US Chamber of Commerce Joins ACLU, AFL-CIO to Fight "No Match"

Not too surprising.

On September 7, 2007, the US Chamber of Commerce asked to intervene in a lawsuit initially filed on August 29 by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) and the Central Labor Council of Alameda County, along with other local labor movements (groups), challenging the legality of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) "no-match" regulation. The groups seek to permanently enjoin DHS from implementing or otherwise giving effect to the regulation. (CCH News)

It will be interesting to learn whether the Chamber is filing to join the ACLU and AFL-CIO (et al) in opposition, or whether the Chamber will join with DHS in attempting to provide a measure of national security AND order in the labor markets.

I have my bets placed.

Considering my gambling record this weekend, I'll put my last 3 dimes on that they're on the pro-invasion side even though that'll only get me 2 cents.
