Yesterday, the National Council of La Raza, MALDEF and other organizations held yet another news conference to try to silence the immigration policy debate in this country, reports the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). FAIR claims this outrageous behavior is part of a calculated strategy initiated after the defeat of the Senate's immigration amnesty bill last year. FAIR states these groups have three major goals:

1. Silence legitimate immigration policy debate by claiming efforts to advance interior immigration enforcement and state-local cooperation cause "hate crimes." They provide no proof whatsoever.

2. Manipulate the data regarding anti-Hispanic crime in this country in order to deflect from real immigration issues facing the American people.

3. Pressure the incoming Obama Administration first to halt all interior and worksite enforcement and then to endorse amnesty legislation and an increase in overall immigration.

"Let me be clear," said Dan Stein, President of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), "that we join with all responsible Americans in condemning the murder of Marcelo Lucero." Stein points out that La Raza and their allies maintain silence about ethnic and race-based gang violence and brutally violent crimes carried out by international drug cartels inside the United States.

If LaRaza's criminal minded, delusional stupidity wasn't so pathetic it would be laughable. Do they honestly think that our side does not have the stats to back up our side of this issue?
