Displaced U.S. workers who were pushed out of their jobs by immigrant replacements are suing the Department of Homeland Security over a new rule that would allow the spouses of guest workers to enter the job market.

The complaint, filed Thursday by the Immigration Reform Law Institute on behalf of a group of displaced workers previously employed at Southern California Edison Co., argues that DHS does not have the authority to make such a rule and that it violates federal labor protection laws.

"The larger implication is that Obama is arguing he has the executive authority to allow anyone to work in the United States," John Miano, the attorney for the displaced workers, told The Daily Caller. "[He] started with the children, then the parents, and now the spouses of H-1B workers."
