Union Threatens Resident Aliens with Deportation if They Don’t Vote for Obama

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


All the snapshots of voter fraud that we are hearing about from Ohio, from North Carolina and Nevada are just that, tips of a far larger iceberg.

This is a creepy story because it involves Hispanic non-resident aliens being exploited by the union organization to cast illegal votes for Obama. So much for the Democratic defenders of immigrants.

Last week, I met with two immigrant noncitizens who are not eligible to vote, but who nonetheless are active registered voters for Tuesday’s election. They said they were signed up by Culinary Local 226.

They speak and understand enough English to get by. But they don’t read English especially well. They say the Culinary official who registered them to vote didn’t tell them what they were signing and didn’t ask whether they were citizens. The immigrants said they trusted that the union official’s request was routine, thought nothing of it and went about their work.

Then the election drew closer. Then the Culinary canvassers started seeking them out and ordering them to go vote.

One of the immigrants was visited at home by a Culinary representative and said the operative made threats of deportation if no ballot was cast.

Why not? The only use that the immigrants are is as recruitment fodder for the organization. If they don’t participate, then they might as well be kicked out of the country. This isn’t about labor or rights, it’s about the power of the left.

Obama cannot win an election honestly. He can only win it the way Ahmadinejad and Putin won theirs. They know it and we know it and they know that we know it– which is what makes them so angry.

    Oh this totally figures. If Republicans were doing this the outcry would be HUGE in the mainstream press. But since it's the minions of the Golden One…

  • Questions

    The real issue is this: Why are immigrants, legally here or not, being solicited as voters? That is, regardless of who they intend to vote for, they shouldn't be voting. Is Daniel Greenfield arguing that if immigrants vote for Romney, and without coercion, somehow this is okay? Because if he is, he misses the boat. Organized labor, reprehensible as it is, should be diligent in seeking votes from citizens only.

    There is an issue here more central than Getting the Left. That issue is the gradual replacement of the historic American nation through blurring the lines between citizenship and non-citizenship. The right to vote certainly qualifies as one of those lines.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      They shouldn't be obviously.

    • Mary Sue

      because they can tell immigrants anything, particularly if said immigrants haven't got really good english, and they won't know whether they are being lied to. They are the perfect robots/patsies.

      Not to mention, there's this perception among the left that Hispanics coming from countries such as say, Guatemala or Honduras or Mexico are naturally of the Leftist/Communist bent, so of course they are going to court their votes.

      "Is Daniel Greenfield arguing that if immigrants vote for Romney, and without coercion, somehow this is okay?"

      I have a question about your reading comprehension: Where did you get that idea?

    These union thugs are no better than animals. Basically, dirt-bags. Why does the left continually exhibit a total lack of morals?

    • Mary Sue

      because the radical left these days want things that are by principle devoid of traditional morals.

  • Rwolf

    Any union proven involved in organized crime i.e. (organizing voter fraud) to get Obama elected—may be seized by U.S. Government under racketeering laws; and the Patriot Act or threatening Americans' National Security? Where is the FBI?

    • Mary Sue

      Right now the FBI is being run by idiots, apparently.

    Hmmmm, here is the full story from the author quoted by frontpagemag http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/how-many-noncitizens-… No where does it say who they were told to vote for, but the frontpagemag author, Daniel Greenfield deems it appropriate to make that part up. I wonder what other lies you have happily swallowed recently.

    The role of a reporter is to report the facts with evidence to back them up – if you want to make up stories, write a novel. Also, making the assumption that one or both parties are aware of what the union is doing to these immigrants is just plain ignorance – there's a little thing called investigative reporting which leads right back to the role of a reporter. Do your research before you go printing your piece.
