who cares...some people want to work to better themselves, some people want handouts to not have to work, those two types of people are completely different.  give me those that want to work to contribute to society.

I agree, but should noncitizens be hired in government positions?  Also, does this eliminate the I9 form that is required of all people hired to work in the U.S. or are they just going to ignore this requirement because they don't like it?

This is city government though, LA is an international city that's going to do what they can to remain that way. If they find a guy that's been a great assistant city manager in Guadalajara or Liverpool or Brasilia they're not going to let something like citizenship get in the way of a qualified person they want.

So they will just ignore the citizenship requirements for employment that me and other employers must follow.  Guess they will just continue to make up the rules as they go along similar to their DA deciding what laws he wants to prosecute and which ones he doesn't.

Microsoft employs non citzens, as well as Exxon or Baylor Scott & White. What is the city doing that's so different than that?

I understand the difference in the two, what I'm asking for clarification on is your statement

What's LA planning to do that you and other employers have to follow? Do you work for a city where there's a law that says you can't also hire a non citizen?

The i9 allows for 3 selections that aren’t citizens. They are noncitizen national, lawful permanent resident, and alien authorized to work.

Should those folks be allowed to fill government positions?

Of course. Street sweeper can be a government position. Not all government jobs are vital to our national security. I’ve worked in government desk jobs with noncitizens (permanent resident) and they are the same as everyone else.

I have no problem with those who are legally here obtaining employment. My question is with this being LA will they verify immigration status?
