    The intention, Denver officials said, was benevolent.

    The Denver Sheriff’s Department set out to hire scores of deputies last year to lessen the burden on its staff and cut millions in overtime.

    It advertised for prospects, and included U.S. citizenship as a requirement.

    By this past spring, it had hired 200 deputies.

    The Justice Department did not congratulate the agency – instead, it slapped Colorado’s largest sheriff’s department with a $10,000 fine and a host of steps it must take to address what was described as discriminatory hiring.

    In a summary of the settlement on its website, the Justice Department said that in insisting on citizenship, the Denver Sheriff’s Department violated an anti-discrimination provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that forbids employers from hiring only U.S. citizens except in cases where it is mandated “by law, regulation, executive order or government contract.”

    The Justice Department said that the opportunity to work for the department should be open to anyone with the necessary skills who is authorized to be employed in the United States. That could be a legal permanent resident who has not naturalized, for example, or someone on a temporary visa who has a work permit.

    LEO's have to carry firearms. Firearms are not allowed to non citizens. Resident aliens can own firearms, but it is difficult.

    In Colorado, any legal resident, including green card holders, can carry a gun, and get a CCW permit.

    I don't think the Trump Justice department would pull this stunt. Why would we look for non-citizens to be hired for law enforcement positions?
    Not all discrimination is bad.

    You need a link??

    You're incapable of researching it yourself?

    You expect somebody to lead you to it?

    US: Denver Sheriff Illegally Excluded Non-Citizens in Hiring

    Next time, don't be so fucking lazy.

    Or, call your congressman and ask them to set up a Dept of Links for the Terminally Lazy

    Oops the link showed that this had nothing to do with illegals, and required the department to look at people with LEGAL work permits.

    Thanks. I guess the thread can end now. :thup:

    Interesting ---- there isn't a single - not one, nada, nil, zilch - reference to "illegal immigrants:"

    Why don't you actually read what is posted?

    Or, is your mind so twisted that you can only see things from one perspective?

    But -it's obvious that, since this isn't about the oppression of illegal immigrants, you have nothing to contribute.

    So --- go away.

    This thread isn't about illegals, it's about non-citizens.

    Federal law states that ONLY Green Card holders may possess firearms. Federal Law trumps State law.
