US Citizens Can Now Be Arrested By Immigrants On American Soil

United States citizens can now be arrested on American soil by immigrants, after the Denver Sheriff Department was ordered to begin hiring non-citizens.

The Denver Sheriff Department had previously made U.S. citizenship a job requirement for its deputies.

Now they have been ordered to pay a fine, identify non-citizens who have been “discriminated against” in the past, and begin hiring immigrants.

Denver Post reports:

The sheriff’s department will pay a $10,000 fine and will have to sort through old applications to identify people who were eliminated from consideration because they were not U.S. citizens, according to a news release from the justice department.

The department must reconsider those applicants for future jobs, the justice department said.

In an emailed statement, sheriff’s spokesman Simon Crittle said, “The Denver Sheriff Department maintains its commitment to treat all people with dignity and respect, and is proud to have one of the most diverse workplaces in Colorado.

“While we didn’t commit this violation intentionally, we accept responsibility and are taking steps to clarify policy and amend language in hiring documents.”

Under the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Act, the sheriff’s department should have considered job applications from any work-authorized immigrant. Instead, the department made citizenship a job requirement in its employment postings.

The settlement with the justice department also requires the sheriff’s department to train its human resources staff on anti-discrimination provisions of federal immigration laws and reviews its procedures to make sure they are in line with federal law, the justice department said.

The department began hiring 200 deputies as part of its ongoing reform effort. The department needed a larger staff to ease deputy fatigue and reduce millions it was a spending in overtime. The move also was expected to give sergeants more time to supervise deputies rather than filling gaps in schedules inside the city’s two jails.

    i’m sorry…but what other country in the WORLD allows their police force to be manned by non-citizens? Doesn’t that go against all logic? Doesn’t that parallel the reason why we don’t allow a non-citizen to become president? …so as to thwart any potential security breaches or misaligned loyalty?
    WTF is going on in this country???

    Non-citizens wouldn’t have a legal passport or proper papers, most would be forgeries & non-legal documents. Is the American government allowed to accept tax money from non-US people? Is that legal for IRS to receive paycheck tax money from illegals? Or are these legal immigrants? Legal immigrants can join the US military. Is this article some kind of hate bait?

  • Skylar Thomas

    yes, if someone is in the US legally, has a work permit, they can work. You’re making it sound like illegals can be hired, they can’t.

    Does anyone know the law that requires this of the Denver police? I hope Trump requires all law enforcement to be citizens either natural born or naturalized. Would Syria, Iran, Iraq or Egypt allow Americans on work visas be apart of their law enforcement?

    As a retired Detroit Police Officer there would be a issue if a non-citizen tried to stop, detain, arrest or produce a weapon. Only citizens can enforce the law and only a citizen can posses a weapon.
