Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry also allegedly ran a grand scheme by teaming with his brother and with a Texas labor brokers to import foreign workers for Landry’s shell companies.

According to nola.com: "They set out to make millions by winning federal approval to bring in hundreds of skilled Mexican construction workers to help build a massive liquefied natural gas terminal in Cameron Parish. The effort involved three firms with ties to the attorney general: two firms owned by Jeff Landry, and one owned by his brother, Benjamin Landry, and a business associate, documents and emails show."
