Waterloo Settles Citizenship Bias Case

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- The Justice Department says the city of Waterloo will stop illegally requiring candidates for firefighter positions to be U.S. citizens.
   The department said Thursday that Waterloo will also pay a $13,000 fine and give another chance to a candidate who wasn't considered for a firefighter position because of his citizenship status.
   The steps settle a discrimination complaint filed by Bryand Acuna, a legal permanent resident who was interested in a firefighter job the city advertised last year. The advertisement said applicants must be U.S. citizens, and Acuna therefore wasn't considered.
   Justice said the citizenship requirement violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
   The settlement allows Acuna to take hiring tests for the position. If results show he would have gotten it, he'll be hired with back pay.
