Obama’s Department of Justice strikes again. In its efforts to “clean up” police departments around the country and rid them of any biases deemed unwelcome by the DOJ, they have levied a fine against the Denver Sheriff Department.

The Denver Sheriff Department has run afoul of the U.S. Department of Justice because it made U.S. citizenship a job requirement for its deputies during a hiring spree in 2015 and early 2016.

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.

Yes, you read that correctly. The DOJ, in all its political (not legal) wisdom, has decided that the Sheriff Dept should’ve hired at least a few ILLEGALS when they hired 200 deputies between 2015 and March 2016.


Face palm indeed!

I guess so! The thing is, the Denver Sheriff Department has had significant problems over the years. Undermanned, understaffed, allegations and cases of excessive use of force and more.


So, one would presume that the new recruits hired and trained would need to be very highly qualified ..right?

I would think so as would many others. Except the Department of Justice has its own backwards ideas of what “qualified” is. As a condition of the fine, the department will have to spend tax dollars on new anti-discrimination training AND review all applications submitted between 2015 and 2016 to find those illegals and offer them a job! 


I’m sure that will go over well with all the deputies and new recruits.

Here’s the thing. Denver is also a sanctuary city. Good ole Governor Hickenlooper joined with Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel in stompy foot tantrum right after the election regarding President-Elect Trump’s potential deportation orders of illegals. In those cities, Denver included, law enforcement doesn’t have to ask about citizenship or status of an illegal. In other words, law enforcement is told not to cooperate with federal law or federal agencies. And the Department of Justice is just fine with that!

Here’s another problem. If the Sheriff department DOES find an applicant who may have a green card, how will they know that the card is even legitimate?

“It appears that thousands of Green Cards have simply gone missing. In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States,” said DHS Inspector General Roth.

That’s right. Citizenship was given to 858 who were actually supposed to be deported. Over 19,00 green cards were sent out either as duplicates or with the wrong information on them. And the Department of Justice is demanding that the Denver Sheriff Department offer someone with a green card a job?? They are demanding that an illegal be hired whether he or she is even QUALIFIED to handle the job?

Working in law enforcement is a dangerous business. Even more so today. The War on Cops is getting worse as we tragically saw over the weekend. But the Department of Justice doesn’t care about that. They don’t care about the deputy who was targeted and shot in the face in St. Louis. The Department of Justice doesn’t care about the heinous murder of Detective Benjamin Marconi in San Antonio on Sunday. Nope, not one bit.

The Department of Justice priorities are very clear. Political correctness, illegals, and criminals rank well above the safety and security of Americans and especially above the rule of law.

    Hmm one more reason to stay out here in the sticks, and avoid going to Denver at all. It’s become such a cluster of libs, especially all the homeless that moved here for the legal pot. you can’t walk anywhere downtown without smelling clouds of the stuff.

    If you assume that all progressives want to destroy America as it was intended to be and turn us into an enclave of the One World Government run by technocrats, you won’t go far wrong and you won’t find them doing anything different than they are doing now.

  • GWB says:

    Oh, and if this were a conservative city, I would simply refuse to pay up. Since Denver is liberals all the way down, I say screw ’em. Gotta love when your opponents engage in friendly fire.

      Hey GWB… conservative waving at you from the liberal Denver enclave! LOL

      And actually sometimes there are bright spots in the liberal bent of Denver and CO. Voters demolished the pending healthcare amendment (ColoradoCare) by 80%… so there’s that. 😉
