Last week, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann(R-MN) called for Congress to reconvene so it could take out parts of the recent Freddie Mac bailout that give $500 million in unmarked grants to far-Left “community development” groups, such as the National Council of La Raza.

Bachmann’s stand is symbolic but admirable. The Treason Lobby’s tentacles are reaching out to seize the American taxpayer.

When the bailout bill was passed at the end of July, there was little public comment on the money going to La Raza. However, it’s not the first time they’ve tried this stunt. In May, Congressman Barney Frank earmarked $15 million to La Raza in his Housing Stabilization and Homeownership Retention Act of 2008. The bill was killed—but a number of people on the Hill have told me that they expect La Raza to end up with even more money in the act that subsequently passed.

To put this grant in perspective: even $15 million dollars is greater than the total assets of the three biggest immigration control groups—Numbers USA, The Center for Immigration Studies, and The Federation for American Immigration Reform—combined.

It’s not as if La Raza needs taxpayer money. It currently has over $100 million dollars in assets, along with its Raza Development Fund, their “community development lending arm” that has another 53 million. This is before they got their housing bailout money, along with $1.3 million dollars it got from HUD earlier this year, and $16 million dollars that The Wachovia Foundation, associated with the Wachovia Corporation bank, pledged to them in June.

And what the heck are they doing with all that green, may I ask? Do they not have to account for where the money goes?

And this is what the so called advocates for illegals are getting out of the deal......cash, power and influence. They don't give a rats azz for the illegal himself...if they did, that money would be going to free English lessons, GED classes and money to help clean up the neighborhoods and keep the anchors on the right track. Instead, the money goes where?
La Raza prays that amnesty is never granted....if it were, who would they then 'champion' so profitably?

And shame on the dems and reps who are pushing this bs through.....they want the potential votes laraza promises it can deliver to them. Disgusting and yet another reason that term limits need to be implemented and also a third party needs to become viable.

Probably dumping the vast majority of it into very lucrative individual offshore accounts. They sure as hell aren't investing any of it in educating or empowering any of the illegal alien peasants that they are being paid to represent.

As Benicar has stated time and again, amnesty will never be granted as it would not be beneficial to any of them behind the curtain in the land of Oz.

No apology is necessary. If my screen hasn't melted from my unadulterated rage, it never will. These putrid slave traders are only concerned with ensuring the continuation of illegal immigration.

It’s not surprising that they receive such lucrative funding, given their exemplary performance in facilitating cheap labor sheeple for the corporate elite. They are all pond scum.

"Occasionally I get a call from supporters who suggest we organize a boycott of different companies that contribute to La Raza. The name I hear most is State Farm Insurance.

I tell them that as much I’d love to boycott them, right now there is pretty much nowhere to go. I looked up the sponsors La Raza’s last annual conference—there were over 200 of them—and just about every major insurance company was there including, Aetna, Nationwide, Geico, Sharp Healthcare, and Prudential! In addition there were over two dozen government and military agencies; the Republican Party (!); and, most shockingly, a number of charities. The March of Dimes, Foundation for the Advancement in Cancer Research, National Eye Institute, and Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and Paralysis Resource Center all were sponsors of the conference.

They truly are pond scum. It's mind numbing that a racist organization such as this one has succeeded in becoming "legitimate".
