Ron DeSantis: Upholding the law and doing the right thing for his state...


Once again, Los Angeles County’s radical progressive communist democrats like Hilda Solis and Sheila Kuehl are defying federal immigration laws to provide aid and comfort to illegal aliens, and by extension, to foreign nation-states, many of whom are hostile to the interests of the United States.

Los Angeles County Approves Motion to Waive Citizenship Requirements for Los Angeles County Government Employment

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of a motion authored by Chair Hilda L. Solis, Supervisor to the First District, and co-authored by Supervisor Sheila Kuehl to waive citizenship requirements for Los Angeles County government employment.

“Los Angeles County is a community of immigrants from each corner of the world,” said Chair Hilda Solis. “And while our County-government workforce reflects the community it represents, there is room for improvement. This motion seeks to make clear that the County, as one of the largest employers in the region, strives to be an inclusive and diverse workforce, and is committed to not excluding nor allowing citizenship to be a barrier to employment.”

[OCS: To allow illegal aliens to displace legal American citizens and legal immigrants with green cards, is both illegal and immoral. Not only will illegal aliens be able to capture unionized, no-cut positions with salaries, benefits, and pensions superior to those found in the private sector, they will also have access to confidential information and county assets.

As of 2018, an estimated 880,000 non-citizens had made the County their home, contributing significantly to improving the lives of us all. Yet there are barriers to County employment for them. For example, during its annual recruitment cycles to fill vacant entry-level deputy public defender positions, the Public Defender receives applications from otherwise qualified non-U.S. citizens who, although permitted to practice law in California, are disqualified from the examination process due to the Public Defender’s legacy citizenship requirement.

[OCS: It is a farce and a fraud upon legal citizens to permit those who have violated the law to obtain bar cards and serve as “officers of the court” or to allow these individuals to administer justice on behalf of other illegal aliens who have no right to be illegally in the United States or accessing resources designated for legal American citizens.]

“The County wants to provide culturally competent services and attract high-quality job candidates, but both goals are made more difficult by an out-of-date requirement that only U.S. citizens are eligible for certain classes of County jobs,” shared Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. “We are asking County Counsel to explore eliminating this requirement, because it prevents our workforce from reflecting the diversity of the County population and its diverse needs.”

[OCS: There is no moral or legal requirement that any government workforce must proportionately represent a particular class of individuals based on that class’s proportional representation in the general population or the community. Likewise, the term “culturally competent” is racist as it often excludes other deserving classes who may compete for designated jobs.]

Barriers to employment based on cultural, racial, ethnic, or religious characteristics are contrary to our core values. Citizenship overlaps these demographic characteristics,” shared Los Angeles County Public Defender Ricardo García. “This motion, by Supervisors Solis and Kuehl, will promote equity in hiring and give the Public Defender’s Office access to the most qualified applicants for employment, irrespective of their citizenship status. An immigrant’s experience will advance our vision, mission, and values to protect our clients’ legal and human rights and enable us to more readily realize my goal that our employees fully represent the demographics of the population that we serve.”

[OCS: Citizenship must trump cultural, racial, ethnic, or religious characteristics in any sovereign country, state, or municipality. No other country, especially Mexico, tolerates the existence of illegal aliens or rewards them with public assistance and desirable government jobs.]

The motion directs County Counsel, in consultation with the Department of Human Resources and the Chief Executive Office, to report back within 14 days with an analysis of the Board’s authority to waive any citizenship requirement for Board-appointed County officers or Department Heads, unless a citizenship requirement is imposed by state law, and to direct County Officers to waive any citizenship requirement for employees they have or will appoint, unless state law explicitly imposes a citizenship requirement; as well as the effects of a Government Code section 24001 waiver for Board-appointed County office(s) and their employees/appointed deputies, and the method(s) to accomplish such a waiver. In addition, the motions directs the Chief Executive Office’s Legislative Affairs, in consultation with County Counsel and the Department of Consumer and Business Affairs’ Office of Immigrant Affairs, to seek legislative changes to amend the California Government Code to either eliminate, or grant local entities the authority to eliminate, the citizenship requirement for Disaster Service Workers. <Source>

The idea that an illegal alien’s cultural experience will advance the provision of government services or be more responsive to citizen requests for assistance is nonsensical.

This is a significant violation of federal law that prohibits individuals from working without a social security number, a green card, officially known as a Permanent Resident Card that permits an individual to live and work permanently in the United States, or a specialized visa that allows the visa holder to live and work temporarily in the United States.

Bottom line…

Hilda Solis enjoyed strong union and Communist Party USA backing when she ran for U.S. Congress in 2000 (Source) and is the darling of the progressive communist democrats in California. They do not wish America well and are trying to destroy our nation, constitution, the rule of law, and institutions from within.

Unfortunately, many legal citizens cannot see the truth and support the progressive communist democrats.

We are so screwed.
