The Beaverton School District hired an illegal alien as a teacher. It appears the Peruvian native overstayed his student Visa and began working. And the District? According to the Zero today:
For the past two years, , a native of Peru, has worked as a teacher in the two-way language immersion program. Vilela Orozco claimed he repeatedly reminded the school district over that time to sponsor his H1-B work visa, but the paperwork was never completed. All along, was working illegally. [emph mine]
In a galling admission, the School District says it was going to fire him but for the UNION ATTORNEY getting involved. We are to believe now, that Union politics trumps U.S. law?
The dispute surfaced in June, when the school district became aware of 's illegal status, fired him, and then rehired him after a union attorney intervened. The district offered him $3,000, the cost of the sponsorship, for his resignation. He refused. He now remains on unpaid administrative leave.Think about this: rules at Beaverton School District--indeed an example of one of the best run Districts in the state--are so lax that school officials don't know whom they hire to teach your child. He's on UNPAID leave but still accruing his pension and benefits. He's an illegal alien and a government entity--the school district--has no choice but to keep his bennies flowing?
Where's the I-9 form? Where's the background check on this guy? He may seem like a nice enough guy, but does he have any prior arrests? Convictions? We don't know because THEY DIDN'T CHECK. How do I know that? Because they HIRED him AND DIDN'T APPARENTLY KNOW HE WAS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN.
I'd sure like to see the process by which we hired this man.
Interesting they apparently couldn't find a citizen or legal alien to do the job.
So Beaverton School District, how did this guy get a job in the first place?
