The Justice Department files lawsuit against Tuscany Hotel and Casino alleging that the company engaged in discrimination in the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process.
The lawsuit alleges that the Tuscany Hotel and Casino treated non-citizens differently from U.S. citizens 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.
Employers are required to treat all authorized workers equally during the hiring, firing and employment eligibility verification process, regardless of their national origin or citizenship status.
The situation really seems like a catch 22; damned if you if do and damned if you don’t.
The fact is there are a lot of illegal people in the United States and the people here illegally are taking jobs away from Americans.
America is in the throes of record unemployment and, it seem, that everyone is catering to the illegal immigrants which, this author just does not get.
Illegal immigrants are getting free healthcare, drivers licenses, bank accounts and oodles and oodles of assistance that CITIZENS are not able to obtain without jumping though hoops.
A person here in this country illegally can open a bank account without providing a social security number for example. Bank of America is even issuing credit cards!
Was the Tuscany truly trying to discriminate? Or were they simply trying to cover the own butts so that they do not get in trouble.
Something is very wrong with the American way when people that are illegally in our country are receiving preferential treatment and more benefits that citizens of the United States.
