In many cases the reason they get food stamps is because they have U.S. born children.

Education - The Supreme Court decision Plyler v. Doe ensures that this will continue to be the case

Housing - many times it is provided by the private sector (out of state absentee landlord apartments in many cities house illegal immigrants) - Or a legal relative or friend provides the housing

The Hispanic vote does not equal the myriad of "Raza" groups in California.

If you want a wacky organization with real political influence, think about Scientology.

The “La Raza” referenced in the OP is the NCLR, which not only receives millions annually in federal funding, but countless millions more from big business. After all, they are peddling illegal aliens on behalf of the corporate elite. They are not considered an extremist group by our government; hence, their funding. They also had a seat at the table during immigration reform negotiations.

They freely admit their advocacy on behalf of Hispanic illegal aliens. According to them, no distinction should be made between Hispanic citizens and Hispanic illegals.

So, what agencies/departments of the federal government found NCLR? What purposes do the financing have? What do the federal agencies expect NCLR to do?

Founded in 1968, NCLR is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, tax-exempt organization headquartered in Washington, DC. NCLR serves all Hispanic subgroups in all regions of the country and has operations in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Antonio, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
For more information, please visit, National Council of La Raza.

Some critics have implied that federal funding earmarked to NCLR for housing and community development financing has been used, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, to advance our public policy efforts on immigration. This is simply untrue.

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.
If every illegal immigrant from Haiti living in Florida were rounded up and deported back to Haiti, I bet there would be little to no backlash from the National Council Of La Raza. After all they only look out for their own race, which makes them extremely racist.

Dear Sir,

Advocacy groups of peoples of many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds is a long time tradition in many parts of the world gong back generations.

In this country we also have a long tradition of racial advocacy groups like the NAACP. Thurgood Mashall, a lawyer for the NAACP, argued for civil rights of Black folk before the Supreme Court of the US. Marshall was later appointed to a seat on the Supreme Court.

LULAC, the Leauge of Latin America Citizens had Gus Garcia as legal counsel in 1954 when LULAC filed suit for Mexican American civil rights in Texas before the US Supreme Court.

There are groups that adovate for their race or kind wthout being racist.
Of course all races have their militant, radical, and fringe groups also.
So its best not to lump all groups in the same pile.

You are probably correct. Although what would make la raza gag would be dealing with illegals from the Dominican Republic-------who are both Black and Hispanic.

Do you have a link? I didn’t realize Gus Garcia argued the case of Plyler v. Doe. I believe you are confusing MALDEF with the scandal-ridden LULAC.

There’s a HUGE difference between advocating for equal rights for black “citizens” and advocating for amnesty for illegal aliens.

MALDEF has achieved significant legal victories with the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case, Plyler v. Doe. The Court struck down a Texas law that allowed districts to charge tuition to children of undocumented immigrant parents. MALDEF’s victory opened school doors to all students equally.

The problem is that they will still use the healthcare system...just no one will get paid for their work.

The problem is EMTALA.
