Denver County’s sheriff office has been handed a $10,000 fine by Obama’s DOJ because they did not hire non-citizens as deputies. I guess this is just a parting gift from Obama before he vacates office to slap the face of the American laws.
From the Washington Examiner:
The Denver Sheriff Department will accept a penalty from the Department of Justice after a federal probe found it wrongly made U.S. citizenship a job requirement during a recent hiring spree.
The sheriff’s department — the biggest sheriff’s office in Colorado — will pay a $10,000 fine after it required applications for deputy sheriff jobs to be U.S. citizens when hiring from the beginning of 2015 through March 2016. The department went on a hiring spree of 200 deputies as part of its ongoing reform.
The Justice Department made the announcement on Monday, saying the sheriff’s department violated the Immigration and Nationality Act without having an exemption.

We have federal laws for a reason, but again Obama feels above those laws.
