HHS Sued for Records Detailing Grant to the National Council of La Raza
I’ve often referred to the “Chicago Way,” wherein politicians pay off special interests with taxpayer monies and favors in exchange for political support. And ever since Chicago’s own Barack Obama took office, we have seen an explosion in this type of corrupt arrangement.
Whether we’re talking about Obamacare favors for union bosses or illegal payments to ACORN and its spinoffs, the Obama administration knows how to take care of its “friends,” and that includes the crazies from “La Raza.”
On July 18, 2012, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seeking access to records detailing taxpayer-funded grants provided by the Centers for Disease Control to the National Council of La Raza (The National Council of “The Race”)......
The fact that the National Council of La Raza openly advocates for illegal alien sanctuary policies, such as drivers’ licenses and discounted tuition for illegal aliens, is no secret. But what many people do not realize is that the organization has also been linked to the Mexican reconquista movement, which seeks to conquer the American Southwest and return it to Mexico.
Now, you won’t read about these ties on the NCLR website. The organization works very hard to distance itself from radical “Chicano” organizations so it can maintain powerful friends in both political parties.
But a few years ago, Judicial Watch investigated a radical Mexican separatist school in Los Angeles, California, called Academia Semillas Del Pueblo. You can read our report here And who did we find pumping good money after bad into this failing school? The National Council of La Raza, and another radical organization called M.E.Ch.A., or Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlán. (Taxpayers also paid the tab to the tune of $1.6 million per year.)

How disturbing. It'd be like granting grants to the KKK? An openly biased, racist, and inflammatory organization like LaRaza getting any kind of money from the Government for any purpose is outrageous.
