I am praying that Elizabeth Warren gets the Democratic nomination for president.

She may vote locked up but I am certain Americans won’t want to pay for all the goodies Warren wants to give them at taxpayer expense. Unlike the Democratic debates, when she gets on the stage with Trump, she will have to justify all of this. She will also have to say where the money for all of this is coming from.

She now wants illegal aliens to get back pay, which would likely throw many illegal aliens onto the public dole because the only advantage of hiring illegal aliens, lower pay would disappear. She opposes E-Verify and wants amnesty for up to 22 million illegals.

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.

Warren writes:

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. [Emphasis added]

Despite her platform of populist economic patriotism, Warren has committed to driving up foreign competition against America’s working and middle class in the U.S. labor market by providing amnesty for 11 to 22 million illegal aliens, increasing current legal immigration levels, and decriminalizing illegal immigration.
