The U.S. Justice Department said Tuesday that it has sued a major San Diego hospital, saying it discriminated against immigrant employees and job applicants.

The department said UCSD Medical Center demanded excessive documentation from non-citizen job applicants and employees to prove they were eligible to work.

Rick Perry is right.
We need to get the Feds out of our lives.

Looks like Obama & Co, intends to ratchet up their tyranny right up to the end. Probably thinks he’ll be able to cancel the coming elections and just take over as dictator.

I hate to sound conspiritorial, but somewhere along the line, there was a coup d’etat that even preceeds the current Obama reign of terror. Clearly those running things have absolutely no concern for the well being of the nation. Everyday it’s just one sellout after another.

In a sane America, this would be part of a promotional commercial FOR the hospital.

If this nonesense keeps on keeping on no employeer will want to hire anyone! Send them all back to their own countries problem solved. I’m so sick of foreigners coming here and claiming this and that about anything...they are all about scamming this country one way or another ...just sick of it!

UCSD Medical Center said it made changes after the Justice Department raised concerns in January, and it believes it is now in full compliance with federal regulations. The hospital said it hasn't found anyone who was denied employment based on practices being questioned.

This looks like a pure harassment lawsuit. Maybe some foreigner got asked for a technically superfluous document, and it's nice that Uncle Sam saw fit to simplify the paperwork to make it clearer the hospital won't get into all sorts of dutch for asking for too little, but that didn't end up shutting anybody out. This kind of thing is sought only after the applicant gets and accepts a job offer anyhow.

This is in my hometown. This hospital is already over run serving illegals. This is an outrage of epic proportions.

The lawsuit contends the hospital discriminated against.... non-citizen applicants and hires..... from January 2004 through June 2011.

So who in Washington brought this to the surface?..I doubt the applicants did since apparently they are illegals. Might be the Mexican authorities in WAshington who “safegard” their citizens here and can’t hardly wait for opportunites to sue.

So Holder might be at the top of this...disgusting isn’t it!

The primary mission of the ‘Executive Office for Immigration Review’:

... to adjudicate immigration cases by fairly, expeditiously, and uniformly interpreting and administering the Nation’s immigration laws.

“Under delegated authority from the Attorney General”..., EOIR conducts immigration court proceedings, appellate reviews, and administrative hearings.

Let me get this straight. If you hire illegal immigrants the .gov will raid your place of work and fine you or worse. If you check too closely to make sure you do not get raided with .gov employess with guns you get fined or sued by the same .gov. I have a solution. Everyone quit hiring anyone.

And...if they HAD NOT demanded the “excessive documentation” the Feds would sue them for hiring illegals....

The U.S. adds one international migrant (net) every 36 seconds. Immigrants account for one in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in more than 90 years. In 1970 it was one in 21; in 1980 it was one in 16; and in 1990 it was one in 13. In a decade, it will be one in 7, the highest it has been in our history. And by 2050, one in 5 residents of the U.S. will be foreign-born.

Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 310 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by 130 million to 440 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the world’s third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country in the world, i.e., 0.977 percent (2010 estimate), principally due to immigration.

    I don't see why unemployed American citizens should not be given those hospital jobs

    Are any San Diego lawyers out there willing to help a group of your local unemployed COUNTER-SUE the U.S. Justice Department for obstructing their right to obtain one of these hospital jobs.

* Growth of fisical irresponsibility by central Gov.

True...but he knows does he not. What a mess this whole nation is in.

I was reading Reagans sons book today where he mentioned one of the congressmen stating that those in the I Bama administration are privately saying they are really only overseeing the decline of the USA....of which I’ll add they are certainly doing more than teir share to move it along and take it down!

That would account for the swaths of revenues traveling thru the economic sytems worldwide...all posturing to retain their positons and the money.

You are correct. I was brought up to believe that anyone who believed in ‘conspiracy theories’ needed a tin foil hat.

However, during ‘unplanned’ time off since 9-11, I’ve had too much free time to explore what was going wrong in this country. I came upon information on the NWO, etc. It wasn’t easy to accept, but suddenly all those things that made no sense fell in place - flooding the county with illegal aliens and guest workers, giving them all kinds of freebies, ceding some of national parks to gangs who traffic in drugs and people, the denigration of our basic christian culture and anglo-saxon work ethic, no serious effort to secure our borders, no real attempt to give immigration the tools it needs for accurate timely assessments, often no real choice between the two major parties - only the ‘lesser of two evils’, etc.

Goldwater, McCarthy, and Birch were correct after all. We are and have been dealing with an 'enemy within'. The communists changed tactics from a frontal assault to a more insidious one and joined up with the Islamists to bring down the US and its pesky middle class. For years the destruction being wrought was hidden by access to cheap electronic toys made by neo-slaves and cheap credit.

Zero is just completing the work toward a New World Order accelerated by Bush-I, and continued by Clinton and Bush-II (not the only culprits, but the most recent ones). I suspect the top of the conspiracy is a relatively small number of individuals who are very patient, flexible, and use the weaknesses of human nature to pursue their agenda (e.g. politicians on both sides of the aisle corrupted by greed and power)..

IMHO free enterprise and capitalism have been replaced by crony capitalism / corporatism / fascism.

The enemy within has been very successful in creating a story for the ‘left’ about economic, social, educational, and environmental ‘justice’, sustainability, concensus and a story for the ‘right’ about ‘free trade’, 'comparative advantage', free movement of goods and natural persons, and 'profits uber alles' with no reference to patriotism or morality. Both stories lead to the same place - destruction of the American economy, security, traditional culture, values and its pesky middle class under the tyranny of global communism.

Simple Solution::

We are very sorry we angered the Federal Government by asking for Proper Documents to verify the Eligibility for these people to Legally Work in the United States. As of this Morning We are CLOSING OUR DOORS. All Assets are being sold piecemeal to other Health Care institutions as we speak. Don’t worry I am sure the Federal Government will help you in the Future.
