This article was buried in the Dallas local paper. Illegals ...er...sorry...."migrants" being coached on how to obtain citizenship. The takeaway on this article:

Monica Lira Bravo, past president of the Dallas Hispanic Bar, said her organization wanted to get involved this election year.

“We wanted to help engage more of the community in the election process,” she said. “If they file for naturalization in February, they should receive an interview in the summer and, hopefully, be registered to vote for the November elections.”

And Mexico is footing the bill for this free forum and clinic. Shameful!!

Yeah, they aren't trying to change the demographics of our country nor to exercise their political influence in our country, are they? Our politicians should be ashamed of themselves for encouraging this and they will just be thrown under the bus once these so-called Hispanic advocacy/Immigrant Rights groups fulfill their anti-American agendas. Such fools we have in our government.

Anti-immigrant rhetoric by some presidential contenders may be having an effect not unforeseen by some Latino organizations — a renewed interest by immigrants in naturalization.

For the first time in recent years, the Mexican Consulate in Dallas will hold a free forum and clinic on how to become a U.S. citizen. It’s a topic that has come to the forefront for many immigrant advocacy groups, as well as local and national Latino organizations.

Migrants

Despicable article since it just says "immigrant"; NOT legal or illegal ones tho ONLY legal aliens are Ok to earn US citizenship.

That's what these groups do. They blur the lines between legal and illegal by calling them all just plain ole "immigrants". It is blatantly dishonest especially when they use phrases like "anti-immigrant rhetoric". We aren't anti-immigrant we are anti-illegal alien. Big difference! They do this to not call attention to the fact that the latter group violated our immigration laws to come here and to conger up sympathy for them by blending those two groups. I guess they think we are stupid.

Reported? As the article clearly states:

'Immigrants have become increasingly alarmed at some of the talk about massive deportations and feel compelled to do something, he said. “People are coming to the realization as to how important citizenship is in order to have the security and assurance that they’re not at risk,” he said.

If they are here legally, why would they feel at risk? Why the need to do something? Are they truly here legally or motivated to protect their illegal friends and relatives perhaps?
