A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.
Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.
Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”
“Employers cannot discriminate against workers by requiring them to produce more documents than necessary in the employment eligibility verification and reverification processes,” Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights division, Molly Moran, said in a statement.With the employment rate being at some of its lowest levels ever, and given the rampant spread of illegal immigration generally non-violent foreign invasion, it seems beyond insane for the federal government of the United fucking States of America to fine a productive business for doing a little extra due diligence in ensuring that its fucking employees weren't illegal immigrants. Because the main thing America needs is more foreign workers, particularly of the "undocumented" variety.
This is simply evil, pure and simple. The federal government completely hates its citizens and is actively seeking their misery and destruction. It's time to water the tree of liberty with the blood of all federal employees, elected and unelected.
Before I completely let my anger get the best of me, though, it behooves me to question whether this is actually some world-class black-knighting. If an employer is genuinely concerned about the legal status of his employees, fining said employer for being too rigorous (and calling it citizenship-discrimination) is actually a pretty good way to ensure that fewer foreign workers are hired since the potential costs of hiring them are now higher. This gives the administration the appearance of helping poor third-world immigrants while actually hurting them. This would assume that the administration is assuming that their political support base is economically ignorant, which is actually quite plausible.
Or it could be the case that the federal government has nothing but disdain for its citizens. Given how the citizens continually vote to keep the federal system alive, there's a good chance that the federal government just might be onto something.
