From a web article:

Tens of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars soon could be flowing into the National Council of La Raza, an organization that advocates for civil rights for Hispanics and has connections to groups that advocate the separation of several southwestern states from the rest of the nation.

The proposal has been made by U.S. Rep. Ruben Hinojosa, and it would give the organization that describes itself as "the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States – [working] to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans" $5 million annually starting in 2008, with the funding to double the next year and then continue at that level "for each fiscal year thereafter."

As WND reported earlier, La Raza was condemned last year by Rep. Charles Norwood, R-Ga., as a radical "pro-illegal immigration lobbying organization that supports racist groups calling for the secession of the western United States as a Hispanic-only homeland."

Norwood has called on La Raza to renounce its support of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan – which sees "The Race" as part of an ethnic group that one day will reclaim Aztlan, the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs. In Chicano folklore, Aztlan includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas.

The new plan, H.R. 1999, was introduced in April and already has been referred to a committee for action.

I never knew about La Raza prior to the illegal immigration rallies, and honestly am not sure of the organization's mission. While I would support an organization to represent our country's Hispanic community, I take issue with their apparent detest for the United States. How is it beneficial for us to provide funding to a group that wants to break apart the country?!?!

:sigh:

((BTW, my in-laws are Hispanic, so don't trump me with the racist card))

La Raza local affiliates are some of our best community partners for CRA purposes, so it is a mixed bag

La Raza = Hispanic KKK

Consider, for a moment, those organizations that are the dominant voices on the issue of “immigrant rights” in America today. Without exception, they promote the idea that shared victim status (as emblemized by skin color and class) far outranks patriotism as a justification for solidarity of purpose. Portraying American society as inherently unjust, these purported guardians of the downtrodden actively encourage illegals to view themselves as combatants in a noble, desperate struggle to win the rights and privileges they are allegedly being denied.

The largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), opposes the REAL ID Act requiring that all driver’s license and photo ID applicants be able to verify that they are legal U.S. residents. It opposes allowing state and local law-enforcement authorities to enforce federal immigration laws. It opposed the “Secure Fence Act of 2006” which authorized 700 miles of new border fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. Raul Yzaguirre, who was President of NCLR from 1974 to 2004, believes that illegal aliens are best described as “hardworking people who are paying taxes, who are helping this economy.” He opposes the imposition of sanctions against employers who hire illegal immigrants, and in fact rejects the very use of the term “illegal.” Such attitudes proved to be of great benefit to Yzaguirre’s career. On April 12, 2007, Hillary Rodham Clinton named him to co-chair her presidential campaign and to direct her outreach efforts to Hispanic voters.

The thing is they do not represent the majority of Hispanic thinking per se (old school America Hispanic citizens are probably some of the more patriotic America their are) ...but do have sway with the younger and illegals... in the same way a Jackson, Sharpton or Farrakhan does with a portion of the greater black community

They play the race baiter/race traitor game as well as any one to be held up as THE leader's of the "Hispanic" community and try to dictate a party line a "loyal Hispanic" is to follow or be ostracized as a race traitor "coconut" (Hispanic "Tom/Oreo cookie")

Bottom line these are racist and highly anti America groups that are trying to indoctrinate and co-opt Hispanic to their agenda in the same way neo Nazi's or the KKK try to co-opt young whites in to skinheads groups

Demand a border fence! Build it NOW!! Beef up the border patrol and close our borders!
