What happens when diversity and equality supplant common sense?
On Wednesday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) released the “Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement” report, which highlights hiring practices in the law enforcement community. In the report. the DOJ discusses problems associated with diversifying police forces, claiming racial diversity is more important than being a law-abiding citizen.
Researchers and practitioners have also highlighted that the use of criminal background checks, which are a regular part of the screening process for many agencies, is likely to disproportionately impact racial minority applicants since, for a variety of reasons, individuals from those communities are more likely to have contact with the criminal justice system.
Well, well this is just a natural extension to the Left’s war on cops isn’t it? And it goes so well along with the Left’s sick devotion to “equality”. And, as long as we are making thugs into police, why not illegal immigrants too?
Allowing work-authorized non-U.S. citizens to work in state and local law enforcement, particularly in jurisdictions with large immigrant populations, can enable agencies to more closely represent the diversity of their community. Especially as agencies work to serve communities with a large percentage of limited English proficient (LEP) residents, excluding officers who are not U.S. citizens may significantly limit the number of applicants who speak languages other than English.
What could possibly go wrong! Just another effort by the left to destroy America.
