Louisiana Democratic Party Statement on Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Ties to Visa Fraud
BATON ROUGE, LA – Friday, The Advocate released a series of reports based on investigations into Attorney General Jeff Landry’s firm importing workers with the help of a felon who broke immigration laws.
The Louisiana Democratic Party released the following statement:
“It’s alarming that Attorney General Jeff Landry believes the law applies to others, but not himself,” Stephen Handwerk, Executive Director of the Louisiana Democratic Party said. “This report shows that Landry isn’t just a fraud and a hypocrite, but now also a likely criminal. It’s telling that he and his business partners would rather commit visa fraud than pay Louisiana workers the fair wages they deserve. It’s shameful. I hope federal authorities will continue to investigate and get to the bottom of the crimes committed.”
