There are lots of targets on Arizona’s back these days. And no shortage of archers itching for a shot at the bullseye.
Everyone knows about SB1070 and the beating it took at the hands of judge Susan Bolton; and of course there’s the recent inclusion of the law into a human rights report from the Justice Department to the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner – evidently there is no better way to cleanse America’s many and sundry sins than to submit our evil doings directly to the august and sage diplomats of Geneva.
Of course the Federales seldom rest – they are always cooking up new ways to mess around with the internal workings of our 48th state. The latest salvo?
Evidently it is wrong to ask non-citizens to supply more paperwork when applying for a job then citizens. No, really.
From the August 31st AZ Central (yes, the Repugnant):
“The U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Community College District on Monday, accusing it of discrimination for requiring extra paperwork from new employees who were not U.S. citizens.
The suit claims that at least 247 newly hired employees who were not citizens were required to present additional work-authorization documents beyond those required by law between July 2008 and January 2010.
The district, which did not require the extra documents from U.S. citizens, stopped the practice in January, during a Justice Department investigation.
The Immigration and Nationality Act requires employers to treat authorized workers in the same manner as U.S. citizens, according to Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general in charge of the Civil Rights Division.”
Perez, according to Discover The Networks,
“…sees America as a nation replete with racism and discrimination. He has helped lead the fight against Arizona’s recently passed anti-illegal immigration bill. And he was a key force behind the Justice Department’s decision to dismiss its case against two Philadelphia-based members of the New Black Panther Party who had intimidated white voters with racial slurs and threats of violence on Election Day, 2008.”
The lawsuit is yet another item in a long laundry list of “We the people are offended, but seem to be powerless to stop you” moments featuring the Prez and his elitist social engineers.
Where it ends, or if it ever will end, we can only imagine. For now fines are planned for anyone who dares to ask more of an alien, illegal or otherwise, than they would ask of one of our own citizens.
“We Are The World”, indeed.
