Immigrant Workers’ Rights

Immigrant workers, like all workers, should be able to stand up for fair treatment without fear of being separated from their families. Immigration reform efforts should make protecting those rights a priority, regardless of any worker’s immigration status.

Exploiting immigrant labor is bad for business, bad for workers, bad for consumers and bad for the free market.

E-Verify will affect every working American in the country – regardless of immigration status. This will cause more than one million citizens and work authorized immigrants to contact a government agency or lose their jobs.
