Yerushalayim & the Orthodox Union

I finally had a chance to see the presentation by the OU's Executive Vice President, Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hirsch Weinreb for Yom Yerushalayim. I actually enjoyed the speech, where is compared Yerushalayim and Sodom.

However, i am a bit intrigued by his discussion of Yerushalayim as a place of Chesed and Mishpat. Does this mean that the OU will now attempt to encourage Israel to maintain justice and chesed in Yerushalayim?
So how does this affect their attitude towards the foreign workers and their children who live under the radar screen, being treated without mishpat or chesed?
Or how about the non-settlers in Israel who are forced to live with a disproportionate amount of aid and support going to legal and illegal settlements?
