Dozens of illegal immigrants were fired from their jobs this week after ICE challenged many of the workers’ immigration status. Most of the firings were from the Chipotle restaurant, which thought it acceptable to hire criminals.
Naturally, a Minnesota libtard rights group is up in arms over the firings.
A Minnesota immigration rights group is protesting what it calls “mass firings” of Chipotle workers. According to the group, around 50 of the restaurant’s Latino workers have been fired in the last week.
The Minnesota Immigration Rights Action Committeee (MIRAC), a local group that fights for the legalization of undocumented workers, says employees at local Chipotle stores came forward, saying they were fired over questions about their immigration status.
“We started to piece together there was something larger going on than a few people fired at one store,” said MIRAC member Brad Sigal. “It appears to be a statewide attack on immigrant worker who are longtime employees most of them been working there for years.”
“It is an I-9 audit,” said Sigal. “They check the paperwork and fire anyone who can’t immediately prove they have the right to work. An action like this on a mass scale before the holidays is not consistent with the image they have cultivated.”
Exit question: Why do immigration groups think that illegals even have rights?
