Union Behind D.C. Pro-Amnesty Protest Spends Nearly $700k in 4th Qtr. Lobbying

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent more than $683,000 lobbying Congress during the fourth-quarter. According to the Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives, much of this was spent lobbying on behalf of immigration reform, health care, and labor laws.

The $683,000 figure is more than double the amount the union spent on Congressional lobbying during the third quarter and represents how desperately the SEIU wishes Congress to act on its core issues -- comprehensive amnesty being one of the most important issues.
