In what appears to be an "enforcement only" action against veteran U.S. employees of the the great state of Pennsylvania, Mary Broughton and Judy Miller were immediately fired from their jobs working at the U.S. Courthouse and the William S. Moorhead Federal Building in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
According to the report...
Company officials were informed last week that both Ms. Miller, who's worked for the company for 20 years, and Ms. Broughton, who has 24 years, were deemed "unsuitable," by Homeland Security to work in the federal buildings...No reasons were cited at the time, and no answers have been forthcoming...They assume it's a problem with their paperwork.Unfortunately, there is no talk of any Comprehensive Reform for trusted U.S. Citizens to remain employed while they appeal the decision of the Department of Homeland Security. No one in the Bush Administration took into consideration (like they did with illegal aliens) that their decision to have these ladies fired would impact their families. It is decisions such as these...punish the law abiding, give a legal pass to the lawless...that causes me to be more resistant to the President's Comprehensive Enforcement and Immigration Reform.
Judy Miller (the white lady), who greets each customer in line with friendly conversation, just wants to get back to her spot behind the cash register.
Mary Broughton (the black lady), who cooks for hundreds of people each day like she would for her own family, misses her work, too.
But for now, the women are barred from their positions in the cafeterias of the federal buildings Downtown because they failed to pass required background checks with the Department of Homeland Security.
In order for these women to get any justice, they have to litterally embarrass the administration by doing the talk show radio and cable news parade. In addition, their situation has to get mention on the floor of either the U.S. House or Senate. The need for that kind of effort just to get moderately paid jobs back is ridiculous!
Before I can have a discussion about how people here in the U.S. illegally can remain here legally, I must first be assured that U.S. Citizens who are legally gainfully employed are not "railroaded" by President's Comprehensive Enforcement and Immigration Reform plans.
