1. Any other professional environment, anyone saying this would be fired.

There would not be any debate or hesitation. The minute HR or the lawyers heard about this, they'd start the ball rolling.

Immigrants' Employment Rights Under Federal Anti-Discrimination Laws

Harassment Based on National Origin

Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities. Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, "Go back to where you came from, " whether made by supervisors or by co-workers.
