Kilili: block “bad actors” from CW program
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan wants the Department of Homeland Security to make companies that violate employment laws ineligible to participate in the CW, foreign worker, program. “Companies that do not pay their workers what they are owed, companies that ignore federal safety standards in the workplace, should not have the privilege of using the CW program,” Congressman Sablan said. “We have too many legitimate businesses—and even public institutions like the hospital—that still need foreign workers and find it increasingly difficult to get CW permits. “Legitimate local businesses should not have to compete with the ‘bad actors,’ who break the law.” Sablan has already communicated his position to Homeland Security Secretary John F.

These are some of the largest penalties OSHA has issued this year, underscoring the seriousness of the violations found at the Imperial Pacific Resort construction site. I met with OSHA administrators in Washington earlier this year to urge them to maintain strict oversight of the casino construction site and recently met with newly appointment Labor Secretary Acosta to thank him for the work OSHA is doing in the Marianas.

More food aid for the Marianas
Governor Ralph Torres and I held a joint press conference to mark the rollout of the Enhanced Nutrition Assistance Program (E-NAP) for the Northern Mariana Islands. The new E-NAP means that beginning this month, more families will receive increased food assistance made possible by the $30.5 million I secured for the Northern Marianas in the 2014 Farm Bill. Congratulations to Governor Torres, Community and Cultural Affairs Secretary Robert Hunter, and NAP Administrator Walter Macaranas (pictured above, left to right) and the NAP team for their success in developing the new program and expenditure plan for those additional funds, and for obtaining approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service in May.

Torres supports Kilili proposal to block non-compliant companies from CW program
Marianas Variety — GOVERNOR Ralph D.L.G. Torres is supporting U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan’s proposal to block non-compliant companies from participating in the federal CW program. In a statement on Thursday, Torres said his administration has been working with the U.S. Department of Labor to go after employers who have not followed the laws and regulations set in place by the CNMI and federal governments. “ I fully support Congressman Kilili’s position to block companies who violate federal and local employment and immigration laws from utilizing the CW program. Since information about illegal labor and immigration practices by certain companies first came to my attention months ago, my administration has been working with the U.S. Department of Labor to go after these employers who have not followed the laws and regulations,” he said. “We do not tolerate these practices and will continue this dialogue with our federal partners for a more efficient crack
