By and large, most unions are very pro-Democratic and pro-Obama. Their liberal political agenda allows them to blindly follow the political party that does them more harm than good. Historically, the Republican Party has done more for the common working class than the Democratic Party has. The GOP fights to keep taxes down and has actually worked to improve business and job opportunities. The Democratic Party keeps pushing for higher and higher taxes which hurt businesses, job opportunities and the common working class people of this country. Incidentally, it was the Democratic Party that fought to keep slavery alive and fought to allow segregation in schools and all facets of public life.
At least one union president is bucking the trend and urging Americans to go to the polls next week and vote against Obama’s Democrats and his impending amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Kenneth Palinkas, President of the National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, the union that represents the 12,000 immigration officers who handle illegals and deportations, stated:
“Let your voice be heard and spread the word to your neighbors…. [we] are pleading for your help – don’t let this happen.”
“Whether it’s the failure to uphold the public charge laws, the abuse of our asylum procedures, the admission of Islamist radicals, or visas for health risks, the taxpayers are being fleeced and public safety is being endangered on a daily basis.”
“This situation is about to get exponentially worse – and more dangerous… [because a] massive unilateral amnesty is slated to be issued after the November 2014 elections.”
This follows Obama’s statement:
“I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
In the past few weeks, there have been numerous reports that Obama has ordered millions of green cards to printed up and that right after next week’s election he plans to grant amnesty to the millions of illegals here in the US and give them work credentials.
Obama will stop at nothing to undermine the American economy and national security of our nation. He cares nothing about the millions of immigrants who came to the US legally, sometimes taking five to seven years of effort to come here. I have friends that are legal immigrants and they say that Obama’s actions are offensive to them and slap in their faces.
All Obama sees is 11-15 million illegals who will be allowed to vote illegally, meaning that most of them will vote Democratic. As Palinkas said, Obama needs to be stopped at the polls. If Republicans can win control of the Senate and maintain control of the House, they should be able to block Obama’s efforts to grant amnesty to the millions of illegals. This could be one of the most important midterm elections in history with millions of American jobs on the line. Get out and vote and vote AGAINST Obama and his amnesty policy!
