It’s bad enough that Obama has thrown the borders open to allow millions of illegal immigrants to come flooding into our country to take our jobs and steal billions of our tax dollars in free “benefits.” But now Obama has signed an agreement with Mexico–WITH MEXICO–to instruct these illegals how to unionize their places of employment, an act that will force all of us to pay more for everything we do.
Obama has signed this agreement with Mexico and two other nations–the Philippines and Ecuador.
The agreements do not distinguish between those who entered legally or illegally. They are part of a broader effort by the National Labor Relations Board to get immigrants involved in union activism.
The five-member board is the agency that enforces the National Labor Relations Act, the main federal law covering unions. In 2013, Lafe Solomon, the board’s then-acting general counsel, signed a “memorandum of understanding” with Mexico’s U.S. ambassador. The current general counsel, Richard Griffin, signed additional agreements with the ambassadors of Ecuador and the Philippines last year.
“Those are the only countries that the NLRB has MOUs with,” said spokeswoman Jessica Kahanek.
The agreements are substantially similar, with several sections repeated verbatim in each one. All three documents state that the No. 1 outreach goal is “to educate those who may not be aware of the Act, including those employees just entering the work force, by providing information designed to clearly inform [that nation’s] workers in the United States of America their rights under the Act and to develop ways of communicating such information (e.g., via print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, mobile device applications, and links to the NLRB’s web site from the [country’s] web sites) to the … workers residing in the United States of America and their employers.”
The board has said the law’s protections for workers engaged in union organizing extend even to people who are not legally authorized to work in the U.S. An employer who fires an illegal immigrant worker–which is required under federal immigration law — can be sanctioned by the board if it decides the worker’s union activism was the real reason for the dismissal.
So, not only does Obama want to give away billions in freebies to illegals, but now he wants to teach them to bring destructive unions into their workplace making anything they do more expensive for us all.
