The word union means we are all together. No one is out there on a limb by himself.

Divisive ICE Raids Are Not the Solution to Our Immigration System

Posted 2/10/17 | Filed in , ,

The following statement can be attributed to Hector Figueroa President of 32BJ SEIU, one of the largest unions representing immigrant workers in the country:

“As a labor union representing thousands of immigrant workers, we are greatly disturbed by the recent raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on hundreds of hardworking immigrants in 6 states. We condemn these counterproductive actions, which disrupt lives, tear apart families and wrongly punish hard-working people, while forcing all immigrants – documented or not – to live in constant fear. Instead of these harsh tactics, the government should focus on fixing our broken immigration system. We must bring our immigration system into line with our economic interests and humanitarian values, we will continue to fight for commonsense immigration reform to protect all workers, secure our borders and reunite families.”
