Yesterday, President Donald Trump moved to take away work authorization from nearly 800,000 young immigrants and to terminate DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program put in place to protect immigrants who came to the United States as children.

The AFL-CIO opposes the move. “The labor movement will stand with these brave young workers and fight for legislation so the contributions they make are celebrated, not assaulted,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.
