Immigration Reform

1199SEIU is a rich tapestry of members from every corner of the globe. Our diversity enriches and strengthens our union. Originally founded largely by Eastern European immigrants, 1199 has always embraced and recognized the contributions of immigrants to our workplace and movement. Anti-immigrant bias is a tool of those who would profit by dividing the ranks of working people.

In the later half of the 20th century through the first years of this one, 1199 has worked closely with Haitian, Latino and Asian-Pacific Islander communities toward comprehensive immigration reform and to put an end to the scapegoating of immigrants, including those in the Muslim community.

We call for an end to mass deportations and have worked and marched beside our allies in favor of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA).
