Union Members Defend Working People Targeted by Trump’s Aggressive Immigration Raids

February 15, 2017 Monika Greenhow

From hotel workers to farm workers, from teachers to taxi drivers, airport, construction and retail workers, union members and leaders have been out in the streets in Los Angeles; Phoenix; Austin, Texas; New York City; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and many points in between over the past week. Why?  We are defending our neighbors, co-workers and friends who are being swept up in a series of immigration raids. Working people understand in our bones that when the government terrorizes our fellow workers and their families, we all lose. When we allow ourselves to be divided, we are weak, when we are weak, standards erode for all of us.
