Americans know that our strength has always been built on the simple notion that America is a place where many become one. The AFT, as the representative of those who teach and care for our next generation, is working to open the path to opportunity and the American dream for the next generation of immigrants and citizens. The time for commonsense, comprehensive and compassionate immigration reform is long overdue. —Randi Weingarten
