“It doesn’t matter if you came in bondage as a slave into this country or you came generations ago as Eastern European to build cities like Chicago or New York. Or you were Chinese and built railroads in this country. Or a modern day immigrant who makes our beds and cleans the offices and builds our highways or the refugee engineers remapping the country. That’s who we are and that is the sense of this country and that is worth fighting for. That is worth really speaking up for."
Gebre is the Executive Vice President of the AFL-CIO
