The Road To Citzenship

On Aug. 14, Local 1700 members packed into a van provided by Greyhound and joined 200 carloads of working families for a caravan to Bakersfield, California, organized by the L.A. County Federation of Labor.

The rally outside the office of Congressman Kevin McCarthy – the #3 Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives – was one of hundreds organized by the AFL-CIO across the country in support of a comprehensive immigration policy that includes a road map to citizenship.
