Discrimination in employment
Letter from [Alonso S. Perales] to Herbert L. Lavis, Acting Bexar County Relief Administrator, asking for information regarding Juan Padron's employment eligibility after he was dismissed from work due to his undocumented status. Perales reminds Mr. Lavis that the Civil Works Administration Act allows a person who declares intention to become a US citizen to keep their work authorization, which Juan Padron was successful in completing.
