Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

AFL-CIO: President Obama is "No Champion of Immigrants"

Rate this Entry
In a move that is as unexpected as it is shocking, the AFL-CIO issued a statement on their official Twitter page condemning President Obama's deportation record, and stating in no uncertain terms that his record reflects that he is "no champion of immigrants." This references the President's previous claim that he is Champion-in-Chief of immigration reform.

Here is a screen shot from the AFL-CIO Twitter feed:



It appears that the tide is finally turning on this administration, as the promise to review policies after 5 years and 2 million deportations simply is not good enough even for the President's staunchest supporters.

    So the AFL-CIO's position is that every illegal entrant and resider over the last 5+ years, should have just been allowed to go about their business and been illegally employed with the law completely ignored by those who are supposed to enforce it. Who cares if illegal employment undermines the bargaining power and working conditions of their own members? But not just that--they all deserve the reward of a green card and citizenship. Anything less is outrageous and unjust ("Where's the justice?").

    "no champion of immigrants."

    You have to embrace illegality to be a champion. Anything less than total abandonment of rule of law makes you a villain. Condoning illegality is not enough, though--to be a true champion you must reward violation of law with citizenship. The question I have to those who think this way is, "What about the law?" It means nothing to them. Unless, of course, an amnesty were to pass. Then these same people who say the president has the discretion to do whatever he wants would insist that CIR be carried out--the mass legalization part I mean.
