Immigration bill outlaws 'discrimination' against illegals!

The immigration reform bill would make it illegal for employees to discriminate against the millions of newly documented illegal aliens who would be granted provisional status, a WND review of the legislation has found.
Case of such discrimination would be referred to the Justice Department’s Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices.
The text of the bill makes it an “unfair immigration-related employment practice” for a “person, other entity, or employment agency, to discriminate against any individual because of such individual’s national origin or citizenship status.”
The anti-discrimination law applies to the following:
The bill makes an exception for cases in which a newly legalized alien is competing for the same job with a U.S. citizen or national or against another newly legalized alien provided the two competitors are “equally qualified.”
Another exception is a business that employs fewer than three employees or if discrimination is necessary to comply with federal, state or local law, or a federal government contract.
Employers found guilty of discrimination could be fined a penalty of between $2,000 and $25,000 for each individual discriminated against. The fee depends on the “unfair” employment practice.
