With unions having gone ‘all in’ on Amnesty for Illegals, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka wants Arizona’s new immigration law repealed:
Arizona’s new anti-immigrant law (SB 1070) is an affront to American values of fairness and respect for our constitution. The AFL-CIO joins people of conscience around the country in condemning the law, which will make racial profiling the norm—if not a requirement—in Arizona and will be impractical, unenforceable and a waste of scarce public resources.
We need urgent action. The Arizona law should not be allowed to become a model; it is bad public policy and it should be put to rest. We call on the Department of Justice to step up to its fundamental mission of protecting and defending our civil rights and immediately bring legal action to stop Arizona from implementing its ill-guided and unconstitutional law. We also call on President Obama to publicly oppose and terminate all programs — including collaborations between state and local law enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) — that result in racial profiling. Our focus should instead be on a comprehensive solution to the broken immigration system.
Well, being that unions
all mostly support Amnesty for Illegals, Trumka’s comments are not at all surprising. It is unfortunate, however, that unions don’t have the courage to call for increased border security, along with their calls for amnesty.
