<< I've gone to maybe a dozen interviews, and at almost
every one of them I've been asked either if I was Canadian, or if I was not
an American citizen, and what kind of visa I needed... I just found out,
however, that asking for my citizenship or otherwise inquiring into my
unamericanness is illegal>>

Jane, I've never *not* been asked for proof of ability to work, citizenship,
etc. Employers have consistently requested to view my Social Security Card,
birth certificate and/or passport, and driver's license. I'm a
third-generation American citizen, caucasian, without any conceivable sign
of non-American nationality (accent, etc.). Are you sure it's illegal?
