32BJ STATEMENT ON EXTENSION OF TPS FOR EL SALVADOR, HAITI, NICARAGUA AND SUDAN

The following statement may be attributed to Hector Figueroa, President of 32BJ

“While we certainly welcome the extension of TPS until January 2020, this minor victory was only won because immigrants and advocates stood up to prevent this Trump administration’s utterly immoral and irrational attempt to turn hundreds of thousands of legal, productive residents into fodder for deportation. We continue to support efforts in Congress to pass the DREAM and Promise Act of 2019, to offer these TPS recipients and Dreamers the permanent status they have long deserved.”

With nearly 170,000 members in eleven states and Washington, D.C., 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country
