Mayor Moonbeam and the Rainbow City Council’s New Piece of Art: Cesar Chavez

Hanging in the Mayor’s office is this new portrait of Cesar Chavez with ‘the children.’ Not sure why he’s featured with children because, after all, Chavez was a union organizer for ADULTS, but, well, anyway.
Remember, too, that Chavez, as a union organizer, was deeply opposed to importing new workers to the US–especially illegal ones.
This, of course, makes Mayor Moonbeam pretty dumb looking when he seeks to make political hay with the Latino community by trying and failing to rename a street for Chavez, but at the same time sponsoring a day labor site for illegal aliens.

The day labor site is expected to kick off in early 2008. Portland taxpyaers will pony up an INITIAL $200,000.00 to start the dating service for illegal aliens and the employers who ILLEGALLY hire them. Here’s a previous post by those in favor.

The other issue is, of course, how Portland says the day labor center won’t be solely for illegal aliens; acknowledging that illegals will use it but suggesting legal citizens will use it. Why would legal citizens need to use a day labor site when there are dozens of LEGAL temporary agencies in Portland? Why would the city replicate a service that is already available for legal workers, citizens, and taxpayers when it’s already available?
Yes, the answer is because it will be exclusively for ILLEGAL ALIENS and the employers who ILLEGALLY EMPLOY them.
