The allegations are no surprise. I have always believed that some of these so-called Hispanic advocacy groups are nothing but illegal alien peddlers/profiteers. Yet, they are always portrayed as benevolent humanitarians. I have a feeling this is only the tip of the iceberg.

LAS VEGAS - Police served warrants for nine felony counts at the office of the League of United Latin American Citizens or LULAC. The warrants are for nine felony counts related to theft and burglary. Police also raided the home of the group's Nevada director Rene Orozco.

Police served the warrants over allegations Orozco took money from clients who hired him to aid them with citizenship and criminal issues. But, the victims say Orozco pocketed the money without providing any aid. Many of the victims are undocumented immigrants.

Say it isn't so! An advocate for the "hispanic community" actually stealing from illegal aliens? How very very bizarre!

Maybe they will wake up and realize no one is "fighting for their best interest" and that they are only being used as a political tool for money grubbing losers looking to further their political career, yet tax payers are paving their way. Illegal immigrants are certainly turning into a pathetically ignorant (not realizing) lot.

Humanitarian groups. Ya, sure. So long as the "group" is Hispanic. If the current waves of millions of Illegal Aliens were from Haiti you wouldn't see one of these special interest groups.

There is this thing in this country called Due Process. Even though The Nevada Director is already convicted in the court of public opinion, I'll follow the actual legal procedings...Since those are the ones that actually mater.

And if the Director committed criminal acts against anyone, then he is not above the law and should recieve just punishment.

Yes, and there is also something referred to as “evidence.” Apparently they had enough to obtain a warrant.

Now raid the other 699 nationwide.
I wouldn't be surprised if the smugglers that bring illegals in for K's per head are affiliated.

If he's even a citizen of the US. If he's a foreign citizen then he needs the due process that should be given to foreigners coming here to break many laws. If he's a dual citizen with another country, that's obviously where his allegience lies.

No joke.

And; quite frankly; I would have much more heartburn deporting illegal aliens from Haiti since their nation is essentially nonfunctional since their earthquake.

I decide to take a look at the LULAC website to see if they included this item in their "news" section. Surprise, surprise - no mention! And so I decided to search their site for "Rene Orozco" - I got one hit, indicating the page was last updated March 4 2010 (the day after this story broke) and here's the page:

LULAC: National Board of Directors

If you'll observe, Rene Orozco no longer appears on this page of their website, but apparently is still coming up in their search engine. Looks like damage control to me - I bet the next thing you'll hear is their vehement denial that Orozco ever represented LULAC.

Can't wait till ripoffreport.com's website finishes updating, so I can read the article posted back on January 23rd - it mentions Rene and LULAC specifically.
