State Sued for Discrimination; Won’t Hire Illegal Alien Who Used Fake SS -- By Judicial Watch

Here’s a good one; a Mexican man who came to the U.S. illegally as a youth is suing a state agency for discrimination because it refuses to hire him for using a fake Social Security to work for nearly a decade.

It’s as if a bold and extremely confident class of illegal alien has emerged in the last few years. The case comes out of northern California and it involves a naturalized American citizen who could easily serve as the poster child for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a special amnesty for youths brought to the U.S. illegally “through no fault of their own.”

The man in this case, Victor Guerrero, came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico when he was 11, according to the nonprofit legal group representing him. At the age of 15 he got a job in a restaurant using someone else’s Social Security. He did that for around seven years before somehow becoming a legal U.S. resident in 2007. Unbelievably, three years later he became an American citizen.

When Guerrero applied for a job as a prison guard with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the fake Social Security scam caught up to him. He passed all the required tests, both physical and written, and agreed to the mandatory background check. The state agency rightfully denied employment, stating that he lacked honesty, integrity and good judgment after learning about his Social Security scam.

Guerrero applied for the prison guard job a second time and again was refused the position over using a bogus Social Security to work for seven years. The State Personnel Board upheld the corrections department’s decision and this month Guerrero filed a discrimination lawsuit against both agencies in federal court. In his laughable complaint Guerrero claims that the policy excluding criminals from being hired violates fair employment laws and unfairly hurts Latino job applicants.

“By filing this case, Mr. Guerrero seeks to vindicate the right of work-authorized job applicants to be fairly considered for employment opportunities without their prior undocumented status being held against them,” says an announcement released by the group, Legal Aid Society, handling the case. It also quotes Guerrero playing the race card: “Those who are legally authorized to work should be able to do so regardless of their race, accent or the country they come from.”

The nonsense goes on as the group essentially implies this is a government-wide problem, writing that “agencies’ practice of denying employment opportunities…unfairly discriminates against persons of Hispanic national origin.” The problem will only get worse, according to the Legal Aid Society, as greater numbers of formerly undocumented individuals obtain legal authorization to work. “It is imperative that they not be kept from doing so by employers who aim to weed them out because of their ethnic or national origin.”
