Posted on 09/02/2014 1:27:33 PM PDT by Zakeet
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.

I thought it was illegal to hire illegals....
Now it is illegal to hire illegals if you ask if they are illegals and they are illegals....????
So it is now illegal to follow the law... I am confused as hell here...
The Obama Criminal Organization is in charge
Oh, wait, this is real??????
Just another DOJ-organized “shake-down” of an honest business...
The beat goes on. Every day the hole gets deeper. Before we know it the dirt will start to fall in on us and we will be left in a deep hole with no shovels. I pray that something good will come from this election but I somehow doubt it. The
proggs have taken over and left us to dig out with our hands.
The White House Marxist and his minions really and truly love to f*ck American businesses.
They used E-Verify and got fined?
This makes no sense
Discrimination and Unconstitutional two favorite words of The Obama Criminal Organization
A lawful permanent residents card expires, but their right to work is permanent, and in this case Culinaire was requiring employees to present a renewed permanent resident card to be verified as work-eligible. The Justice Department claimed this violated a provision in the INA that prohibits employers from requiring extra documentation from non-citizen employees.
What an upside down country we’re living in.
Leftists WANT it to become illegal to follow the law -
how else can they control everything?
Moran was serving as Eric Holders Deputy Chief of Staff. The Washington Post reports that Moran has been overseeing, among other things, the departments voting rights lawsuits.
Note that Eric Holder has picked a political appointee, his Deputy Chief of Staff, overseeing voting lawsuits. No wonder there seems to be so much politics involved with Justice Department election decisions. Now that Moran is in place as the Acting Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, expect a more seamless chain of politicized command over election litigation. Moran will have enormous power over the mid-term elections.
We also know that the taxpayers sent Ms. Moran on a lovely jaunt to New Zealand during the federal government sequester. Before law school, Moran worked for Congressman Tim Roemer (D-In.). After law school, Moran represented corporations defending against mass tort claims, a history sure to call into question her authenticity among the rank and file at the Civil Rights Division.
One former Department of Justice political appointee in the Bush administration said Morans lack of civil rights authenticity is a defensive play by Holder. This is a hey lefties, please dont screw things up politically for me (like the Education move to block charters in Louisiana) at least be subtle in your left wingerey. pick.
More precisely, what they want is a legal system that is so convoluted and ambiguous that it is impossible for a citizen to NOT break the law while engaging in what used to be legal behavior...
hired to ignore supreme court rulings that vote ID laws are constitutional.
Time to fundraise for this business and prepare for a counter-suit. THE LAW IS NOT ON THE DOJ’S SIDE HERE, and Holder should be called before Congress on this one.
Talk about damned if you do and damned if you don’t. You can now be fined for following the law.
