Minnesota’s top elected officials say they’ll enforce Minnesota’s new law against wage theft even for workers who are not in the country legally. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison says:
“You are not entitled to steal people’s wages based on their immigration status or lack thereof. We will enforce that law.”
Governor Tim Walz echoes the state will not put people at risk or dehumanize anyone due to their immigration status. Top Republican leaders aren’t immediately available to comment.
