MPI REPORT: UNIONS CONFLICTED ON SUPPORT OF IMMIGRANTS

Rate this Entry

A new report from the Migration Policy Institute discusses how unions have evolved from a traditionally anti-immigrant position to one that generally embraces immigrants. The major unions generally support legalization of undocumented immigrants but are divided on the concept of a guest workers program.

    Unions want people to be on an equal footing - which is why most of us labor advocates oppose guest worker programs and support permanent status instead. But, we also want to weigh the impact of increased immigration levels on current citizens and immigrants. There is a balance to be reached.

    I don't believe that anti-immigrant influences will help us in reaching that balance. We need to understand to true economic impacts of immigration and make logical decisions. I also don't believe the "immigration-anarchists" or anything goes types are very useful to the debate because their attitude is "consequences be damned".

    If guest workers fill a hole that can not be covered by natives I do not see why they are so opposed to Guest worker programs. After all many guest workers want to work for a while and then go back to their countries while making money here and gaining valuable work experience. Prime example is agriculture its seasonal work and many ag workers want to come work the fields and go back with money in their pocket and do that every year. They know they can work the crops here while in season and go back and work the crops in their country on another season.
