John J. Sweeney, President of the American Federation of Labor “Letter to the National and International Union Presidents.” AFL CIO. June 1st, 2005: “We are strongly supportive of the concept of legalization, recognizing that raising the floor for undocumented workers and bringing them out of the shadows will improve working conditions for all workers.
