They are saying they don't understand how she slipped through HR as a non citizen. I can tell you how.

HR is filled with liberals and women, who see a minority woman as someone who should be propelled to the top, and likely never bothered to ask her citizenship status because it's a micro aggression to ask where she is from.

Every application I've ever seen in my life asks if you're a US Citizen. I don't know how they could have fucked that one up.

She must have lied repeatedly which is a crime

Right, there is a whole section in pretty much every piece of HR paperwork I've seen that asks if you're a US Citizen, or have an eligible work visa - somebody either dropped the ball or lied on their application.

Well, she checked 'Yes'. What the hell else were they supposed to do?

That's silly. the INA only requires verifying only eligibility of employment, and as such typical applications ask if the applicant can be lawfully employed in the US (and may ask for Tax ID, which can be ITIN provided to non-citizens)...but do not ask about citizenship status. This particular position requiring citizenship was mandated by a city ordinance, not any kind of national norm or standard... and the city was at fault for not asking that question.

Additionally, this individual has been a permanent resident and lawfully employable since 2007.

This foolish mistake on the city's part aside... why would a business want to ADD restrictions on who they can hire (i.e. by having to validate citizenship status)? We want a larger pool of talent/candidates, not a smaller pool.

Even liberals and women know about the fuckin' I-9.

That was my first thought. Basic result of gynocentrism, and its attempt at equal (superior) outcome for women. All while extracting as much agency from them as possible.
