It troubles me that child migrant labor abuse is still rampant despite the exposure of this nationwide problem by The New York Times in the Fall of 2023.

H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act, includes E-Verify and loophole closures on migrant child releases to end this abuse.

I hope you contact me soon to discuss ending migrant child abuse by sending H.R. 2 to the President’s desk.

Here are some results of child labor investigations from the Department of Labor.:

  • Recently, in Alabama, a restaurant chain called Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers was caught exploiting 149 children over 7 different locations and was fined a mere $119K. How long will it take the 7 locations to recoup that fine?

  • Monogram Meat Snacks (founders of the Monogram Foods Loves Kid Foundation) was fined $140K for placing children in dangerous work environments in violation of the law. Compare that fine with Monogram celebrating surpassing $1 billion in revenue in 2021. I am sure that fine really hurts.

  • A Baskin-Robbins Franchisee was fined $49,833 for employing 64 kids over 8 locations.

  • A Jersey Mike’s Franchise owner was fined $108K for employing over a dozen children in four locations.

  • Owner of 20 Burgers, Shakes and Fries was fined $11K for employing 13 children.

  • The largest Bojangles franchisee was fined $27K for a second round of child labor violations.

P.S. Secure our borders. Stop the influx of immigrants and refugees. Implement the Congressionally-mandated biometric entry/exit system. Evict those here illegally. End chain migration. End birthright citizenship. End the visa lottery. End amnesty. End asylum. End catch-and-release. Make E-Verify mandatory. And more! Illegal immigration is a weapon of mass destruction!
