Immigration bill outlaws 'discrimination' against illegals!
Justice Department to prosecute 'unfair practicesBy: Aaron Klein / WND
The text of the bill makes it an “unfair immigration-related employment practice” for a “person, other entity, or employment agency, to discriminate against any individual because of such individual’s national origin or citizenship status.”
The anti-discrimination law applies to the following:
- The hiring of the individual for employment.
- The verification of the individual’s eligibility to work in the United States.
- The firing of the individual.
Another exception is a business that employs fewer than three employees or if discrimination is necessary to comply with federal, state or local law, or a federal government contract.
Employers found guilty of discrimination could be fined a penalty of between $2,000 and $25,000 for each individual discriminated against. The fee depends on the “unfair” employment practice.
