US Labor Department, Aids and abets illegal immigration

From The Detroit News June 23, 2010.

“Labor Dept. aids and abets crime of illegal immigration”

“Illegal immigrants in America have long flouted the law. And why not, since it’s seldom enforced.

Expect that to get worse now that the Obama administration is offering its assistance.

That’s right, specifically the Department of Labor. The nation’s top work force agency no longer is simply turning its head as hordes of people break the law and enter the United States each day, it now is offering a helping hand.

“Every worker in America has a right to be paid fairly whether documented or not (emphasis added), ” Labor Secretary Hilda Solis says in a public service announcement posted on the agency’s website. “So call us. It is free and confidential.”
 There it is, folks. Your tax dollars at work.

Solis is not imploring legal workers who are beaten or denied access to water or suffer some other abuse at the hands of an unscrupulous employer to call.

She’s telling illegal immigrants in America — criminals who have crossed the border without regard to our laws, often repeatedly — that if they don’t think they are being paid properly, they can get help from the federal government.

I’m not making this up. Go to the Department of Labor’s website ( and watch it for yourself.

Solis is joined in her call by actors Jimmy Smits, Esai Morales and Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers.

“You work hard and you have the right to be paid every cent of the money you earn,” Morales says in another video. “Our laws protect you whether you’re documented or not.””

“The Labor Department didn’t return calls to explain its position, and when I called the toll-free number that Solis said was “free and confidential” and told the nice woman who answered that I had questions about using tax dollars to produce these videos to help criminals get more money, she asked me a lot of questions about who I was and why I was calling.

Perhaps if I had said I was an illegal immigrant I would have gotten faster answers.”

  1. It’s Illegal for them to be here and in most cases illegal for employers to hire them. So how do they justify ignoring both crimes to guarantee that poor little Juan the innocent get’s his minimum wage?

    She said call. Lets!

  2. One from column A and two from column B. Since this regime no longer abides by the Constitution or any other laws–it is pick and choose whatever law is most politically beneficial to the government’s own self interest.

    On the other hand–just let we the people disagree with the current regime and see how quickly our free speech is removed and we are labeled domestic terrorists. As they are now in thhe process of doing.

    The dictatorship is just warming up. We will always be guilty of something they invent in order to control us totally. It we don’t get this criminal out this year, it will be many years–if ever we will ever again know freedom.

  3. I agree,

    In fact, we don’t pay legal US citizen criminals behind bars minimum wage level. Why the hell should we pay a non-US citizen criminal minimum wages?

  4. Staggering droop in home sales.

  5. Videos are unbelievable! Thanks for ferreting out this info, CW.

    Back in the 1980’s I remember my clients receiving special notices from U.S. government warning them to DOCUMENT every new employee by filling out a special form to submit to Labor Dept.

    That requirement fell by the wayside after a couple of years, and it’s been a slippery slope downward ever since. BHO’s administration has taken all of it to a new level. Now we have reached the point where the undocumented are being encouraged to seek fair wages.

    This development imo is one of the most serious facing our nation, because if BHO wins this battle our country will forever cease to be free. He and his adherents will have the votes to remain perpetually in power.

  6. This is interesting reading as we wait for the outcome of oboner’s meeting with McChrystal.

    “The newly unearthed diaries of a colourful assassin for the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the CIA, reveal that American spy chiefs wanted Patton dead because he was threatening to expose allied collusion with the Russians that cost American lives. . .”

  7. If you really want to draw a parallel, venture down this rabbit hole.

    Eisenhower not a NBC either?

  8. Prairie,

    I am confident that many Countries wanted Patton dead, as well as countless attempts on his life.
    He was indeed a thorn in Eisenhowers side and I am quite sure he wished some of those attempts would have become fruitfull.
