In what may seem like a joke, Mr. “Buy American” Biden’s DOJ is investigating Elon Musk and SpaceX for hiring Americans citizens over non-citizens.
According to the DOJ, in March 2020 a non-U.S. citizen complained. The person inquired about the position of Technology Strategy Associate at SpaceX, and the company asked about his citizenship status. DOJ attorney Lisa Sandoval stated that SpaceX “ultimately failed to hire him for the position. Their reason? Because he is not a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.”
In what should be a no-brainer, the Biden putzes decided to prove that indeed nobody in his “administration” has a functioning brain. Thus, according to CNBC, the DOJ filed a request with a judge “to order SpaceX to comply with an administrative subpoena for documents related to how the company hires.”
The DOJ asked that SpaceX comply with its subpoena within two weeks.
To put this clearly, a technology company involved in the some of the most technologically intensive operations on the planet can’t make a decision on who it hires? And certainly the disgruntled person didn’t get the job because of his status, and not his lack of qualifications.
Still, the applicant filed a complaint of employee discrimination with the DOJ’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) on May 29, 2020. The IER enforces the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which has an anti-discrimination provision prohibiting citizenship status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee.
IER emailed SpaceX on June 8 that an investigation was underway. Then she asked SpaceX to hand over information and documents related to its hiring and employment eligibility verification processes. The letter stated, “IER’s investigation is not … limited only to the specific allegations and/or claims that [the Charging Party] made in the charge summarized above. Our investigation therefore may also explore whether [SpaceX] engages in any pattern or practice of discrimination that 8 U.S.C. § 1324b prohibits.”
A pattern or practice of discrimination?
Exactly the type of thing our government should waste taxpayer money on. Investigating if foreigners might not get the treatment of U.S. citizens in hiring. Only in braindead Biden Moronville would such nonsense even be discussed.
The way I heard it, hiring illegal immigrants was a punishable crime. Of course, that was common sense I grew up with, so I made sure it is still true. And sure enough, a simple internet search confirmed my beliefs.
If you engage in a pattern of hiring undocumented immigrants, you could face criminal fines of up to $3,000 per unauthorized worker and up to 6 months in jail. … Employers can also be held responsible if they utilize contractors who hire undocumented immigrants.
So wait, Musk is under the looking glass because he followed the law? Get ready for liberals to reverse those laws ASAP.
That’s not all folks!
The Biden Administration is willing to take their sparring far past the plight of the illegal alien. Because Musk is the richest man in the world. As such, he’s a big believer in free enterprise. And he’s a threat to the left.
Now, Musk is feeling the ‘love’ dished out by our new administration.
As the Hindustan Times adds:
In the past week alone, Musk has tangled with the Federal Aviation Administration over a December rocket test flight that ended in flames and begrudgingly agreed to recall some Tesla cars at highway-safety officials’ urging. And while he announced Tuesday he was taking a break from Twitter — the platform that previously got him fined by the Securities and Exchange Commission — Musk had already used his favorite social-media megaphone in the preceding days to roil stocks of companies from Etsy Inc. to Shopify Inc. during a retail-trading frenzy.
The potential for more conflict is building as Biden works to confirm his cabinet secretaries and reinvigorate agencies following the Donald Trump era. Democratic administrations have historically been tougher on industry regulation, and Musk’s empire intersects with government oversight of automobiles, spaceflight, energy, telecommunications and medical equipment.
To simplify, Musk is a thorn in Biden’s side. And the brilliant billionaire doesn’t mind taking on babbling Biden. Because SpaceX isn’t made it China, nor will it sell out to the leftist regime.
