A few days ago, I received this letter from the SEIU. I did not know the union was using my dollars to push immigration reform. The person who wrote
the letter is an illegal who is making over 60,000 per yr. I pay my dues to make a better life for myself and American citizens. Im just letting
people know what our dollars are actually paying for, so they make an informed choice about your money being used to push legislation that in the long
run is only going to create more competition for jobs. The union is a powerful entity and our money gives them that power.
Im pretty sure there are many citizens who would love to make 60,000 per yr. I was unable to find out how many illegals are employed by the Seiu.
I will be leaving the SEIU. Im not against legal immigration, but I dont want my dues used to influence our law makers to make illegal immigration
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Earlier this month, the Trump administration announced some heartbreaking news about putting an end to the DACA program. Dreamers now face the threat
of deportation and losing their jobs.
I am one of the millions who face the risk of deportation, losing my job, and being separated from my family. This is why I am asking you today to
take a moment to call Congress and let them know to protect dreamers and do their job by passing the Dream Act now.
I have dedicated my career to fighting for the rights of workers and communities, I had to sit down and think about what rights I have and what I have
to do to protect myself and those around me in my same situation. I am upset that in this century and in this country, I still have to live in fear
because of how I look and even how I sound. I am human and I am just missing a piece of paper that denies me the right to call this country home. What
I am feeling now is propelled by the love and hope of a better tomorrow for all 11 million immigrants and working families in this country who seek
dignity and respect that has been denied to them.
The fight for dignity and respect is paved with wins. Wins that more often than not, come in the form of bills that become laws. A #cleanDREAMact will
be a giant step towards true immigrant justice. As I fight for the dignity and respect of every worker - from bargaining tables to the halls of the
state capitol - by doing what I love, serving the members of SEIU Local 2015 as a fearless organizer, I ask that you also fight with me and the close
to 1 million Dreamers like me.
Please call Congress and ask that they protect Dreamers by supporting a clean DREAM Act. We deserve a chance to continue living in the country we love
deeply. We must not sit back and allow those in congress to treat us as their political pawns.
Join me in the fight for a #cleanDREAMact! Make a call today and demand that Congress pass the Dream Act to protect the future of our country.
My name is Pablo Reyes and this is my story.
