I believe you and your fellow Democrats should take note of a recent Rasmussen poll. It shows that union members are not fond of your party’s immigration proposals.

Union members were asked: “Do you favor or oppose a proposal to provide a path to U.S. citizenship for illegal immigrants already in this country, penalize employers for hiring illegal immigrants and take other steps to secure the nation’s borders?”

While 59% of all Americans supported the proposal, only 40% union members did, while 36% opposed. From these numbers, it’s clear that union members are less-than-excited about your party’s amnesty plans.

From the same Rasmussen poll, it was also shown that only 43% of union members think legalization is important and only 40% favor the Senate Group of Eight proposal.

Amnesty is bad for America and bad for American workers. I hope you will oppose any legislation that allows amnestied illegal aliens to compete against U.S. workers for U.S. jobs.

Phone me if you would like to talk about this.
