Rep. Ruben Hinojosa wants millions for the National Council of La Raza
U.S. Rep. Ruben Hinojosa (D-TX) wants the feds to underwrite the National Council of La Raza ("The Race") to the tune of $5 million per year for 2008. In 2009, that would double, with the National Council of The Race receiving $10 million from the federal government thereafter. They already receive $5 million per year from the Feds, and Harry Reid might have been involved in that.
The NCLR is a considered-mainstream group that actually works to support illegal immigration and which has links to and funds extremists.
The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development shall, to the extent amounts are made available pursuant to subsection (b), make a grant to the National Council of La Raza for the purpose of providing technical and financial assistance to local non-profit organizations to undertake community development and affordable housing projects and programs serving low- and moderate-income households, particularly through organizations located in neighborhoods with substantial populations of income-disadvantaged households of Hispanic origin.
Needless to say, this will help consolidate La Raza's power, as well as those linked to them: the Democratic Party. It's also open-ended, allowing them to "conduct such other activities as may be determined by the Secretary and the National Council of La Raza."
