Warren Fights for Back Wages for Illegals [OPINION]
Sen. Liz Warren (D-Massachusetts), who was caught in yet another lie by claiming recently that she was fired from a teaching job in 1971 because she was visibly pregnant, is floating another whacko campaign plank.
Warren is promising to fight for illegal aliens who say they were gypped out of back pay by employers who hired them illegally.
Our beleaguered fishermen who toil at sea under often extreme conditions cannot even get Warren to come to town to fight for them against their government which is making their miserable jobs even more miserable, but she's an avid fighter for illegals. Gotta make sure they're not screwed over.
Breitbart writes of Warren's plan: "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."
Breitbart says Warren's plan fails to "mandate punishment for employers and businesses who hire illegal aliens over American citizens." Nor does it do anything to discourage illegal immigrants from coming here to steal your jobs. As a matter of fact, another Warren proposal would decriminalize illegal border crossings, which would encourage illegals to come here for work and taxpayer-funded benefits.
Elizabeth Warren and her band of merry socialists are exactly what is wrong with America right now. The fact that this woman is also a chronic liar is disturbing and is all the evidence you need that she should be kept as far away from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as possible.
