The following statement can be attributed to Hector Figueroa President of 32BJ SEIU, one of the largest unions representing immigrant workers in the country:
Arresting a young DACA recipient with deep roots in our country is not only cruel and outrageous but an affront to our core principles and democratic values. Daniel Ramirez should be brought back where he belongs; with his family and his community in Seattle.
As a union with tens of thousands of immigrant members, protecting immigrant families from being ripped apart and defending the rights of all immigrants – regardless of race or religion – is one of our key duties. We all need to speak up and take action. FREE DANIEL NOW!
