    SEIU to Latinos: Urge Senators to Not Join 'Extremists' who Want to Defund Exec Amnes

    SEIU to Latinos: Urge Senators to Not Join 'Extremists' who Want to Defund Exec Amnesty

    by Tony Lee 4 Dec 2014, 6:43 PM PDT 3 post a comment

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is launching a series of Spanish-language ads this week urging Latinos to ask Senate Republicans in six states to steer clear of "extremist" Senators who want to defund President Barack Obama's executive amnesty and who it claims keep "insulting our families."

    According to USA Today, the SEIU will spend "six figures" on the ads this week and will target Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Rob Portman (R-OH), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen.-elect Cory Gardner (R-CO). Sens. Johnson, Kirk, Portman, Rubio, and Toomey are up for reelection in 2016.

    Conservative Senators like Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Mike Lee (R-UT) are trying to use Congress' power of the purse to prohibit the Obama administration from using federal funds to implement his executive amnesty. Though Obama's executive amnesty will negatively impact workers, some of whom the SEIU represents, the SEIU may have an incentive to broaden its ranks—and get more membership dues—with the millions of illegal immigrants who will be granted work permits.

    The Spanish-speaking narrator says the following in the commercials (English translation):

    In the battle for immigration reform, President Obama took a bold step forward to keep our families together. But Republican politicians respond with more opposition… and keep insulting our families. Enough! Our families deserve respect and a better future. Call Senator Rob Portman. Tell him to stand with our families and not with Republican extremists. Paid for by SEIU.

    It's a real shame such a large union in our country is aligned with workers who aren't supposed to be in our country. How do they reconcile that by representing foreign workers they are harming citizen workers? Makes me wonder whether this union is actually from our country to begin with.
