Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.
 

Service Employees International Union

Union previously run by the deeply Obama-linked Andy Stern. Many of their members are illegal aliens and they very strongly support illegal immigration. They certainly have a financial interest in supporting illegal immigration: some portion of the dues they receive are from the wages of illegal aliens, i.e., money that was earned illegally.

Their support for illegal immigration has gone as far as paying someone linked to the Mexican government to organize immigration marches. They paid the base salary for Artemio Arreola - a member of the Mexican government's Institute for Mexicans Abroad advisory council - for six months while he organized immigration marches and the like. (Organizing the new movement)

One of the organizers of May 1 Chicago march. Barack Obama spoke at the May 1 event.

A sponsor of the September 1 Chicago march (organized by Jorge Mujica, an official with Mexico's PRD party).

Member of the We Are America Alliance. One other member group is the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) headed by Juan Salgado, also a member of the Mexican government's Institute for Mexicans Abroad advisory council. Another member group, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) has allegedly collaborated with the Mexican government.

Representatives appeared at the National Immigrant Rights Strategy Convention.

Jaime Contreras, president of the National Capital Immigrant Coalition is District Chair and Supervisor of SEIU Local 32BJ.

With other unions, member of the Change to Win group.

With CHIRLA and ICIRR, a member of the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
