respect to the untimeliness of Complainant’s Complaint, and Respondent is entitled to decision as a matter of law on this ground as well. See Aguirre supra, at 640, *7 (internal citations omitted).
Because Complainant was not a “protected individual” under 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(1)(B) at the time the alleged discriminatory acts occurred, Complainant was ineligible for the disputed position under 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(2)(C), and Complainant’s Complaint is barred by the statute of limitations at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(d)(2), Respondent’s Motion to Dismiss is GRANTED.
