Los Angeles County has announced that it will now offer jobs in county government to illegal aliens.
Last week, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously with no debate to cancel the U.S. citizenship requirement for county government jobs.
According to Fox News:
The policy includes exceptions for positions where U.S. citizenship is required by state and federal law. The motion was authored by Chair Hilda L. Solis, and co-authored by Sheila Kuehl. The vote took place last week.
Those wishing to work for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, as well as any peace officers hired by the county, will still be subject to citizenship requirements.
According to the adopted motion, the new policy “ensures that applicants for employment are fairly and equitably considered, without regard to national origin, citizenship or other non-merit factors that are not substantially related to successful performance of the duties of the position,” the Los Angeles Daily News reported.
The decision started last year when the board asked the Office of the County Counsel and the Department of Human Resources to study the idea of nixing the citizenship requirement in preparation for their move.
The board was advised that no county or state law requires citizenship, so the requirement could be safely dropped.
Solis said that dropping the citizenship requirement would help country government to “look like” the citizens as there are 880,000 illegals living in L.A. County.
This is how Democrats destroy our country, folks. First they lower the bar for prosecution of illegals, then they throw the door open to allow millions to flood in, then they make being a U.S. citizen meaningless.Commentary
