It should be no surprise that the next labor secretary pick of Thomas Perez is a radical nominee for this POTUS. Perez is best known serving in the Holder DOJ (as ADA for the Civil Rights Division) as the person responsible for going after Sheriff Joe Arpaio and right to work states like Texas and South Carolina who were attacked for their voter ID laws.
Perez was also involved in the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) in the 2008 presidential elections that occurred in Philadelphia. Perez was with the CRD of the DOJ at the time of the investigation and was reported to have been involved in the administration dropping the charges against the NBPP. Perez denied the fact that the Obama administration was involved in a political act of getting involved in the NBPP case, but according to a report by the federal court of Washington, DC under Judge Reggie Walton (who heard the case brought forward by a political watch dog group known as Judicial Watch), Judge Walton disagreed with the DOJ’s request for dropping the suit and found that instead the DOJ was indeed involved in the charges being dropped based on legal evidence presented in the case and considered the action of dropping those charges against the NBPP as nothing more than a political move once Obama was elected into office. Judge Walton’s response to the DOJ’s denial of being involved was the following:
The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision. Surely the public has an interest in documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision-making.
In sum, the Court concludes that three of the four fee entitlement factors weigh in favor of awarding fees to Judicial Watch. Therefore, Judicial Watch is both eligible and entitled to fees and costs, and the Court must now consider the reasonableness of Judicial Watch’s requested award.
Large Hispanic groups such as LARAZA and Labor Unions such as the SEIU, are more than happy about the nomination of Thomas Perez as the new Labor Secretary as they see this as a chance for not only promoting the future immigration reforms but also a push to have power reverted back to the Unions.
Perez (while a part of the DOJ) also served as a board member for an illegal alien advocacy group called Casa de Maryland. The group was funded with no only tax payer subsidized grants but also the radical George Soros. Perez has been quoted as calling citizens who want border enforcement as nothing more than “xenophobes”.
It should be no surprise that Obama’s agenda in bringing forth the likely nomination of Thomas Perez to further his leftist radical agenda. We need to not only expect the Labor Department to become closer to the forefront of importance in the current Obama administration but also more attacks in right to work states and the immigration reforms that will be coming forth this year. Hold on to your seats people because this will most certainly be a wild ride on the progressive roller coaster!
