Pro-Amnesty Hunger Strike or Pro-Union Rally?

By Matt Vespa | December 4, 2013 | 11:46am EST

Yesterday, MRCTV's Dan Joseph decided to explore what was behind the "Fast 4 Families" hunger strike that's taking place on the National Mall.  On its face, it looks like a typical immigration reform tally.  Crosses are planted next to the tents housing the hunger strikers to symbolize the deaths of immigrants who tried to make it to the United States.  Yet, there was also a considerable amount of labor union merchandise, which exposed the "Fast 4 Families" rally as a union event.

Their wall of support featured SEIU, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, and President Obama.  It was an amalgam of left-wing support.  Additionally, it wasn't even an actual fast; protestors were doing it on a rolling basis.

Joseph was actually only able to interview one faster, while the majority of the people he spoke to were either members of the organized labor movement, or those who had previous affiliations with unions, such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

So, there's a reason why the president decided to stop by the encampment on December 2.
