Washington, DC--Today the nation's pioneering consumer and worker advocacy organization praised the Senate for its vote on landmark immigration reform legislation (S.744). The following statement can be attributed to National Consumers League Executive Director Sally Greenberg:
"Today the Senate took a crucial first step towards ensuring the security of our borders and offering a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. The Board of Directors of the National Consumers League supports a principled, comprehensive immigration reform that treats all immigrants with respect and dignity, no matter their legal status in the United States.
"Earlier this year, NCL passed for the first time in its 114-year history a Board policy calling for comprehensive immigration reform that reflects both the League’s history and legacy--reform that supports workers and consumers, our interest and values as Americans, and is consistent with our nation’s commitment to fairness and equality."
