What Time is It ?

We just won a new union contract, with good raises and improved benefits for close to 6000 workers and their families.  We know how much hard work it took: long hours, phone calls, marching in the streets.  Now we have the chance to win something that could help millions more working families.  Americans know immigration is good for our country, but the current system just isn’t working. 

I am from Somali. I came here to the United States to leave behind the war and start a new life and raise my children with a better future in the United States. For 21 years my sister, who is still in Kalkayo, Somalia, has tried to join our family here, but she cant get a visa.  That’s why I am supporting Immigration reform, to re-unite families.

I have 14 years in the US, I am a single mother, and I have personally felt the pain of our broken laws.  I was fired when the government did an audit of the company where I worked as a janitor, and living in the shadows I was also a victim of domestic violence.  I have legal documents now, but I support common sense reforms because most who have had experiences like me do not

There are many reasons I support immigration reform right now because It helps keep families together. It stabilizes our communities. It also helps our economy grow in the long-run.

I support Immigration reform because I’m affected when I see my co-workers hurt from this. They’re affected by not having their loved ones here in USA with them. I stand beside them in the fight to legalize citizenship into this country & I have texted my Congressman to change laws to end this devastation that affected us all. There is nothing human about facing deportation !!

I was a member of the union, making almost $13 per hour when the government audited the company where I worked and I was fired.  Now I work cleaning offices  again for a non-union company that pays only $8.50 per hour, with no benefits.  I feel exploited and without rights at work.  Our broken immigration laws hurt all workers, and the companies are the ones who benefit.
