Elizabeth Warrens Workers Plan Will Provide Back Pay to Illegal Aliens

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a leading 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate, is vowing to “fight” for back pay for illegal aliens.

As part of Warren’s “Empowering American Workers and Raising Wages” plan, illegal aliens who have worked illegally in the United States — sometimes by stealing Americans’ identities and Social Security numbers — would become eligible to receive back pay for their previous work by amending the National Labor Relations Act.

Ensuring employers can’t exploit undocumented workers and drive down standards for all workers: The 2002 Supreme Court case Hoffman Plastic Compounds v. NLRB held that an undocumented worker could not receive the backpay he was owed from an employer who had violated the NLRA. That 5–4 ruling is wrong and denies millions of undocumented workers redress for illegal firings or other retaliatory conduct by an employer. The case encourages employers to hire undocumented immigrants and exploit them in numerous fields, including construction and manufacturing, which could lower wages for all workers. I will fight to amend the NLRA to end this form of exploitation and ensure that all workers are protected.

1. I actually approve of that idea and have made similar proposals in the past.

Once passed, such a law would make employing illegals so expensive with so many civil liabilities, the employers will kick them to the curb.

The demand for illegal labor will crash.

3. Better to fine the employers than give illegals a windfall

4. Just give the employers 6 to 9 months from date of enactment to fire their illegals.

After that, any illegal still in their employment can sue.

The illegals will be leaving so fast we'll have to tear down the wall to let them back out.
