CWA: Obama Administration Offers Path to Opportunity for 800,000 Young ‘Dreamers’

Following is a statement by CWA President Larry Cohen:

"All of us in the Communications Workers of America applaud today’s White House action. Providing rights and a path to opportunity for these Dreamers inspires all of us, and reminds us that the United States always has been a nation of immigrants determined to build better lives for themselves, their families and their community.

Restoring the American dream for working people in this nation is the critical problem of the day.  Now, for 800,000 of our young Dreamers, horror has turned to excitement, despair to promise. 

We will continue to work for the dreams and aspirations of all working Americans. Regardless of our birth place, we share common goals.  We applaud President Obama and his team for this huge step forward.  It makes us more determined to keep pushing forward and to never give up.”
