Why am I getting denied for a job after meeting qualifications and requirements?

Good morning, my name is Kelvia Guardado. I am a 23 year old Hispanic woman, I am a former employee from the GEO group here in Del Rio, TX. I worked up to May 16, 2019 and had my baby on May 17, 2019. I went back to work June 17, 2019 after having my maternity leave; however, overtime in our local detention center is a lot, and working 16 hours a day several times a week made it difficult and uncomfortable for me since I was breastfeeding at the time, it got to the point where I was just physically hurting. 


I did a no call no show sometime in August and when I spoke to HR they gave me the option to voluntarily resign so I could be rehireable. I opted for that option and resigned from my position August 19, 2019. Once things got smoother with my newborn, I applied again on September, not even getting an interview. I applied once again on November and I went in person to speak with local HR. I took a printed resume and asked if I was even rehireable, they checked on the records and told me I was; however, there was not gonna be a class starting until late January, and since everything was in order there shouldn't be a problem with me going back. I asked to speak with the Warden from the facility but got told he was busy. 


Two weeks later I called to see how things were going and got told by HR that Warden did not want me back. I would call up to three times a week asking to speak to Warden to get a reason on why I can't get my job back and I have been unable to speak to him due to his busy schedule. 


I spoke to Regional GEO HR and they got a hold of HR here and I got told that I was rehireable but I can't go back. (Again no explanation given). 


I am qualified for the position and I meet all the requirements. Including holding a valid TCOLE license which is something 40% of the former employees get terminated for. 


I think is unfair that a black person and a white person get to be working for the facility once again after being terminated for breaking company policies; yet, someone that resigned can't go back. I don't know if race or ethnicity have anything to do with their decision, but that's how it looks when that's one of the differences we hold. 


I appreciate the time you take to read me  and hoping to hear from you soon. 


Best regards, 

Kelvia A. Guardado.
