Government against the citizenry

Lest you be under the impression that the U.S. government’s job is to protect the interest of its citizenry, disabuse yourself of the notion:

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.

Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”

And this is the institution citizens are relying on to feed hungry Americans, heal sick Americans, educate young Americans, protect vulnerable Americans, defend Americans against foreign invasion, and provide a healthy American economy?

Why would you expect them to do so they don’t even take the side of actual American citizens?

Any faith you might still have in the U.S. government is very sadly, and badly, misplaced.
