WHAT WE KNOW:
Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) are teaming up to introduce legislation that will boost Americans’ wages while punishing employers for illegal hiring.
- While Democrats are trying to find a way to get a $15 wage floor, Romney says his bill will “ensure businesses cannot hire illegal immigrants.”
Millions of Americans are struggling to make ends meet. I’m introducing a bill w/ @SenatorRomney to give them a raise by increasing the minimum wage and ensuring businesses can't hire illegal immigrants – protecting American workers.
