Past and present, immigrants have been at the center of UNITE HERE’s work to end poverty and change lives. We can build even greater power when our members choose to become U.S. citizens and participate fully in American political life.
That’s why UNITE HERE helped 5,180 people in more than a dozen cities complete the process of becoming U.S. citizens in 2016. The flagship of our citizenship programs is run by UNITE HERE’s Culinary Union, which helped over 1,700 Nevada immigrants apply for citizenship.
UNITE HERE members will continue to defend the rights of all workers while carrying the torch for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
