United Steelworkers opposes Plan Mexico


The United Steelworkers union announced today that it opposes handing Mexico what amounts to a blank check for $500 million for border enforcement of drug trafficking because it‰s likely the American tax dollars will instead end up further undermining human and labor rights in Mexico. […]
Gerard noted that giving such an administration access to an unrestricted $500 million for law enforcement would make matters worse. ‹Indeed, the repression of labor unions and human rights organizations will likely lead even more Mexicans to conclude that their only future lies in migration to the U.S.,Š he wrote.
