Immigration Reform (a.k.a. amnesty)is a key SEIU issue as it would allow the unions to add millions of members to its rolls, filling its bank accounts, while bringing its failing pension plans closer to solvency. Unfortunately for the union much of its membership is very much opposed to amnesty. According to Executive VP Gerry Hudson even the African-American union members are very anti-illegal immigration. But in the video below Hudson reveals his strategy. He portrays the African-American workers as easy dupes “it doesn’t take a whole lot to argue African-American workers to another place.” But those white workers are “so f***ing rabidly racist.” All Hudson has to do to motivate the African-Americans is point over there to the white guys and say “look at what’s there.”
Essentially he is saying that the black people he represents are all weak-minded idiots and the whites are all racists. Gee that SEIU really has so much respect for its members:

The SEIU doesn’t need to respect its members because their fight for illegal immigrants has nothing to do with members, its all about the power to perpetuate its role in the progressive movement. At the “progressive” America’s Future Now! conference in Washington, DC this past June, another SEIU International Executive Vice President, Eliseo Medina addressed attendees on the issue immigration reform. Mr. Medina gave the Progressives reason for amnesty, 8 million new progressive voters:
We reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. Can you imagine if we have, even the same ratio, two out of three?
If we have eight million new voters who care about …… and will be voting. We will be creating a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle.
It remains interesting that neither of SEIU leaders show much compassion or respect for its members, they are just tools to help them reach their objective.
