Trump's Crackdown on Illegal Immigration Worries Businesses
In the article, "Trump's Crackdown on Illegal Immigration Worries Businesses," featured in the Washington Examiner, attorney Kim Thompson weighs-in on President-elect Trump's promise of vastly stepped-up immigration enforcement and how employers might adjust.
Kim Thompson, a lawyer who advises employers on immigration matters for the firm Fisher Phillips, notes that large employers will be able to adjust. The ones that will be hurt are smaller employers who use unskilled labor.
Another unresolved question, Thompson notes, is whether the E-Verify requirement would be made retroactive. “How will it be put into effect? Is it only going to be for future hires, or will it require employers to go back and check their existing workers? I think that is scaring a lot of people,” she said.
