After hearing the ruling on the United States v. Texas, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the following remarks:

Today's Supreme Court ruling is a setback for all those who have fought for more humane and rational enforcement of our nation's immigration laws. While we are deeply disappointed by the court's failure to reach a decision, we will redouble our organizing efforts to defeat the obstructionist, anti-immigrant forces behind this lawsuit and ensure that all working people can assert their rights on the job and in the community without fear of deportation.
