On Sanctuary Unions: Because Standing Up For Immigrants Is Standing Up For Workers

Offering a powerful middle finger to Trump's divide-and-conquer rhetoric on immigration, over 120,000 Teamsters in an umbrella group of 27 locals in New York have voted to declare themselves a "sanctuary union" to protect its undocumented members. From refusing to cooperate with ICE agents who turn up at job sites to holding “Know Your Rights” trainings to safeguarding the rights of all members regardless of immigration status, says the union, “Supporting workers and supporting immigrants are completely intertwined."

There is no persecution of “immigrants” (naturalized US citizens). Only seeking the deportation of people not legally in this country. Big difference! Aren’t there penalties for employing illegal aliens? Those penalties should be substantially increased!

Pretty much know how the boys in NY/Chicago/Cleveland would respond to your attempt at intelligence.

Worked with them all.

Finally we get to the heart of what a UNION is for.

To stop the feverish abuse of the Common Laborer who is the Backbone of our Country.

Get Up, Stand Up… For Your Rights…

The rest of you…Pasta Fazool…
