Immigrants Belong in Unions

America’s labor movement is a natural home for new immigrants who wish to work hard for economic security and social justice.

The AFL-CIO is united in a powerful movement to build an immigration system that represents the needs and interests of all working people.

We can stop the race to the bottom in wages and standards by standing together, all of us, regardless of what we look like, who we love, how we worship or where we were born.

Every person who needs a paycheck to live suffers when millions of people who are American in every way but on paper live and work in fear of arrest and deportation.

Real immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship is a critical piece of our working family agenda to raise pay, lift labor standards and empower workers.
