The AFL-CIO has submitted an amicus brief in the U.S. v. Texas case, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to lift the injunction that is blocking several million hardworking immigrants from gaining a measure of increased dignity in their lives and security on the job. The brief explains the weak legal rationale relied upon by Texas and the other plaintiff states in claiming the right to challenge federal immigration policy in this case, a challenge that has, unfortunately, obstructed much-needed protections for long-standing members of our communities for more than a year.
