All people, no matter their place of birth, have the right to work free from fear. The American Enterprise Institute warns that reducing immigration to the United States over the coming decade will starve the economy of workers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states, immigrants both documented and undocumented made up 16.9 percent of the U.S. workforce in 2016. On average, immigrant workers are younger than native-born workers, and they have a higher labor force participation rate. The US government collects billions of tax dollars annually on unclaimed social security numbers. These are just a few statistics, which lead to The ILGWU supporting policies to create pathways to permanent residency for all workers who have labored in the US workforce for at least one year.
