Craig alleges that the team violated U.S. Immigration laws by paying the four coaches, who were not legally eligible to work in the U.S., “through other means.” This happened after she refuses to add the coaches to the payroll.

She also alleges that Chivas hired four coaches from Mexico even though they were not authorized to work in the United States.

“Craig was told to add the coaches to the payroll but she refused, and team executives instead routed them money through other means.”

Vergara, Craig claims, began one of his staff meetings in Spanish and then said, in English, “If you didn’t understand what I just said, then it is time for you to get a job down the hall.” -Fox Latino

Chivas USA is the MLS offshoot club of the professional Mexican Soccer team base in Guadalajara, Mexico. The team is the only Mexican club that exclusively hires Mexican players.

Is there any doubt that the Chivas Soccer club would ‘not’ be discriminatory?
