ND hosts lecture on immigration and the labor force, DACA recipients included
SOUTH BEND, Ind.- A lecture is being held today at the University of Notre Dame as the DACA controversy continues.
Friday, at 12:30 p.m., many will gather to learn about the relationship between immigration and the labor force.
Both the Executive Director of La Casa de Amistad, Sam Centellas and the President of the North Central Indiana AFL-CIO, Tony Flora say America works best when we all work together so they want to explain the importance not only DACA recipients have, but also undocumented workers.
The name of this lecture is, "Expanding Solidarity: The Importance of Labor-Immigrant Coalitions.
ABC57 News has been reporting that as of Tuesday September 5th the Trump Administration put a halt on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which affects almost 10,000 recipients in the state of Indiana.
Centellas says many are coming together to not only learn about the impact of immigration and the labor force, but also how that might be affected in the coming months and the main topic of conversation: labor community coalition
“President Obama, the interim, as we all know took action that’s where DACA came from," says Flora. "Why he did he? Because congress would not address the fact that we have 11 million people who live here in an underground economy."
