The Democrats Just Don’t Get It
Democrats just don’t get it. For some reason they continue to focus on the wants and desires of illegal aliens. They appear to ignore the needs of Americans and foreign nationals who have waited in line and jumped through all the immigration hoops legally.
They scream “racism” at the drop of a hat. Even the AFL-CIO, long a Democrat supporter and political donation generator, has now gotten into the act. Here’s a tweet by the President of the AFL-CIO , Richard Trumka, regarding the ICE enforcement operation that arrested over 600 illegal aliens who were working with false documents and thereby taking jobs from Americans.
It’s obvious who Mr Trumka sees as his priority. It surely isn’t the majority of his membership. It surely isn’t American union members denied jobs because employers are hiring illegal aliens who by being here and working, drive down everyone’s wages. What about their need to put food on the table Mr. Trumka?
Remember those Democrat voters who then candidate Trump famously asked, “What have you got to lose?” AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka just alienated a few more of them who will be joining their fellows at the polls to flip the lever for Donald J. Trump in 2020.
When first published, I erroneously misspelled Mr Trumka’s last name. Must have been a Freudian slip. Error has been corrected.
