May.

Grassley, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee's immigration subcommittee, sent a letter to Cohen & Grigsby, demanding to know how many visa petitions have been filed by the firm in the past five years. He denounced the firm's tactics as discrimination.

What is the Pennsylvania Bar Association doing about this? I think disbarment is in order.

I can't believe more people haven't commented on this post. This is incredible -- and says a lot about how the federal system in the U.S. works... or doesn't.
