ACLU sues Columbia County Oregon for refusing to hire illegal aliens -like Pedro the  Midget Wetback
The American Civil Liberties Union joined with state and local worker activists Thursday to jointly file a lawsuit in Columbia County Circuit Court aimed at scuttling a measure passed in November that would make it a crime for employers inside the county to hire illegal aliens.

Um, it was already a crime for employers to hire illegal aliens. The problem was that there was no one enforcing the law at the federal level.

The measure would require employers to verify the legality of their employees through E-Verify, a U.S. Department of Homeland Security-operated database where employers can input data, such as Social Security information, and retrieve information regarding a person’s legal status to work in the United States.

Everyone who gets a job must “prove” that they are legally eligible to work. This means that they fill out Form I-9. E-Verify just gives employers the ability to make sure that the information given on that form is not fraudulent.

It also gives everyday citizens the assurance that their Social Security Number isn’t being used by an illegal alien for work purposes.

So a measure that increases employment opportunities for eligible workers and prevents ID theft is being opposed by the ACLU and a few folks who think that enforcing the law equals “intolerance.”
