Working Families Send Messages of Solidarity to Immigrant Workers on Hunger Strike
AFL-CIO ^ | 4/28/2014 | Jackie Tortora

Posted on 04/28/2014 6:22:39 PM PDT by mdittmar

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka visited hunger strikers last week outside the White House who are protesting deportations that rip families apart from each other. We asked our mobile supporters to send messages of solidarity and encouragement to the hunger strikers. Here are some highlights from what you said:



TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: aflcio; illegalaliens; illegals
Me thinks the afl-cio is sending messages to it's own "hunger strikers".

They are hungry for new members;)

Here's hoping it's a long and successful hunger strike, in that they all attain its logical conclusion.

[Me thinks the afl-cio is sending messages to it's own “hunger strikers”. They are hungry for new members]

New members are meaningless unless they have jobs and can pay dues. Immigration reform/Amnesty will inflate the U.S. labor force, dilute wages and benefits, and make union busting easier for employers. AFL/CIO played a big role in killing the Bush amnesty push in 2007. Big labor has always opposed immigration. Even Cesar Chavez, head of United Farm Workers, waged a battle against illegal aliens stealing the jobs of American Latinos.

I think the union leadership pays lip service to amnesty because its a Democrat cause but in reality are plotting a way for Obama to kill it—like he did as a senator in 2007—and blame it on the GOP.

"New members are meaningless unless they have jobs and can pay dues.'

Old members are meaningless unless they have jobs and can pay dues.

The "pay dues" part is the key.

Figures. “Working families” = the greedy, Obergruppenfuhrer little Dick Trumka. That boy probably hasn’t worked a day in his fat ass life.

Good time for a hunger strike, food prices are skyrocketing

I assume after getting amnesty they will demand more $$ for food stamps.

I’ve said it before, hunger strikes are the lamest passive aggressive BS ever.

They should man up and light themselves on fire.

Somehow Comrade Trumka has yet to hand over his job to Miguel Rodriguez from Guadalajara.But he's absolutely fine with Americans,particularly Americans "of color",being unemployed when these invaders have work...probably after having given a stolen social security number.

Also,ten bucks says that if Comrade Trumka ever saw any of these brown skinned people in his millionaire neighborhood who weren't pushing a lawnmower he'd be on the phone with the state police in a heartbeat.

IDIOCY:

American workers, especially union workers, supporting amnesty for illegals who will then take many of the scsrce jobs available.

Amnested illegals will have the greatest impact on blacks and the poor who will have to compete with the low skilled, amnested illegals for jobs.

Trumka and his solidarity...

Maybe he should take a trip to Egypt and repeat the MoBro support he expressed during the “revolution” just a few short years ago.

The unions understand that they will MORE POLITICAL POWER than ever if Amnesty is passed, thanks to this country becoming a ONE PARTY STATE.

It bites that the Republicans cannot seem to figure this out.

Inside the immigration reform bill (1198 pp; NOT ONE LINE protects Americans)

Inch your way through the Senate immigration bill and you’ll find special stuff for ski instructors, cruise line repairmen and Irish workers......“committee’’ mentioned 152 times; task forces cited 39 times.

Welcome to the Senate’s 1,198-page blueprint for overhauling the nation’s immigration system. Few lawmakers probably read the weighty tome (SOUND FAMILIAR), so we did. And we found it full of exacting details, excruciating bureaucracy and a little pork......given the number of lawmakers who confessed they didn’t read the 2010 health care law, the question arises whether they’ve read the whole thing. Their stock answer is that staff reviews each page and warns about politically troublesome pieces.

....there’s a section starting on page 113 titled “protection of ILLEGAL family values in ILLEGAL apprehension programs.” Should an illegal be deterred at the border, US officials would have to determine if they were a parent, guardian or child. Then, when determining repatriation or prosecution, they have to consider “family unity whenever possible,” as well as “the best interest of the illegals' child.”

The northern border and the southern border get different treatment. The bill lays out in precise detail the kind of security it wants along the U.S.-Mexico divide. In the El Paso region, for example, the bill specifies 71 fixed camera systems, 170 “unattended ground sensors,” 24 handheld equipment devices, 31 mobile surveillance systems, and so on. There are also provisions along the southern border for four unmanned aircraft systems, or drones, 30 marine vessels, 17 additional Huey helicopters, 10 converted and five new Black Hawk helicopters and more.

SUNNATION Of 1198 pages---8 pages are devoted to the amnesty bill itself; 1190 pages are devoted to politicans' kickback, exceptions, what they forgot in the last bill and previous bills, slush funds, pork funds (like why porn stars don't like condoms, naming of bldg., & Hwys, bridges, airports(.....and the usual unnecessary spending and tax-paid bailouts.

Nothing about protecting Americans from the murderous problem of Middle Eastern illegal alien terrorists that gather at the Mexican border, cross over into the US, and hide in terrorist sleeper cells around US military installations, in high-hazard US facilities, conspiring against Americans.

Elected officials are placing Obama's dream of a Democratic majority and his Marxism, and political correctness above the safety and security of Americans, US national security, the preservation of our Constitution, law and order, and our sacrosanct rule of law.

Includes BOTH Democrats and RINO/GOP leaders/followers in the Republican Party participating.

====================================================

Meet the new Dummycrats---voting several times each under several identities----salivating at the chance to lord it over Americans (who are paying the bills). Quoting America hater Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter: “The ultimate MECha ideology is the liberation of Aztlan (taking back the SW USA). Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established on US soil, ethnic cleansing (of Americans) would commence: Non-Chicanos (Americans) would have to be expelled — opposition groups (that's us) would be quashed because latinos have to keep power.”

======================================================

Amnesty pimps like Pelosi, Schumer and Gutierrez are awfully close-mouthed about federal Tax dollars flowing to race-based, blood-thirsty "La Raza." The amnesty bill would gift LaRaza w/ a neverending untraceable $100 million per year slush fund to conduct its hate-America activites.

NOTE Violence-filled La Raza was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its )ahem) mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the lowering mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards. La Raza aided and abetted risky federal and private-home loans to latinos over the last decade thanks to the lending industry’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

In addition to millions of federal tax dollars, La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down).

-===============================================

Republican Sen Charles Grassley tried to assist Americans w/ an amendment to the amnesty bill "Congress should not thumb its nose at the millions of Americans who are victims of identity theft, often perpetrated by an undocumented person who steals Social Security numbers to get jobs, govt benefits, driver's licenses and more. This amendment will simply require the person applying for RPI status to disclose any previously used Social Security numbers," said Grassley. "It's the first step to helping clean up the mess that's been created for the victim of identity theft. The amendment also authorizes certain federal agencies, upon receipt of this information, to notify individuals who were the victims."

SEN SCHUMER CHIMED IN: Dismissing Sen Grassley's proposal, ranking Dem member Sen Schumer (Dimwit-NY) said: "When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they've made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don't see how, when you've lived here 10 years, and you've had many different identities, many different numbers, you're going to remember them all," said Schumer. ///// AMNESTY PROTECTION RACKET Would you believe the amnesty bill actually protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.......only latino pols, mind you.

Vote-crazed Dems allow amnesty to absolve elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

Lighter fluid works well too... makes it smell like a charcoal briquette barbecue.

For that outdoorsy, grilled flavor.... with a hint of hickory and sage.

Gee... they just LOVE that communist terminology, don’t they? But we know they’re not communist, right? Right?

“...Keep up the fight. Hasta la Victoria....”
Sounds like they’re at WAR with us, doesn’t it...?

Yeah, we NEED millions of new Democrat socialists here. Time to make the gringos pay up.
