From a call re: stopping govt shutdown with @ACLU, Sen. Udall, Rep. Espaillat and others from Sierra Club and the Service Employees International Union, a labor union for those in the healthcare/srvc industries etc.
Rocio Sáenz, SEIU's executive veep says:
"Immigrants represent hope and opportunity, we are a resource for progress, activity and prosperity and most Americans understand that and that is why I have hope we will not have a government shut-down and not fund a border wall."
"Trump’s divisive wall is not a victim-less crime. Thousands of our members live close to border walls and see how this is part of a greater militarization gripping the region where they live."
"[Trump] claimed the wall would be paid by people of Mexico. But any money congress has spent on building a wall or detention centers or toward deportation agents comes directly out of our members hard-earned paychecks through taxes they pay."
"Those dollars are desperately needed for schools children must attend, healthcare, childcare, home-care, and basic needs like clean water.
Immigrant numbers have been declining since the year Obama was elected."
"We have been insulted, workplaces raided, families broken up. The welcome mat that is our nation’s heritage has been replaced by cages & tear gas. That must stop. If congress appropriates $ for a wall/agents, it is complicit in the cruel actions of this admin."
