Trumka: Senate Judiciary Committee Immigration Bill an 'Enormous Step' Toward Healing an Injustice


AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka released the following statement in response to the Senate Judiciary Committee's immigration bill:

Today brings to mind Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s wise and hopeful words, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

More than 11 million aspiring Americans took a big step toward becoming citizens today with the bipartisan Senate Judiciary Committee vote. That reflects an enormous step toward healing an injustice, the deportation crisis that has wrecked families, communities and workplaces for far too long.
