    United We Dream aka SEIU & Teamsters Occupy Washington

    United We Dream aka SEIU & Teamsters Occupy Washington


    June 27, 2014 - 3:05 pm

    Whenever we see yet another movement group pushing for immigration reform, or in this case, amnesty, you can be sure someone like SEIU is not far behind. From The Hill, this afternoon’s move is their latest to accomplish the following:

    The group is pushing for the Obama administration to expand a 2012 program that allows some children brought to the country illegally to be deprioritized for deportation. The group wants the program to include the family members of those children as well.

    In other words, amnesty. In other words, no enforcement, and in fact, a reward for a lawless and orchestrated invasion of our borders.

    Today’s planned “occupying” of the House office buildings is just more of the same. Conducted by the group “United We Dream”, a quick check links them right back to the usual sources. The United We Dream website locates their offices at 1900 L St. NW Suite 900

    Washington, DC 20036. No coincidence, this is the very same address, even specific to the suite number, of the CtW Investment Group. CtW stands for Change to Win, and this is the group that handles their money:

    Founded in February 2006, the CtW Investment Group works with pension funds sponsored by unions affiliated with Change to Win, a federation of unions representing nearly 5.5 million members, to enhance long-term shareholder returns through active ownership.

    A quick look at their News page illustrates the constant bashing of companies like Wal Mart that seems to be a big part of what they do.

    Moving over to the Change to Win website, it is pretty quick to see exactly where they are coming from. The home page suggests and links to the following blogs:

    Think Progress
    Crooks and Liars
    United Food and Commercial Workers
    Service Employees International Union
    Daily Kos

    The About page shares the identity of the “Leadership Council”, with President James Hoffa of the Teamsters at the helm. Joining him are representatives of SEIU, UFW and UFCW, so we have quite a strong mix of unions working together here.

    As just one example tying them directly together, their own story about victory in a case of halting a deportation:

    Harnessing the power of organizing, collaboration, and advocacy, the United We Dream Network (UWD), along with Students Working For Equal Rights (SWER), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), waged a multi-pronged campaign to halt Walter’s deportation in just four days.

    Now when you see the group name of “United We Dream”, you’ll know whose dream it really is. More like a nightmare.

    Amnesty Advocates Storm Congress over Threats to DACA

    by Tony Lee 27 Jun 2014, 3:06 PM PDT

    Amnesty advocates stormed Congress Friday and dared Representatives, particularly Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), to take away their Deferred Action status.

    Nearly 560,000 people have received temporary amnesty and work permits after President Barack Obama unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program two years ago. In September, those who received DACA in 2012 can apply to renew their status for an additional two years.

    Julieta Garibay, the co-founder of the activist United We Dream group, tweeted a photo as activists were storming Issa's office and wrote, "#dreamers taking over @DarrellIssa's office after his ridiculous statement against #DACA telling him 'Come & take it!'"

    Garibay was referring to a letter Issa wrote to House colleagues this week in which he reportedly wrote that Obama should "make an explicit public commitment that [he] will not support legislation that extends legal status to newly arriving illegal aliens no matter the age."

    "[T]he very existence of the program contradicts present law and violates the Constitutional principle of a separation of powers which grants primary law making authority to the Congress," Issa wrote, according to The Huffington Post. "The Executive does not get to pick and choose which laws must be enforced and which can be selectively ignored... DACA rewards families and individuals who have broken our laws, further encouraging others to seek similar benefits."

    United We Dream is reportedly pushing for the temporary amnesty program to be extended to family members of DACA recipients.
