Sued if You Do, Sued if You Don't!

The latest from ObamaLand, home of fantasy-government.

Employers who hire illegal immigrants can be fined, but the Obama administration warned this week that they also can be fined for asking legal immigrants to show their green cards before hiring them.

The Justice Department said a valid driver's license and a Social Security card are usually sufficient to show that a person is authorized to work. Requesting a green card amounts to "immigration-related employment discrimination," said Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general for civil rights. Al, quoting the LATimes

Yah, but as we all know, a SocSec card is easily forged, and States issue driver's licenses without immigration documentation all day, every day.

Just another example of how screwed up our government is.

Well, this will certainly make employers want to hire people.

Yay jobs!

Meanwhile, illegals who work for the employers who hire them (either knowingly or unknowingly) walk free.

In related news, ICE is considering forcing illegal aliens who aren't also felonious convicts to walk.
