Labor, Hispanic Groups Now Oppose Senate Bill

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Labor is waking up to the fact that illegal immigration is a crime against American workers. Hispanic advocates say the Senate bill does not go far enough.

We'll take our allies wherever we can find them:


"This takes a problem we have and, instead of solving it, makes it worse," said Richard L. Trumka, secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO. He said the temporary-worker program that the bill sets up would hurt U.S. workers by providing a source of cheap labor that would depress Americans' wages...

The Hispanic groups said there is no reason to change the current system, which favors family reunification, and said there is no clamor for the point system.

"It's important for us to be able to walk away from a bad bill, and that's what we're asking Congress to do," said Brent A. Wilkes, executive director of the League of United Latin American Citizens.

Had Enough said:

I read where "La Raza" was a contributing crafter of the bill and they had veto rights on the content of the original draft.

Just like as the banks crafted the new bankruptcy laws in 2005.

Amazing how our lawmakers are outsourcing their jobs to banks and extreme political groups.

This is no different than the judge dining out with the defendant the night before the trial.

H.E., I heard the same thing but never actually saw it written anywhere. If you can find any verification of this please pass it along.
