Working People Remain United Against Discrimination

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Supreme Court’s decision to review President Trump’s travel ban:

As the courts continue to review the constitutionality of President Trump’s travel and refugee ban, the labor movement reaffirms our resolve to ensure our workplaces and our society respect the dignity and rights of all working people, regardless of race, religion, immigration status or country of origin. Working people and their unions across the country have stood together in airports and in the streets to reject the administration’s efforts to criminalize our immigrant communities, discriminate against Muslim families, and turn our backs on those fleeing violence and persecution. We will continue to stand together against this unjust ban.
