It is time to starve Janet Napolitano Financially for destroying American Lives by giving jobs to companies who refuse to hire American workers for jobs in America

I learned a long time ago in the Navy that if you want a lesson to stay with a man or woman, you hit them in their pocketbook.

The best way to do that is to make it so that she experiences what Displaced American workers have experienced.

Only when she has lived like this will she understand.

At the Nov. 17 meeting, UCSF systems administrator Hank Nguyen poignantly told the Regents – including UC president Janet Napolitano and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom – that he received two notices on the same day last July. One was a $35,000 tuition bill for his daughter, who studies at UC Santa Cruz, while the other was his layoff notice.

“My daughter asked ‘should I continue my education?’ I did not know what to tell her,” said Nguyen, who has worked with the university for six years.

“I was heartbroken,” Nguyen later told India-West. “This is a very, very, difficult time for me. I’m so proud to be a part of UCSF and I want to keep working here,” he said, scolding the Regents for valuing profits over loyal employees.

His daughter is studying to be a software engineer. “I wonder about encouraging her in this field, because so many of our jobs are being outsourced.”

Nguyen said he is uncertain about whether his daughter will be able to continue her education, now that he has been laid off. “Her future depends on me being able to find a job quickly.”

The IT worker has looked for other employment – both inside and outside the UC system – but said jobs in the software industry are hard to come by for a worker who is over 50 years old. “I don’t put my age on my resume, but they can tell by the year I graduated from college, and my job experience,” he said.

Jelger Kalmijn, president of the University of Professional and Technical Employees of the Communications Workers of America, told the Regents: “People in the U.S. are sick and tired of losing their decent jobs.”

“We’re not going to participate in a race-to-the-bottom, where working people are fighting each other all across the world to see who can be exploited the most,” said the union leader.

“I urge you to take leadership and stop this outrageous outsourcing. It’s going to save you a couple pennies for massive political cost, for massive financial costs in the long run, and for massive security costs. It makes absolutely no sense,” said Kalmijn.

Keith Pavlik, also of the CWA, noted that the jobs will be filled by H-1B temporary visa workers. Indians make up the majority of H-1B visa holders. “When president Napolitano was head of DHS – the Department of Homeland Security – she said: ‘our top obligation is to American workers, to make sure American workers have jobs.’ We’re asking her to fulfill that promise now,” said Pavlik, a UCSF employee.

WILLIAM A. STOCK, my life has been on hold since 2003 and I don’t hear you telling my story when you talk about #h1b ‘s.

Twelve years ago, our client AJ entered the U.S. to work on an H-1B visa, and his employer started the green card process.

Like many H-1B visa holders, AJ was born in India and works in the information technology field. He did development work in-house at a large company, taking business-users’ requests for new features and applications and making them reality.

Due to the tight IT job market, his employer was able to obtain a certification from the Department of Labor (DOL) that there were insufficient numbers of qualified U.S. workers available with his skills, and that his employment would not adversely affect the U.S. workforce.

Problem is, AJ did adversely affect the U.S. workforce as did the rest of the non-immigrant guest workers whose numbers are shown on this H-1B Hunting License Shopping List.

shopping_list2015_q4

For every one of those numbers shown above, one American has been adversely affected.

Yet, I do not hear you or the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) telling our stories.

Why is that?

Does your organization need a website but you don’t want to manage it and you want forums and subscriber only pages for $6.57 per day, 365 days per year?

I’ve been managing my own site here at Keep America At Work since 2007.

Lately I’ve been help some others set up their sites and I’m finding out that they don’t have the expertise to manage their site and don’t want to gain that expertise.

This made me realize that maybe there is a market for somebody like myself to create and maintain these sites and take the user prepared content and post that on a daily or weekly basis.

If this is something that you might be interested in, here are the terms that I am offering:

  • One time setup fee of $100.00
  • Monthly fee of $200.00 which is essentially $6.57 per day

I will work with you to get the look and feel that you want, and then I will work with you to make sure your content stays up to date and easy to find.

Interested?

Once again the Department of Justice puts people who are not citizens ahead of American Citizens in America

This is wrong.

They are not American Citizens.

This is America and we must protect the American Citizens ahead of anybody else.

I can understand not allowing race or any type of discrimination against Americans.

But, these folks are not citizens, period.

