New York Teamsters Stand with Immigrants

Defend Immigrant Workers

Our country is strongest and our union is strongest when everyone is welcome. Teamsters Joint Council 16 supports reforms at the local, state, and national level that make it easier for immigrant families to live, work, and fully participate in our society.

We support New York City’s municipal ID card program and legislation before the State Legislature to make college affordable for immigrant students and and to make driver’s licenses available to all New Yorkers. We support comprehensive immigration reform and know that President Trump’s immigration policies run counter to values that make America great.
