Labor union supports illegal aliens arrested by ICE in Mississippi.
They’ve lost their way.
They are SOOOOO Corrupt that they forgot who they represent.
AFL-CIO Union President Richard Trumka posted several tweets on Thursday in support of illegal aliens taking US jobs.
Rishard Trumka: We condemn these raids in the strongest possible terms and pledge our full support to @UFCW and the working people of Mississippi as they work to win justice for all those who were unfairly targeted.
Face it US workers, they’re just not into you.
Illegal alien labor has decimated the US meat packing industry.
The jobs that once provided for large families are now barely pay above minimum wage.
And the AFL-CIO supports this.
The democrat party has lost its mind or left it in the wigwam.

You must pay union fees to get & keep a govt job? Your money spent to support political views you fundamentally disagree with? That’s wrong. This violates your freedom of speech rights.
For example, the SEIU supported Obama in 2008 & 2012 and supported Hillary Clinton in 2016. The SEIU pours millions of dollars into the Democrat Party each election cycle. Why should union dues you must pay to keep your job be spent for politics you disagree with?
The Supreme Court hears a case on this issue starting Monday, February 26. This is from the Wall Street Journal:
“Across the U.S., more than 500,000 state and local workers have objected to funding union advocacy but are nonetheless required by law to pay “fair share” fees to labor unions they have refused to join. The Supreme Court upheld the practice in a 1977 case, Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, reasoning that otherwise workers could “free ride” on the union’s collective bargaining. Prohibiting unions from charging nonmembers directly for political speech, it believed, would protect their First Amendment rights.
“On Monday the justices will hear oral arguments in a challenge to that 1977 decision brought by Mr. Janus. They should heed Justice Felix Frankfurter’s observation, in an earlier case on mandatory union fees, that it is “rather naive” to assume “that economic and political concerns are separable.” As Mr. Janus argues, bargaining over wages, pensions and benefits in the public sector involves issues of intense public concern and thus core First Amendment-protected speech. A state law that forces public employees to fund that speech violates their rights, no less than compelling them to speak. ( Janus v. Afscme doesn’t consider these questions for unions in the private sector.)
Stop taking money from government workers’ paychecks. People are smart and can decide for themselves what politics they want to support.
The potential for Voter fraud has a long history. For example, there are four million dead persons on the voter rolls. Some dead people do vote?
Now we learn that Detroit, run by the Democrat Party for decades, reports 37% of the precincts in Detroit reported more votes than voters.
It’s well known that Democrats including President Obama and Hilary Clinton are opposed to voter ID laws. So what’s the story with other cities dominated by the Democrat Party? Or states like California long run by Democrats?
Back to Detroit: Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books.
Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday. (snip)
“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t normal,” said Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers.
Per the Heritage Foundation voter fraud has been around and has a long history. It’s going to take some time to sort out allegations of fraud in the 2016 elections.
For sure, in 2016 the Democrat Party which controls Detroit, has more people voting than voters.
