As the union of hospitality workers, immigrants are the backbone of our membership.
Past and present, immigrant workers have been at the center of our Union’s efforts to end poverty and change lives—from over 100 years ago, when our immigrant founders led the historic Bread and Roses strike, to today, when our immigrant members lead campaigns taking on some of the world’s most powerful billionaires and corporations.
UNITE HERE aims to work alongside President Biden and Vice President Harris to pass immigration reform to ensure that families stay together and live with dignity.
“UNITE HERE members hail from nearly 200 countries in all corners of the planet. Immigrants work hard, pay taxes, own homes, raise U.S. citizen children, and are essential to the cultural and economic prosperity of our communities.
“They deserve a pathway to citizenship and strengthened labor protections. Workers have advocated for decades both in their workplaces and their communities to secure these protections. UNITE HERE will not stop until all workers—DREAMERS, TPS holders, and all noncitizens—have an opportunity to achieve the rights of U.S. citizenship and the freedom to join unions.”
