Immigration Reform

In a joint statement from Maria Castaneda, Secretary-Treasurer, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East and Estela Vazquez, Executive Vice President, 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, they said, "Once again, right-wing Republicans and their judicial appointees are playing politics with the lives of hard working people. This delay in our fight for a more equitable immigration process is only temporary. However, we know that justice delayed is justice denied. This attempt to stall President Obama's executive actions is part of the Republican war on women because many immigrant women are the backbones, caretakers and bread winners of their families. As the largest healthcare union in the nation, representing over 400,000 nurses and caregivers, many of whom are immigrants, we vow to hold the elected officials who influenced Monday' decision responsible for their actions."
