Julia Solorzano Co-Authors Amicus Brief in Immigration Case

Former Fellow Julia Solorzano (’17), an attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center, commented in a Vice News article on the Supreme Court’s consideration of state law jurisdiction to prosecute immigrants for using inaccurate Social Security numbers (“States Want To Use Identity-Theft Laws To Go After Undocumented Immigrants,” Nov. 6). Discussing how the move would incentivize employers to commit wage theft, Julia said, “Immigrant workers ... are protected by workplace laws like minimum wage and overtime laws,” and tolerance of workplace abuse “drives down wages and working conditions for all workers in this country.”
