Immigration bill laden with pork for La Raza


The purpose of the proposed immigration bill currently in Congress is to provide a “path to citizenship” for the 12 million illegal immigrants currently in the U.S. The “path” will come at a high price, with strict rules immigrants must follow in order to complete the process to become a U.S. citizen.

But hidden deep within the immigration bill are  millions of-dollars in slush funds for left-wing nonprofit groups, ostensibly to provide services to the illegal immigrants, according to Investors Business Daily. “Once enacted, the slush funds would total almost $300 million over three years and grow over time,” Investors Business Daily reported.

“Foremost among such groups is the National Council of La Razz, meaning “the race,” or alternatively, “the people,” a group that opposes current U.S. immigration laws, defends illegals, and long promoted amnesty measures,” IBD said. It’s also an organization with significant leverage at the Obama White House and its former senior executive helped draft the Senate bill.

Closely tied with La Raza is the radical group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has infiltrated American universities and colleges since the 1960s.

And Los Angeles has been ground-zero for the La Raza experiment.

Immigrants want jobs, but labor unions want new members, and the leftist militants now leading the movement want troops who can really “shut things down” to advance their class-struggle visions. We are seeing this currently with the struggle in the ranks of the United Farm Workers in Salinas.

La Raza already receives significant federal grants and contracts of more than $10 million per year. IBD said La Raza would be at the head of the line to receive new funding.

Another allied group, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, says it receives no federal money but would likely qualify for subsidies under this legislation, IBD reported.

Obama director of domestic policy Cecilia Munoz, the leading presidential staffer on immigration issues, was in charge of overseeing a team of executive branch bill-drafters, guiding the legislative process. But Munoz is closely tied to La Raza.

La Raza 

Before joining the White House, Ms. Munoz was a senior policy analyst at La Raza. Munoz, a former La Raza official, has been pushing through legislation that advances the La Raza program and could potentially fill its coffers. There is no more blatant conflict of interest than this.

IBD reported that La Raza and Munoz were also involved in the last big amnesty go-round, in 1986, which supposedly traded legalization of illegals (then about 3 million) for tougher new enforcement.

One section creates a “New Immigrant Council,” including representatives of nonprofits “with legal and advocacy experience working with immigrant communities,” to “introduce and integrate” new immigrants “into the state.” The bill authorizes an additional $100 million — $20 million a year for five years — to finance these efforts. Thus a second slush fund is created.

Read the whole story here. Then call your Congressman or woman and shout – even if they are members of La Raza or MEChA, as so many in the California Latino Caucus are or have been.

    Lots of room Inland for new neighbors…these people work hard. We need workers not flake CWD urban burnouts always moaning about their sorry lives in the greatest state in America.

    Spent two weeks in New Mexico…cheap gas but the whole state looks like a zoning nightmare ala trah heap motif! It is extremely hot in summer. Property in the few decent areas is not affordable….write this state off!

    BTW Uhaul…..

    Brickbat throwing aside for the moment……what part of New Mexico did you visit? I had heard that southern and eastern New Mexico were S-holes, but Albuquerque to Santa Fe region was reasonably nice. (I drove thru on I-40 a couple times and also went from Santa Fe up to Durango, but it was a long time ago).
