SEIU: In 2006 they wanted 2m, Now they want 8m Illegal Immigrants to become Voters

SEIU Vice President, Eliseo Medina, 2009
The SEIU is one of the largest unions in the states, claiming 2.2m members. On June 2, 2009 the Vice President of the SEIU addressed the America's Future Now! conference in Washington, D.C. For almost a year the video languished in the SEIU's Youtube channel, until Kiwi blogger Trevor Loudon, following a lead, came across the video and reposted a segment of it on Youtube. In the incriminating video which is now going viral, Medina states,

"Number one: If we are to expand this electorate to win, the progressive community needs to solidly be on the side of immigrants, that we'll expand and solidify the progressive coalition for the future... When you are in the middle of a fight for your life you will remember who was there with you. And immigrants count on progressives to be able to do that.
Number two: 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."

Medina's support for immigration reform is shamelessly and blatantly based largely upon his desire for the illegal (mainly Latino) immigrants to become progressive (Democrat) voters. Prima Facie he has claimed that these people need a voice so that their rights will be upheld, and that does even sound somewhat admirable. But when in the next breath he estimates that 8 million of the 12 million new citizens will become progressive voters, his agenda just sickens you. Trevor has blogged on Obama's socialist advisers pushing for immigration reform, and their motivation behind it in his ObamaFile 95.


SEIU Vice President, Eliseo Medina, 2006
This is nothing new. In 2006 Medina addressed the Social Economic Justice Forum where he made the following statement,

"To build the power to win, we need to massively increase civic participation and voter education. Imagine... Imagine the kind of difference we could make in 2008 if we had 2 million voters go to the polls with us. Imagine... if we had 2 million new and current citizens who not only will register to vote in 2008 but actually turn out on election day.

It's the same message - three years ago, before the 2008 election in which the Democrats narrowly took power. And three years ago the SEIU's goal was 2 million illegal immigrants becoming Democrat voters. But now, in 2010 as we approach the mid-term elections and the 2012 general elections, here's one of the largest unions in the States seeking to gain not 2 million but 8 million additional progressive voters. Do they have no shame?

When you consider that SEIU President, Andy Stern topped the list of Whitehouse visitors with 22 visits to the President's home between Jan. and July 2009, and then bring to mind Medina's comments on behalf of the union, you have to ask yourself what is going on.
