Undocumented Aliens and International Law
I wonder if there has been any action filed by or on behalf of undocumented aliens under the Alien Tort statute. There have been quite a few actions under the ATS for human rights violations, usually involving torture etc. But, if illegal aliens are held in sem-servitude and/or or paid unlawfully law wages, and IF the US has ratified the appropriate ILO Convention, the latter is a source of international law. Wouldn't that allow such an illegal alien to bring an action under the ALS, imstead of just the FLSA for example? TU, what do you think?
