Not for children to molest, but for work. Despite hundreds of attorneys in the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division (DOJ CRD), the racist and Mexican revanchist Thomas Perez, can't find enough work. Apparently there aren't enough Muslim terrorists, Mexican contrabandistas, or Bernie Madoff wannabees to go around at DOJ, so schoolyard taunts are now priority numero uno.

It was just another schoolyard basketball game until a group of Hispanic seventh-graders defeated a group of boys from Alabama.
The reaction was immediate, according to the Mexican mother of one of the winners, and rooted in the state's new law on illegal immigration.
"They told them, 'You shouldn't be winning. You should go back to Mexico,'" said the woman, who spoke through a translator last week and didn't want her name used. She and her son are in the country illegally.
Spanish-speaking parents say their children are facing more bullying and taunts at school since Alabama's tough crackdown on illegal immigration took effect last month. Many blame the name-calling on fallout from the law, which has been widely covered in the news, discussed in some classrooms and debated around dinner tables.
And lo and behold, the DOJ CRD swings into action, opens up one eager eye focused on the hapless redneck seventh graders:
Justice Department officials are monitoring for bullying incidents linked to the law.
"We're hearing a number of reports about increases in bullying that we're studying," the head of the agency's civil rights division, Thomas Perez, said during a stop in Birmingham.
The Justice Department has established a bilingual telephone hotline and special email account for residents to report any violence or threats based on racial or ethnic background that could be linked to the law. Officials would not provide a breakdown on the types of complaints being received.
And as Main Justice goes, so does the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Alabama which also has no real crime to deal with:
U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance, the lead federal prosecutor for north Alabama, said many Hispanic parents may be afraid to report bullying for fear of coming in contact with government officials. Under the law, authorities are supposed to detain suspected illegal immigrants found living in the state and hold them for federal immigration authorities.
Don't worry, nothing better to do in northern Alabama. No crime here, move along, nothing to see. Especially since principals and the State of Alabama have no reports of criminally prosecutable "bullying," teasing, or other schoolyard hijinks.
“Yet the Alabama Department of Education hasn't received any reports of bullying linked to the law, said spokeswoman Malissa Valdes, and it isn't tracking the issue to determine whether there could be a problem. Any parents who call the state with complaints would be referred to their child's principal, she said...
Charles Warren is school superintendent DeKalb County, where about 18 percent of the 8,900 students enrolled in public schools are Hispanic. He doesn't see much tension between Hispanic students and others — Crossville High School has had a Hispanic homecoming queen the last two years, he said.
"The kids get along great, it's the adults who are the problem," Warren said. "There are a lot of similarities to what went on back in the '50s and '60s with the civil rights movement. A lot of people are out of work now and they want to blame someone. I think the Hispanic people are catching a lot of that."
There we have it, no problem, no Federal crime, no nothing, except protecting illegal aliens from arrest and deportation.
