Santos Delacruz Hernandez, who was illegally fired by his company, returned to work today. Thanks to my intervention and the U.S. Department of Justice, Mr. Hernandez was reinstated to his job. I especially want to thank attorney Jennifer Sultan and investigator Sergio Esquivel of the Department of Justice for all their help. I also thank the media for helping to get this important story out.
It remains to be seen if we are successful in getting him paid his back pay from October 6, the date on which McCann's Engineering & Manufacturing Company fired him, wrongly claiming that his work permit was expired. I will keep you posted.
