NYC CLC President Alvarez on the SCOTUS Ruling on DAPA/DACA

For Immediate Release: 

"The Supreme Court’s ruling is a sobering reminder of the importance of fighting for the rights of all working men and women, regardless of race, ethnicity, or country of origin,” said Vincent Alvarez, President of the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO.  “New York City’s labor movement is among the most diverse in the world, and we are committed to helping to ensure that every worker has the  tools necessary to live with dignity, raise a healthy family, and have a voice at work.  Despite today's ruling, we will continue to ensure that immigrants no longer have to work under the shadow of fear that has plagued neighborhoods and worksites for far too long."
