Posted on 05/29/2014 3:41:18 PM PDT by mdittmar
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka issued the following statement in response to the ongoing deportation crisis in the U.S.:
We face a grave moral crisis on immigration reform. Our long-held belief is that every possible step that could be taken should be taken with great urgency. We reiterate our urgent plea that all political leaders, in both branches, act without delay to end the deportation crisis.
That means that the executive branch must provide all those who would qualify for citizenship under the bipartisan Senate Bill affirmative status with work authorization, as laid out in our policy statement.
And that means that Republican leaders must stop catering to extremists and pursue sound public policy by immediately scheduling a vote on HR 15, the House version of the bipartisan Senate immigration bill.
That's just mean-spirited;)
And unions must stop blowing member dues on politics that most members disagree with.
My English is failing me...I thought that deport was Miami...
How about we do something to defeat Mexico’s invasion instead, Mr. Trunko?
That would be because of the liberal republican Senate leadership.
You betcha. Deport them ALL, and their anchor babies too. Don't want to break up families.
It is. Its located on DeNile river.
For him, every day is cold deliberation, of how to best implement his evil, statist compulsions.
In a spectator sport sort of way, I almost wish he declares those millions of illegals to be Americans and simultaneously register them as democrats.
Why should I miss the final act to the greatest tragedy in history?
I agree, act without delay to end the deportation crisis. End the crisis by actually deporting the criminals instead of cutting them loose!
The Democrats seek more voters, and apparently the unions seek more members (and current members be damned).
What a big heart he has!
ok so Trumpka turns his back on existing union suckers and salivates at millions of potential new union illegals... Dont buy your Bentley yet fatso.. this guy is 100% douchebag thug.
Trumka? Moral? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Excuse me, what deportation crisis? Radio Fox news reported today that ICE is now flying illegals to various locations here in the US and making sure they get set up to be taken care of at tax payer expense. That to me isn’t just not enforcing the law, that’s breaking the law. Sheeple of the nation, we are being run over by the criminals in DC.
Trumka is on the side of the Mexican invaders.
I agree with Trumka. We must end the “deportation crisis” immediately - by deporting his Red ass to Cuba.
There, problem solved.
Unbelievable. This just goes to show that this pimp Trumka has absolutely no interest in the protection of his membership. He’s advocating wage suppression.
“We reiterate our urgent plea that all political leaders, in both branches, act without delay to end the deportation crisis.”
There wouldn’t be a deportation crisis if they just deported them.
I don't like unions,I work hard,get paid decent and get 7 weeks paid vacation a year.
Why would I pay dues to a union?
Trumka is a fool. There is absolutely no guarantee these illegals will join a union. None whatsoever. The trend in private sector union membership is down.
He’s arguing for wage suppression for his existing membership.
Trumka is a fat commie slob who wouldn’t last 10 seconds in a ring with a kitten.
I'm a compassionate man and I fully agree. Keep the families together, in Mexico!
Very cool!...Now, who do you work for?
We have a DEPORTATION CRISIS? Yes, we don’t deport enough...
Does Trumka want to unionize welfare recipiants. He must realize that the Asian immigrants have no use for unions.
Maybe Trumka got the wink that says he will be allowed to exploit them into union positions and both he and the Dims win on the wet backs of those who blindly toil for them.
Terry Bowman capitol hill testimony against union political activities from a couple years ago.
He’s running against John Dingell’s wife in the next district over from me.
