AFL-CIO Prepared To Ditch Future Flow Section of CIR and Kill Reform Process

Rate this Entry

[Update: Politico is reporting the same thing as Hesson. They're saying Avedano "said a temporary worker program shouldn't be necessary for lawmakers
to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation -- a position
that puts her at odds with Senate Republicans, who insist that any bill
include such a program." So there you are. The AFL-CIO is perfectly content to kill this process.]


Ted Hesson at ABC News is saying on Twitter that Ana Avedano from the AFL-CIO doesn't seem to think a guest worker program is all that important (even though this would be the end of immigration reform and most of the Republicans in the Senate would walk away if that section is left out (quite understandably). On the other hand, the Hill has just posted a story quoting Ms. Avedano saying almost the opposite.


I've blogged several times in the last week that the AFL-CIO is NOT pro-immigration. They are only negotiating out of fear of being saddled with that label and would like to be perceived as friendly to Hispanics while at the same time keeping as many of them from entering the country as possible in the years to come.

    How can you expect adding more guest workers to an economy that is already crumbling?...How can you expect adding more guest workers to an economy when the REAL unemployment rate is above 23%?...How can you expect adding more guest workers to an economy when 1 out 4 people in the US (citizens and legal residents) depend on some sort of government financial assistance to survive: retirement benefits, disability insurance, unemployment insurance, general assistance, food stamps, etc.

    The only feasible adjustment at this point is to legalize the unlawfully present immigrants (20+ million individuals), so they can be heavily taxed (and fined too) and forcing many of them to join the military.

    That's why this reality show called "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" has been designed to keep entertained and distracted the ignorant masses from focusing their attention to critical issues such as the REAL possibility of a thermonuclear war in the Korean Peninsula and the subsequent collapse of the global financial system...wake up to reality folks (or better say stop been in a state of self-denialism).
