The Washington Post reports that the Obama Justice Department has filed yet another lawsuit in Arizona. This one is intended to intimidate employers into more permissive hiring practices, which will translate into more jobs for illegal aliens. And therefore more undocumented Democrats.
The Justice Department filed another lawsuit against immigration practices by Arizona authorities, saying Monday that a network of community colleges acted illegally in requiring noncitizens to provide their green cards before they could be hired for jobs...
In Monday's lawsuit, Justice officials said the colleges discriminated against nearly 250 noncitizen job applicants by mandating that they fill out more documents than required by law to prove their eligibility to work. That violated the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, the department said... The government is asking a judge within the Justice Department unit to order the Maricopa colleges to pay a civil penalty of $1,100 for each of the 247 non-U.S.-citizen job applicants it says were required to produce the additional documents. It says the colleges ended the practice in January.
A quarter of a million dollar fine will definitely have employers thinking twice about checking job candidates' bonafides. And that is the intent.
And it's but one step among many.
• Humiliating: The Obama State Department reported Arizona's new immigration law to the United Nations' Human Rights Council for its review. A bigger cast of despots, tyrants and torturers you'd be hard-pressed to assemble anywhere. The UN 'Human Rights' Council includes China, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Russia, Cuba, Pakistan, Tunisia and Egypt. The State Department is asking the council to review possible human rights violations by Arizona.
• Demeaning: The Obama 'Justice' Department has also announced its intent to investigate Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Arizona's popular law enforcement official. His 'crime'? Pursuing illegal immigrants.
• Destructive: In the midst of a civil war in Mexico, with at least 28,000 fatalities, President Obama decided to declare war -- on Arizona. Its lawsuit against the beleaguered state was preceded by a series of affronts.
The president has stiffed Gov. Jan Brewer's call for meaningful assistance in efforts to secure the border. And the White House has accused Arizona's junior senator, Republican Jon Kyl, of lying about an Oval Office discussion with the president over comprehensive immigration reform... [and] Brewer was appalled to learn the Justice Department's intentions not from the Justice Department but from an interview done by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with an Ecuadorian TV outlet.
This administration -- and its 'Justice' Department -- is completely out of control. It is acting without restraint and in clear violation of federal law. Its one goal is not protecting American citizens--it is to create as many Democrat voters for the midterm elections as possible.
America, it's November or never. And that's no joke.
