Sacramento, CA – The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California released the following statement from David Huerta, President, SEIU-USWW, on President Trump’s immigration proposal:
“Trump’s racist immigration bill betrays the values of inclusion and opportunity have made our nation an economic powerhouse and a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world.
“Trump’s portrayal of immigrants as a drain on our nation is un-American, uninformed, and offensive. When Trump aims to push 10 million hard-working people into the shadows, he tarnishes the very American Dream of building a better life for our families.
“Immigrant communities and our allies will not allow Trump to shirk his responsibility to the REAL, comprehensive, immigration reform our communities and our economy demand. Our political power grows every time Trump speaks or tweets more hate.”
