As the new administration begins, immigrant workers around the country are fearful that President Donald Trump will follow through with his campaign pledges to deport millions of members of our unions and our communities and that he also will strip away basic protections for immigrants who were brought to our country as children. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has allowed hundreds of thousands of aspiring Americans and union members to live and work without fear in the United States. In light of Congress’ failure to create a pathway to citizenship for millions of hardworking immigrants, the labor movement strongly supports this deferred action program and has called for it to be expanded so that all working people will have the status to assert their rights on the job and stand up together to prevent abuse and exploitation.
