Amid blind support for his left-wing ideology, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka forgot his claim to represent the “working man” and joined Wade Henderson, President of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, in a letter this week to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, calling for the immediate stop of federal cooperation with Arizona law enforcement officials or,

“be complicit in the racial profiling that lies at the heart of the Arizona law. [S.B. 1070]”

But Trumka’s ideology differs from his union members. Recognizing Trumka’s support for Amnesty as an opportunity to undermine employment opportunities for legal citizens while increasing the union’s voting power and dues, union members are loudly expressing their discontent with leadership on the AFL-CIO’s blog:

Dr: “What the Hell is wrong with the AFL-CIO? Do you not understand that the legal citizen of this great country is tired of supporting non citizens.The great majority of the Rank and File wholeheartedly support Arizona’s effort to do something to curb the abused brought on us by Illegal Immigration.”

homerj1970: “I GOT YOUR BACK BROTHER!! I am IBEW Local 827, and I am disgusted by the stance taken by the AFL-CIO!! THEY HAVE BETRAYED EVERY UNION BROTHER AND SISTER!!!!!!”

duhman182: “The AFL CIO is not stupid they are looking to lock in votes and also make money they don’t give a damn about you.”

dbozman: “I am appalled that the union leadership would advocate that the federal government should REFUSE to cooperate with AZ – in other words to CONTINUE TO FAIL IN THEIR DUTY TO ENFORCE OUR LAWS AND SECURE OUR BORDERS. By the way, I plan to boycott anyone who boycotts Arizona.”

oldmanward5: “I fail to understand how the President of the AFL-CIO can possibly side with ILLEGALS entering our country and taking OUR JOBS. I have been out of work now for over FOUR MONTHS AND in my Local there are guys that have been out of work for OVER A YEAR!”

Titan58: “AFL-CIO NEED NEW LEADERSHIP!!! We need Leadership who cares for UNITED STATES CITIZENS.
A word of advice to union leaders: The assault on real Americans is not without consequence. You too can be isolated, marginalized, and easily replaced.
