DOJ issues insane fine against Colorado Sheriff's Office
The Denver Sheriff Department will accept a penalty from the Department of Justice after a federal probe found it wrongly made U.S. citizenship a job requirement during a recent hiring spree.This si the opposite of what the law in the US is. The law is still on the books that makes it illegal to hire someone in the country illegally. Citizenship is a legitimate requirement for a job, especially in law enforcement. Hopefully, a new attorney general will stop this insanity. It is just another example of why liberals should not be in charge of enforcing the law.
The sheriff's department — the biggest sheriff's office in Colorado — will pay a $10,000 fine after it required applications for deputy sheriff jobs to be U.S. citizens when hiring from the beginning of 2015 through March 2016. The department went on a hiring spree of 200 deputies as part of its ongoing reform.
The department will also have to go through old applications to find applicants who were eliminated because of their citizenship status and reconsider them for future jobs.
