Standing with Families Impacted by Hurricane Patricia

hurricanStatement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the need to protect and support Mexican nationals from regions affected by Hurricane Patricia


The AFL-CIO urges the U.S. government to halt removals and provide relief to individuals from the regions of Mexico that have been most directly affected by Hurricane Patricia. As we slowly learn the extent of the destruction in rural and coastal communities, we should ensure that Mexican nationals from the hurricane-impacted regions are not deported.


Our thoughts and prayers are with all those whose lives have been touched by this terrible storm. We will do all that we can to support a full and rapid recovery.
