The Illegal Immigrant Union
Now this just plain pisses me off. Take a look at three-year-old Sophia Parlock, crying after having her Bush-Cheney sign torn up by Kerry-Edwards supporters on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004, at the Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va.
Now take a look at the "lady" in the background, the one with the purple shirt, who can't seem to close her mouth. I recognize that shirt. Oh yes I do. I see them every day.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is the union which represents the most unskilled and lowest paid workers. It is the largest and fastest growing union in the AFL-CIO, representing a high percentage of immigrant workers, many of whom are in the United States illegally. Imagine that! The largest and fastest growing union in the AFL-CIO happens to owe much of its growth to the recruiting of illegal aliens. Dues paying illegal aliens.
The SEIU stresses the need "to build a powerful, new immigrant electorate." Their strategy? Complete amnesty for illegal aliens. They rejected Bush's plan for earned legal status through employment because it doesn't provide full and immediate political rights.
Political rights are a main issue for the SEIU. Why? Because the SEIU carefully grooms its members to vote for an agenda farther to the left than that of today's democrats. Of course, unskilled and low-paid workers are prime fodder for the leftist agenda. Those who can afford their own homes and send their children to college are not.
SEIU members are urged to participate in politics even if they are not citizens and even if they are not legal residents. On its website, the SEIU tells them "If you can't vote, you still have a voice."
Imagine the effect of an influx into our political system of millions of illegal aliens working as janitors, kitchen helpers and day laborers, all carefully groomed to vote to the far-left.
Oh. By the way, at its national convention this year, the SEIU adopted foreign policy resolutions such as a call for "An end to the U.S. occupation of Iraq." It also issued a statement claiming "the goal of our foreign policy must be to promote a safer and more just world" and "must give high priority to improving the lives of people around the world. Yet, at the same time, the SEIU believes that forcefully removing Saddam Hussein from power violated these principles.
So. The policies of Saddam Hussein promoted a safer and more just world? The millions of people brutally mutilated and murdered by Saddam Husein should consider their lives improved?
The purple shirt? One of theirs.
