NCLR is a known racist hate group that wants nothing more than blanket amnesty for millions of illegals all over the country, of course their supporters are going to claim that immigration is their top concern.

It speaks volumes that they actually consider amnesty for illegal aliens more important than jobs and the economy.

Ethnocentricism trumps all, I guess.

Their agenda is to increase their ethnic numbers in this country so that they can take political, cultural and numerical control of this country. Yeah, "we're" the racists? If the situation were reversed in Mexico they'd be screaming to high heavens to protect their country, their citizens and their cultural identity.

Who needs jobs with all the Medicaid, college financial aid, food stamps, WIC and housing assistance? Only some come to work those hard jobs for little pay. Many come for the easy life our government hands them.

The sad fact is, they can work back home but they will live much higher on the hog if they either work or live off welfare handouts here. Notice how La Raza also has no worries about affordable health care, health insurance rates and all that other stuff hard working Americans are very concerned over.

It is increasingly obvious that your concerns are regarding the welfare system as a whole. Not one of these complaints can realistically be said to not apply to all Americans (though, lol, pretty sure the welfare queens you concern yourself with aren't aiming at college financial aid).

Notice how they have no worries about health care? How are you "noticing" that, exactly? Just because it's not mentioned in this one article?

Considering that NCLR is the National Council of La Raza, I'd say that (illegal) immigration is their top concern.

You have still not adequately explained why we need to import millions, unlimited numbers of impoverished people when unemployment and welfare rates of American citizens is so very high.

With illegal immigration, there is no employer sponsor, no guarantee of a decent paying job, no job related benefits like health insurance.

With the economy the way it is, the last thing we need are all these poor people pouring over the border to get in on what few jobs there are or needing Medicaid for their health plans.
