LOGAN (AP) — The former director of international students at Utah State University has sued the school, contending she was fired after speaking out about immigration policy violations.

Jennifer Ewald's lawsuit says that shortly after she began working for USU, she realized there were irregularities with records kept by the Office of International Students, such as fraudulent Immigration and Naturalization Service documents.

Ewald also alleges she was often contacted by people in Logan who offered her money and gifts in exchange for fraudulent INS documents.

When she reported the irregularities to USU legal counsel and her supervisor, Ewald was fired, the suit contends. It claims that by doing so, the school violated the Public Employees Act.
