LIUNA Members, Leaders to Attend Senate Immigration Hearing, Monitor Progress of Reform Bill
The Senate Judiciary Committee is in the process of marking up the Gang of 8’s immigration reform bill, S. 744. This bill represents a major step forward in fixing our nation’s broken immigration system once and for all.
While the bill is far from perfect and should be strengthened to ensure that aspiring citizens and families are treated fairly and provided the same protections that all working people deserve, much can also be done to weaken the bill and make it harder for working families.
LIUNA members and leaders will be actively engaged throughout the legislative process and are ready to oppose anyone who attempts to strip legal status and citizenship provisions from the bill, expand guest worker programs, or tries to weaken or remove the vital labor protections currently included in the bill.

WHO: LIUNA leaders and members
WHERE: G-50 Dirksen Senate Office Building
