AFT's Weingarten denounces anti-executive action legislation
from American Federation of Teachers
On behalf of the 1.6 million members of the American Federation of Teachers, I urge you to oppose the Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act (H.R. 5759). The bill, sponsored by Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., would prevent the implementation of President Barack Obama's Nov. 20 executive action on immigration. The executive action would provide protection to millions of aspiring Americans, keep families together and expand our economy. It is a measure that should be supported by all Americans. Removing the protections granted in the action would subject nearly 5 million immigrants and their families to the fear of separation and deportation.
