Big Sis Janet Napolitano is hit with another lawsuit again. This time, the Department of Homeland Security chief is being sued by Sunil Walia, an Indian-born Sikh, who works as an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, alleging he was removed from his post interviewing suspicious travelers at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City after he filed a series of employment-discrimination lawsuit.

Sunil Walia alleges he was denied a shot at a job with the elite Joint Terrorism Task Force earlier this year because he was reassigned in 2010 to a downtown Manhattan officer, where his job entails “administrative immigration matters.” Walia needed to have two or more years in their current assignment to be eligible for the elite post. Sunil Walia’s lawsuit was filed in Brooklyn federal court and seeks $2.5 million in damages for alleged discrimination and retaliation.
