    Default New York Teamsters Support Immigrants, Oppose Trump Immigration Orders

    George Miranda, President of Teamsters Joint Council 16 and the Teamsters National Hispanic Caucus, had the following statement in response to President Trumpís immigration executive orders. Teamsters Joint Council 16 represents 120,000 members across Downstate New York and Puerto Rico.

    ďOur members, many of whom are immigrants, are scared today, but they are standing strong. President Trumpís immigration orders, including banning immigrants from several Muslim countries, closing our doors to refugees fleeing persecution, increasing deportations that tear apart families, and building a needless wall, do not represent the values that make America great.

    ďNew York Teamsters come from just about every country. We do the jobs that run America, from trucking and airlines, to sanitation and government. When I look at my members, I know that immigration makes us stronger, not weaker.

    ďAt our best, labor unions bring workers of all races together to fight for a better future for everyone. Union workers learn that the threat is not the immigrant working next to you, but the company exploiting both of you. Where labor unions are absent, as they increasingly are in this country, bigotry festers.

    Teamsters Joint Council 7 Stands Up For Immigrant Workers

    SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the wake of the Trump administration's executive orders on immigration, Teamsters Joint Council 7 reaffirmed its commitment to protecting immigrant workers.

    "Teamster food processing jobs have been the path to the middle class for several generations of Latino workers in California's Central and Salinas Valleys," said Rome Aloise, President of Teamsters Joint Council 7. "Our recent organizing efforts with rideshare drivers, port truckers, and more, have brought workers of every national origin, religion and race into the labor movement. The Teamsters will fight any attempts to split up families or exploit workers around their immigration status."

    Last Wednesday, President Trump signed executive orders directing money toward building a wall on the United States/Mexico border and to increase immigration enforcement. On Friday, these orders were followed by an order temporarily banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

    Following the inauguration, Teamsters throughout Northern California joined marches against the new administration's agenda.

    I don't know what the answer is. Growing up in Southern, CA I saw over the years how the Mexican immigrants flooded into the state. I worked with many such people. Yes, we are a country of immigrants but I think we need reform. There has to be a way that people can go where they need to go to make a better life. Reform so they aren't all coming in illegally. Reform so that the government knows they are here, just like the government knows we are here, and they can be tax paying citizens. All I know is that what Trump is doing is so wrong and not the way to go about it. And if he reads that Christian bible of his, he might realize, maybe anyway, just how wrong he is.

    Good Grief.
    Didn't anybody see that Obama did these band NINETEEN times.
    And Bill Clinton did it TWELVE times.
    WTF!!!!
    Hillary had something to do with a 6 month ban on Iraq...a MUSLIM.nation.

    This is nonsense and it makes us look.dumb.
    $20 trillion in national debt= WE ARE BROKE.
    We can't help.others if we can't help.our own....and we can't.

    I think alot of legal immigrants are looking out for friends/ family members who are here illegally ....and it's wrong.
    Laws are broken by being here illegally.
    Workers are.mistreated by being here illegally.
    Their presence is scabbish.
    If they don't do it the tight way

    AAnd when laws are broken.....families get seperated. People go to jail. There's walls seperating families...right here in America.
    So I can't have sympathy. Plenty of families are seperated. More now are incarcerated than ever.
    This is not America of the 50's through 80's....This is America with many jobless and a debt that's gonna explode.

    If all these poor ILLEGAL Immigrants would have came here legally we wouldn't be having this conversation.This country can't support the people that are here legally ,maybe all the citizens that want these illegals here should take them in your household, feed ,clothe and take care of them as their own,problem solved.
