La Raza Unida is a avocate for Latinos. Legal or not.
La Raza encourages it's "raza" to break immigration laws and promises them amnesty.

How does it do that? How can La Raza Unida advocate that immigration laws be broken if the Alien is already here?

They demand that there be no enforcement of any immigration laws. No deportation, no enforcement at the border. Once here they demand the illegal be rewarded and given all the rights of American citizenships - including obviously some government health insurance plan provided free to the illegal by the American taxpayer.

They already get food stamps, education and housing. Now they want more. Just like any child who gets things without earning them. Illegals are criminalized chidren who can't stop their primal lust for all that others work for. Sorry my little Chalupa...you've been tried, weighed and found unwanted.

Correction...On this thread on others refering to La Raza...I was under the impression posters were refering to the La Raza Unida-an advocacy group based in the Southwestren US that advocates for American citizens of hispanic desent. The LRU does not, for the most part, advocate on behalf of immigration. The LRU is an old Texas group that has worked in many instances for poor hispanic-americans in the court system.

The National Council of La Raza is a group that does advocate for immigration laws and immigrants. I must admit I dont have much knowledge of the NCLR. of If the two groups are somehow affiliated.

I myself may have crossed these two groups. I need to read more about the NCLR and their points and concerns.

Read the link the OP posted:

Pro-Illegal-Immigration 'La Raza' Blasts Obama Health Plan for Not Including Illegal Aliens | NumbersUSA - For Lower Immigration Levels

It's kind of obvious that Obama never excluded American citizens of any kind, certainly nothing in his plan would state that no chicanos or mexican-americans will be included, what La Raza wants is that any illegal stepping foot over the border be given a US government health plan.

I have a problem with these Hispanic advocacy groups advocating for amnesty for illegal aliens of which most are also Hispanics. If they weren't, these Hispanic adovocacy groups would have no interest in advocating amnesty for illegal aliens.

For that matter, I doubt that extremist groups like "La Raza" even have political power. Obama shouldn't worry about this.

Whether or not they can wield any power for some strange reason our politicians seem to think so. They are afraid of not getting the insignificant Hispanic vote. I guess all our politicans failed in math.
