DOJ sues Las Vegas casino for screening non-citizen workers
Examiner.com ^ | 06/01/2012 | Jim Kouri

Posted on 06/02/2012 3:33:02 PM PDT by aimhigh

While proponents of immigration enforcement have been told that the federal government monitors the hiring of illegal aliens by the private sector, including adherence to the federal employment verification (I-9) program, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department appears to have made a decision to penalize organizations that zealously comply.

For example, on Thursday the Justice Department announced that it filed a civil lawsuit against the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, accusing the company of engaging in "a pattern or practice of discrimination in the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process."

Whoa, Nellie. Sounds like a blatant mob war. I don’t think Chicago is going to win. YMMV, but I live in Vegas.

The Audacity of Corruption

Now the Justice Department equals the Legislature, along with the Executive Branch.

Absolute power.

If they thoroughly investigate all applicants where's the problem? A quick trip to my safety deposit box would allow me to present any potential employer or any government official a US passport and a certified state birth certificate showing that I was born here.No problem.This sounds like an intentional undermining of the law requiring employers to screen applicants.

This is the purported heart of the dispute:

The DOJ complaint alleges that Tuscany treated non-citizens differently from U.S. citizens during the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process by requesting non-citizen employees to provide more or different documents or information than required during the initial employment eligibility verification process, and demanded specific documents during the re-verification process.

The devil could well be in the details. But if a person is self identified as not a citizen wouldn't you then of course want a proof of his or her legal presence, before giving him or her access to the casino's dough? An SSN and government ID check could tell you: yes this person is a citizen, and there's no worry about his or her legal presence.

This is cocker mamie.

SOP of the left.

When a republican is in office, paralyze the DOJ to a point where they cannot do their jobs. When a rat is in office, use the DOJ as your police enforcement.

Bush should have fired every Clnton appointee and when the media whined about it, investigated them.

Well, I guess if Obammy doesn’t need to show a real birth certificate and ss#, neither should they. /s

I'm fairly certain that all these ridiculous suits and actions by the DoJ are designed to distract us from the greatest government scandal in US history, "Fast & Furious."

And they're being remarkably successful at taking our attention away from a government operation that purposely trafficked firearms across international borders, directly arming criminal drug cartels (who are for all intents and purposes at war with the Mexican government), in order to generate "evidence" which was supposed to turn the American public opinion against gun ownership, and in effect, subvert the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. And as a result, hundreds, if not thousands, of Mexican citizens have been killed with those very weapons, but more to the point one, or possibly two federal agents have been killed with the weapons supplied to the drug cartels by our own government.

I agree. In addition, the next administration needs to cut off the obuma moochers from the taxpayer teat. No more food stamps, no more free rent vouchers, no more social security disability payments and no more crazy money for the kids faking DDT or whatever they call it now.

You are right. What happened to old fashioned common sense and good business practices?

This is the part I focused on re: a certain “zealosusness” at the Tuscany for among other things, keeping track of the expiration date of a Green Card for purpose of re-verification when that expiration date came.

I’d give that zealous employee a raise for keeping track.

You have to understand the subtleties of the law. Clark County is the only Nevada county won by the Senate Majority Leader in last election. Employment law must not be allowed to threaten that decisive population by attempting to exclude Senator Reid's most loyal following - the undocumented worker.

Didn’t former Gov. of Wisconsin Tommy Thompson actually start “purging” his state from the welfare plague? As I recall have gave all those sucking from the big breast of the Wisconsin tax payers, two years to get themselves off welfare? Sure would be a good start.

They should treat them differently because they are different but then that would put Obama in hot water.

IT IS WAY PAST IMPEACHMENT TIME!!

Like AZ tried to explain to a non-listening nation, these ARE LAWS CURRENTLY on the books, passed and signed into LAW by Congresses and Presidents of many years ago.

Teddy "Swimmer" Kennedy promised the nation in 1986 "This will be the last amnesty ever." The exact quote is ‘This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.’

Here it is 26 years later and up to 30,000,000 more illegal invaders have crossed the border, the border is NOT secure notwithstanding Big Sis' pronouncement to the contrary, and the open border crowd and their RAT ADMINISTRATION wants even more undocumented demonRATS for their illegal voting pool.

Prepare to be greatly disappointed. The next administration will be no different than this one. Rep Issa, while regularly grabbing sensational headlines has been farting around for a couple of years and nobody is under charges or in jail.

No elected body is questioning Hussein’s eigibility issues. They are doing their best to ignore Sheriff Arpaio’s efforts. I am certain he is not getting any assistance from any federal agency, even the ones that should know the facts, FBI, CIA, NSA, HSD, ICE. I would fire the top heads in every one of those agencies for lack of performance.

Romney isn’t talking about protecting our individual rights by crushing Agenda 21. Nope, I am not expecting any improvements from the next occupant of 1600.

So Rubashkin is in hot water for, among other things, hiring illegals, but he would have been in hot water for taking precautions not to hire them, as well. Who needs Congress? Just behead a chicken and have it dance around on a ouija board until it spells out the law, just like in South Park.
