Excerpt: The True Agenda of Immigration Protests

Service Employees International Union
Perhaps most the most insidious groups organizing protests against enforcing American immigration law are large labor unions, most notably SEIU and the AFL-CIO. An executive director of SEIU said that the union "will not be deterred" in their quest for amnesty, a major change for unions which were formerly opponents of such plans due to fear that the new workers would compete with their members. (In 2001, Vernon Briggs wrote an excellent and still relevant discussion of the history of the labor movement and immigration.) Now, they believe they'll be able to unionize illegal immigrants if the illegals received amnesty.
As we watch protesters in the streets of America, chanting in a language other than English, waving flags other than that of the United States, perhaps we all need to thank the legislators and governor of Arizona for pushing back against the menacing cries of "Si se puede." Sorry, La Raza, Mecha, and SEIU, but No, You Can't.

Government funded front groups
...The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is the government Union whose president boasts "We spent a fortune to elect Barack Obama -- $60.7 million to be exact -- and we're proud of it." Apparently they've reaped windfall profits from their investment. They're the nation's fastest growing union which isn't surprising since under the Progressives the government is the only sector of the economy that's growing.
