An Item in the Immigration and Nationality Act includes the following: 3. Document abuse - during the Form I-9 process, when employers request more or different documents than are required to verify employment eligibility, reject reasonably genuine-looking documents, or specifically request certain documents with an intent to discriminate on the basis of national origin or citizenship status. This may appear to be in conflict with the recent passing of the Arizona Law empowering police to arrest anyone that they suspect is illegally in the U.S. who is found to be without proper documentation. What about U.S. citizens that are not aware that they have to always carry around proper documentation? How will this requirement be brought to the public and fairly enforced? There is a grant announcement titled: Public Education Programs Concerning the Anti-discrimination Provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act. It offers 100,00 per award with up to 12 awards being anticipated. The program is designed to develop and implement cost-effective approaches to educate potential victims of employment discrimination about their rights and to educate employers about their responsibilities under INA’s anti-discrimination provision. http://www.grants.gov/search/search.do;jsessionid=GDrFLXyCpfmzBHL9G3HG0L6GVfdmvb335Qn1Jzc2pBYy9VlgwMQL ******* These programs are designed to offer tangible solutions to the critical issues that are challenging the quality of life in various populations.
