32BJ SEIU Responds to Trump’s Travel Ban 3.0

The following statement can be attributed to Héctor Figueroa, President of 32BJ SEIU:

“Trump’s travel ban 3.0 is another attempt to discriminate based on skin color and religion. Trump’s addition of non-Muslim countries is a thinly-veiled attempt to distract from the original malicious purpose of the ban.

“This latest version has nothing to do with vetting process of the country of origin and everything to do with restricting non-white immigration to the U.S. If President Trump were truly concerned with defending Americans from terrorism, his Department of Homeland Security would not have defunded the fight against white supremacist terrorism which kills far more Americans each year.”

La 32BJ SEIU responde a la 3ª versión de la restricción de inmigrantes de Trump

“La 3ª versión de la restricción de viajeros de Trump es otro intento de discriminar en base al color de la piel y la religión. El que Trump haya añadido países no musulmanes a la lista es un mal velado intento de distraer al público respecto al propósito deleznable de la orden original.

“Esta última versión no tiene nada que ver con el proceso de escrutinio del país de origen de las personas y más bien tiene que ver con restringir la inmigración no blanca a los E.E.U.U. Si el Presidente Trump estuviese seriamente preocupado por defender a los americanos del terrorismo, DHS no hubiera eliminado recursos para la lucha contra los terroristas que favorecen la supremacía blanca, la cual mata cada vez más americanos anualmente.”

With 163,000 members in eleven states and Washington, D.C., 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country and one of the largest unions representing immigrant workers in the country.