Justice Department Settles Immigration-Related Discrimination Claim Against Aldine Independent School District

The Justice Department announced today that it reached a settlement with the Aldine, Texas, Independent School District resolving allegations that the district discriminated against work-authorized non-citizens in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).   The district is the ninth largest school district in the state with an enrollment of almost 70,000 students.

The department’s investigation, conducted by the Civil Rights Division’s Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), found that Aldine required non-U.S. citizens, but not similarly-situated U.S. citizens, to present specific documents when reverifying their employment eligibility once their original documents expired.  The INA’s anti-discrimination provision prohibits employers from making specific documentary demands based on citizenship or national origin when verifying or reverifying an employee’s authorization to work.  Under the INA, all workers, including non-U.S. citizens, must be allowed to choose whichever valid documentation they would like to present from the lists of acceptable documents to prove their work authorization, and employers cannot limit employees’ choice of documentation because of their citizenship or national origin.

“Employers must ensure that their human resources staff understand proper hiring practices,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.  “The INA prohibits discrimination because of citizenship status and the Civil Rights Division continues to enforce this statute around the country to remind all employers of their compliance obligations as well as to vindicate the rights of employees.”

As part of the agreement, Aldine will revise its policies and procedures, pay a $140,000 civil penalty and implement a three-year program to train employees, students and students’ parents on the requirements of the INA’s anti-discrimination provision.  Specifically, the training program, which will be developed by Aldine staff, will be focused on educating adult participants in Aldine’s parent literacy/English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, 12th grade students enrolled in certain classes and the school district’s employees.

OSC is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.  Among other things, the statute prohibits citizenship status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices; retaliation and intimidation.

For more information about protections against employment discrimination under immigration laws, call OSC’s worker hotline at 1-800-255-7688 (1-800-237-2515, TTY for hearing impaired); call OSC’s employer hotline at 1-800-255-8155 (1-800-237-2515, TTY for hearing impaired); sign up for a free webinar at www.justice.gov/crt/about/osc/webinars.php, email osccrt@usdoj.gov

Trial Attorney Richard Crespo of the Civil Rights Division handled this matter.

Sahil Kapur, How is that you and Bloomberg do not understand the difference between legal immigration and non-immigrant guest worker visas?

Could it be that you are trying to confuse the average reader by hiding behind immigration when it is not immigration at all?

First came the U.S. attorney general pick of Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, a crusader against visa programs who helped write Trump’s campaign platform, and who pro-immigration advocates say could create a chilling climate for prospective newcomers. On Monday, Trump said in a video message that he’ll immediately order the Department of Labor to “investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker,” seen by some as a step toward his proposals to cut legal immigration.

While Trump’s vows to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall on the southern border drew the most attention during the campaign, the president-elect may be able to move more quickly on his promises to go after legal immigration programs pertaining to skilled guest workers.

Immigration lawyers say Trump’s election has already given clients pause.

“I have a client who was looking at an O-1 visa,” said Greg Siskind, an attorney based in Memphis, referring to a category available to people who demonstrate “extraordinary ability” in fields such as arts, sciences or athletics. “She was an entertainer from Europe who was very successful. And she said she’s got choices in the world and that this is not the greatest time to be coming to the U.S.”

“I’ve had other clients who’ve told me maybe this is the time to think about Canada or countries other than the U.S.,” he said. “I have entrepreneurs right now who are thinking through whether they should also be looking at Canada.”

Paul Herzog, an immigration lawyer based in Los Angeles, said some of his clients are eagerly speeding up their applications for fear of rules tightening under Trump. “Many are in wait-and-see mode,” he said.

Trump’s transition website promises to “reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers,” echoing language that Sessions and other so-called restrictionists have used to go after visa programs. His campaign website promises “new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first.” In addition, it promises to pick immigrants “based on their likelihood of success” and financial self-sufficiency, and to “vet applicants to ensure they support America’s values, institutions and people.”

Time to drain the swamp in the Department of Justice

What do they not understand?

This is America.

We are American Citizens.

If they want to apply for jobs, they need to become American Citizens first.

And it is way past time that our Department of Justice stood up for Americans in America.

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.

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.

The Justice Department made the announcement on Monday, saying the sheriff’s department violated the Immigration and Nationality Act without having an exemption.
