The ACLU, AFL-CIO and other groups have filed a petition accusing the United States, New Jersey and several other state governments of human rights violations by refusing to grant equal rights to illegal immigrant workers.
Lawyers for the groups argue that once workers are on the job, they should enjoy the same protections as other employees, regardless of their immigration status. Other states named in the petition include New York, Kansas, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
The advocates filed the petition with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, which has considerable political influence but no enforcement powers. If the petition is deemed admissible, it will go to the State Department for a response.
Note: The petition is just another part of the aggressive drive by labor unions to push for more rights for all workers, including illegal immigrants.
