Labor unions have historically been against immigration. In the United States, the immigration reform efforts of the late 19th and early 20th century were fueled by labor unions. This is because, back then, the unions actually looked after their members. They opposed an ever-increasing labor pool because it would eventually push their members into poverty.
Today the major labor unions are leftist. They’re cosy with the Democratic party and with globalism generally. They’ve betrayed the interests of their members. The answer is not to try to destroy labor unions. The answer is to found new ones. And having founded them, they must push the old ones onto the scrap heap.
Labor unions are the key to immigration reform. Without them, there won’t be an organized political force to cut immigration and keep it cut.
In the early to mid 20th century, globalists tried to raise immigration several times. It was the labor unions that stopped it. We are going to need that kind of force in the 21st century as well. Assuming Trump gets elected and cuts immigration (which I’m confident he will), that wont stop the business interests that want more immigration. They’ll keep pushing for it until it becomes law or a no man’s land. And it will only be a no man’s land if there’s a permanent political force opposed to it. Only labor unions can be that force.
