Accuracy in Media

Are you serious? Apparently, Obama’s Department of Justice is serious about the allegations.

The Department of Justice has accused a business of discrimination due to the company requiring employees to show proof of citizenship for employment.

The DOJ claims that Nebraska Beef Ltd., a Nebraska-based meat packing company, “required non-U.S. citizens, but not similarly-situated U.S. citizens, to present specific documentary proof of their immigration status to verify their employment eligibility.”

    Why would it be an issue for non-citizens to be asked to show their eligibility for employment and then to hit up somebody for $200k for doing so?

    Then to get government lawyers to spend taxpayer money prosecuting such a frivolous and defamatory suit?

    Obviously US citizens do not have to prove their immigration status. Unless you take the progressive position that people are only citizens because Obama authorizes it.

    My employer, which is a large financial interest requires proof. If we could not prove citizenship (I gave them my passport), then we had to prove eligibly to work.

    It is indeed the law that the employees be eligible to work and illegal for employers to hire workers that are not eligible. That is part of the concept behind e-verify. They must provide a tax-id that is approved for work, it says right on the tax-id card (or ssn) if it is not eligible for work.

    I say again! The only way this B.S. is going to stop is for activist Americans to call their elected representatives and raise hell! Once again, here’s the White House switchboard line. All you have to do is call them on 1-2-2-456-1111, give them your representatives name, or your senator’s name, and the operator will connect you! Those worthless politicians are constantly using the excuse that they don’t receive enough phone calls on important issues, which then “motivate” them to take action. This issue is just one more outrage, just one more reason to impeach Obama, and to remove the new AG Obama appointed. Obviously, Ms. Loretta Lynch is no better than Eric Holder, who was the worst and most radically partisan AG in U.S. history!
