"But SEIU has seen hundreds of members lose their jobs after I-9 audits: According to the union, 1,200 SEIU janitors in Minneapolis were fired following an I-9 audit last December, and just this week, 250 SEIU janitors in Minneapolis were fired after an I-9 audit, adding to 500 in the area who were fired from Chipotle after the company was examined by the feds."

== now what makes this epic is ... SEIU members pay dues, SEIU uses that money to fund political operations... direct campaign donations. Sounds like foreign money going to influence elections to me.

OMG THE BOOGEY MAN!

That's pretty hipocritical considering that the Democrats tried to jump all over the Chamber of Commerce for refusing to release the list of donors (because it MIGHT include foreign donors).
