AFL-CIO Submits Amicus Brief in Support of Immigrant Working Families

March 9, 2016 Monika Greenhow

The brief explains the weak legal rationale relied upon by Texas and the other plaintiff states in claiming the right to challenge federal immigration policy in this case, a challenge that has, unfortunately, obstructed much-needed protections for long-standing members of our communities for more than a year.
