Labor Dept. Confirms: It Will Enforce Federal Wage Laws on Behalf of Illegal Workers

What part of illegal does our government not understand?
CNS News: The U.S. Department of Labor told CNSNews.com in a written statement on Wednesday that it will enforce the federal wage laws on behalf of anyone working in the United States “regardless of their immigration status.” The statement was in response to a written question from CNSNews.com.
The written statement backed up a video statement that Labor Secretary Hilda Solis made to CNSNews.com on Monday in which she indicated that “partnership” agreements she had signed that day with a group of Latin American countries will obligate the U.S. government to protect the working conditions for both “documented and undocumented” migrant laborers here in the United States.
The Labor Department’s determination to make U.S. employers treat illegal aliens taking jobs in the United States as if they were U.S citizens or legal immigrants seems to contradict the Immigration and Nationality Act. That act says “employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the United States (i.e., citizens and nationals of the U.S.) and aliens authorized to work in the U.S.” and that the U.S. government “protects U.S. citizens and aliens authorized to accept employment in the U.S. from discrimination in hiring or discharge on the basis of national origin and citizenship status.”

CNS sent a question that was: “Will the Department of Labor enforce existing law under the Immigration and Nationality Act that says ‘employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the United States (i.e. citizens and nationals of the U.S.) and aliens authorized to work in the U.S.?’”
A Department of Labor official responded: “The WHD [Wage and Hour Division] administers and enforces the law for all workers employed in the United States, regardless of their immigration status.”
During the signing ceremony, Solis said, “No matter how you got here or how long you plan to stay, you have certain rights. You have the right to be safe and in a healthy workplace and the right to a legal wage. We gather here today to strengthen our shared commitment to protect the labor rights of migrant workers in the United States. Unfortunately, due to language barriers and immigration status, migrant workers can be those that are most vulnerably abused.”
Glad to know they are working hard to not enforce our laws.  What a slap in the face to those that did obtain US citizenship the legal way.
Our Founding Fathers are again rolling in their graves.

  1. Not going to work. If they know what is best they will go back where they came from.

     
  2. We are no longer a country of laws.The government picks the law they approve of, not the ones that have been passed.

     
  3. Once again the question must be asked:
    Where are the republicans?
    They should be screaming from the rooftops over this illegal act on the part of this fraudulent POTUS.
    All I hear is crickets.
