Joe Bernick is the long time organizational secretary of the Communist Party USA for Arizona. Bernick and his party have fought tooth and nail for decades to increase illegal immigration and to make it difficult to apprehend and deport illegals. Arizona is a stronghold of the party in the Southwest, because the communists view increased illegal immigration as an important tool in their plan to revolutionize American society.
Medina is THE leading pro-illegal immigrant activist in the country.
According to the Democratic Socialists of America website, Eliseo Medina is widely credited with playing a key role in the AFL-CIO‘s decision to adopt a new policy on immigration a few years ago and was one of the organizers of the Immigrant Workers Freedom Bus Rides in 2003.
According to the SEIU website, Medina has played the leading role in uniting the Change to Win and AFL-CIO labor federations behind the immigration reform movement – to the complete detriment of their rank and file members.
Working to ensure the opportunity to pass comprehensive immigration reform does not slip away, Medina led the effort to unite the unions of the Change to Win federation and AFL-CIO around a comprehensive framework for reform. Serving as a leading voice in Washington, frequently testifying before Congress, Medina has also helped to build a strong, diverse coalition of community and national partners that have intensified the call for reform and cultivated necessary political capitol to hold elected leaders accountable. Medina has also helped strengthen ties between the Roman Catholic Church and the labor movement to work on common concerns such as immigrant worker rights and access to health care.
At the far leftist America’s Future Now! conference in Washington, DC on June 2, 2009, Eliseo Medina addressed attendees on the necessity of comprehensive immigration reform. The reason he gave though had little to do with helping illegals. It was all about securing more votes for the Democratic Party.
Speaking of Latino voters, Medina said “when they voted in November, they voted overwhelmingly for progressive candidates. Barack Obama got two out of every three voters that showed up.”
So I think there’s two things that matter for the progressive community.
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.
“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…
America’s two leading Marxist organizations are doing everything they can do destroy any Federal or state opposition to illegal immigration.
Why? Because they also want to destroy America.
