Lawyers in a class-action lawsuit against the Phoenix immigration attorney have reviewed the lawsuit, and they say they don’t believe the judge in the case is biased.
The lawyers say that after more than three years of litigation, Phoenix immigration lawyers have not yet received any of the $1.4 million in back pay the plaintiffs sought in an immigration lawsuit filed by two Phoenix women who said they were victims of racial discrimination when they applied for work visas.
The plaintiffs, Jennifer Guevara and Rachel McBride, sued Phoenix immigration officials on behalf of three Hispanic women who worked as lawyers at Phoenix’s immigration division.
They were denied work visas, and the plaintiffs alleged that Phoenix officials discriminated against them.
Phoenix Immigration has not filed any response to the lawsuit.
But attorneys in the class-actions lawsuit say the plaintiffs have not been provided the same opportunities to defend themselves as other minority plaintiffs in the same lawsuit.
“We are not seeking a monetary award, we are seeking a remedy,” said attorney Peter Vazquez.
“We believe this case has been dismissed and the claims should be dismissed as well.”
The lawsuit is based on the Arizona Human Rights Act, which requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for minorities in hiring, hiring and promotion.
The plaintiffs say the Arizona law does not protect them from discrimination.
In the lawsuit filed in 2016, the plaintiffs said that the Phoenix Immigration Department failed to consider their race when determining their qualifications for jobs, including for attorneys.
The lawsuit said that Phoenix’s attorneys refused to hire the women for their race.
The women’s attorney said in the lawsuit that Phoenix attorneys were also reluctant to hire her clients because they had an African American client.
In a lawsuit filed earlier this year, the same plaintiffs said Phoenix immigration officers routinely denied them interviews because they were Hispanic.
The attorneys said that this policy was part of a pattern of discrimination against Hispanics.
The attorneys in both cases have argued that their clients were not discriminated against because they are Latino.
In that lawsuit, the Arizona Civil Rights Commission found that Phoenix Immigration did not discriminate against the plaintiffs because they’re Latino.
Vazquez said he hopes the lawsuit will prompt Phoenix Immigration to reconsider its policies, and said the agency should pay the women $3.5 million in damages.
“The Phoenix Immigration employees are entitled to the full amount of damages and punitive damages,” he said.
“This case shows that Phoenix immigration employees can be discriminated against.”
