The policy statement, which can be found at http://www.aflcio.org/Issues/Immigration/AFL-CIO-Recommendations-on-Administrative-Action-on-Immigration not only offers recommendations but provides the legal foundation for our continuing call to push the Administration to take broad executive action to relieve the ongoing deportation crisis for millions of workers.
