UNITE HERE applauds the leadership in the Senate in creating a comprehensive and bipartisan framework for immigration reform. Crucially, the bill outlines a pathway to citizenship, protections for workers rights, and provisions to reunite immigrant families. For hundreds of thousands of our immigrant members and future members in our industries, such legislation would be transformative.
Immigrant workers play a vital role in our economy. Like all Americans, they want the opportunity to provide for themselves an their families. We are eager to take part in a dialogue about the legislation, so that immigrants can achieve citizenship and participate as full and members of our society.
