    SEIU picks immigration advocate as number two

    SEIU picks immigration advocate as number two

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) announced its new secretary-treasurer Wednesday.

    Eliseo Medina was elected by the union's executive board to serve the remainder of Anna Burger's term, until 2012.

    Earlier this year, Burger resigned her seat as secretary-treasurer after she saw her effort to take the top spot at SEIU fall short. Mary Kay Henry is now president of the politically powerful union — thanks partly to the support of Medina — after she campaigned for the seat when Andy Stern, president for 14 years, retired.

    Medina was the leader to unite several unions, including the AFL-CIO, behind a framework for a comprehensive immigration reform bill. SEIU has been one of the most active unions in support of a new reform bill.

    Medina will be the first Latino to serve in the secretary-treasurer position for the union.

    Amazing how you read a Hispnic name gaining power and they ONLY SUPPORT their fellow Hispanics.
    I keep wondering"who is the real racist"in all these debates over immigration or support of enforcing our borders and laws OF THIS COUNTRY.
