Racist Canadian Boss Harasses Puerto Rican Employees, Gets Deported

This racist and blatantly ignorant boss is as dumb and toxic as they come. She consistently berated her hard working staff, and threw around verbal jabs about them being "illegals" while they were in fact from Puerto Rico, which is a U.S. States territory. As it turns out, Jan was the illegal alien of the whole bunch. Apparently she's from Canada and her green card expired. So, she ends up getting deported when it's all said and done. If anything, we feel bad for Canada having to welcome Jan back.
