Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama’s nominee to be attorney general, told the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday in her confirmation hearing that illegal aliens have “the right” to work in the United States.
Lynch, who is currently the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, also declined to directly answer the question of whether as attorney general she would take action against an employer who discriminated in favor of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents by hiring them in preference to illegal aliens.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) asked Lynch “who has more right to a job in this country,” citizens and legal permanent residents or illegal aliens?
“I believe that the right and the obligation to work is one that’s shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here,” Lynch responded.
