Justice Dept. video instructs employers that it may be ‘discrimination’ to terminate immigrant workers when employment authorization expires

Evidently there is now a “right” to violate immigration laws in the eyes of the Department of Justice.  I wonder what other rules and regulations we can violate and then claim discrimination when the consequences arrive!  My guess is that conservative white males like me don’t qualify for any such exemptions, but I am not anxious to test that hunch.

However, if you are (for instance) a holder of an H-1B visa and it expires, I guess you have carte blanche.  The Washington Examiner reports:

The Justice Department released a video this week encouraging companies not to terminate immigrants after their employment authorization expires, and indicated that doing so is a form of discrimination.

The video is shot in a dimly lit office, where two actors discuss whether their fictional company should let go of some Salvadoran employees who have failed to provide updated paperwork on their immigration status.

After a discussion about whether retaining the workers would violate the law, a woman says, "I think this is an exception to that rule," and recommends that they contact the the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices before making any decisions.

"We want to follow the rules but we don't want to lose these workers or discriminate against them," she concludes. "They are too valuable."

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
