Obama's DOJ Fines Denver Sheriff Department For Not Hiring Non-Citizens

Image result for department of injusticePresident Obama’s Justice Department is penalizing the Denver Sheriff Department for making U.S. citizenship a requirement for applicants.

The sheriff’s department will now have to pay a $10,000 fine for its hiring practices in 2015 and 2016. Additionally, the DOJ is requiring them to comb through old applications for those who were disqualified for being a non-citizen and consider those people for future positions.

“The Justice Department’s investigation found that from approximately Jan. 1, 2015, until approximately March 23, 2016, the Denver Sheriff Department discriminated based on citizenship status by requiring applicants for deputy sheriff positions to be U.S. citizens and publishing job postings with U.S. citizenship requirements, in violation of the INA,” the DOJ wrote in a statement.

“The INA’s anti-discrimination provision prohibits employers from limiting jobs to U.S. citizens except where the employer is required to do so by law, regulation, executive order or government contract.  The Denver Sheriff Department was not subject to one of the INA’s exceptions.”

The settlement also requires that the sheriff’s department train its human resources employees on the INA’s anti-discrimination provision and change its policies to comply with those requirements.

Trump needs to use his bully pulpit to derail these abuses by Pres. Obama... now.  He can call on the civil service to obey the current laws and where the siting president clearly violates the laws the Civil Service is obliged ... mandated by law... to refuse the Presidents orders and where possible to offer a lawful alternative solution... where impossible to do so ... simply ignore the order.

The law provides for disqualification of candidates based on various issues relevant to citizenship and residence when hiring law enforcement... Most Sheriff's Departments require one to be a LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT OF THE STATE AND COUNTY where they are employed.  Illegal aliens would be automatically disqualified and any resident alien is not a PERMANENT RESIDENT of any State or County... They are here on a conditional VISA and permit.

Sheriff departments spend lots of money training individuals to operate under their Local, State, and Federal Regulations and laws... hiring non-permanent residents or individuals who may not remain eligible for residence in the US is a no brainer... except for the INS and evidently the lawyers or law firm that apparently threw this case in order to establish bad precedent rule of law.  This case needs to be appealed all the way to the US Supreme Court if necessary.  We don't need Aliens of any status filling our law enforcement agencies.

There are maintenance jobs available on occasion, janitorial. So much for Americans first but THAT ends very soon !  The damage Obama has done to our nation will take decades to repair. Some can never be repaired, there is no way to repair the dead police officers, Ambassador Stevens and all the others who were killed during this administration !

Denver Sheriff's Dept. should tell zero's DOJ to "fold it and stick it - -in their broom closet"!

Some of the news we're getting lately seems so ridiculous I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't fake news.  Can our government really be that stupid?  I can honestly say I spend so much time shaking my head in disbelief that I'm worried I have a permanent neck injury.  Do you think that's grounds for suing some entity?  LOL

Obama's DOJ will next go after the Sheriff for not hiring the voting dead.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
