This past weekend, the AFT-Wisconsin Executive Board voted to endorse the AFT-Wisconsin Statement on Refugees, Immigration, and the Trump Agenda. The Statement is about the recent Executive Orders on refugees and immigrants issued by President Trump, but also and more broadly about the role of our unions in times like these.
