I worked for the AFL-CIO for many years and I have been appalled by its recent stand on immigration and cannot tell you how happy I am to see it may be coming to its senses. I hit a number of blogs and it is not at all unusual to have rank and file members blogging against expanded immigration and illegal immigration AND including their local union identity. I have a feeling some of these folks may have started screaming.
The thing we have to remember and hammer home is this: The people supporting massive immigration are the people who are least affected by it. It isn`t their neighborhoods that are being filled with boarding houses that used to be single family homes and that are becoming open air labor markets. It`s not their children`s schools that are being destroyed by ESL, gangs, and lowered standards. The illegal workers aren`t competing with them to head think tanks or driving down their wages.
