Irish undocumented welcome immigration move


John Sweeney, the son of Irish immigrants and President of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL/CIO) and Joe Hansen, president of Change to Win said on Monday that they supported a bill that allowed undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. a path of citizenship. Although opposing a large addition of temporary working programs, they said they would support some kind of worker program.

 “The labor movement will work together to make sure that the White House as well as Congress understand that we speak about immigration reform with one voice,” Sweeney said in a statement to The New York Times.
