Take action now:

Cecilia Munoz

The National Council of La Raza has someone on the inside: their former senior vice president, Cecilia Munoz, was named Barack Obama's White House director of intergovernmental affairs early in his administration.

Then, in January 2012, she was named to head the Domestic Policy Council. Per The Hill, that makes her Obama's "senior adviser on domestic affairs that fall outside the strict purview of the National Economic Council."

To understand her agenda, see the NCLR link above.

To see Munoz' passive-aggressive victimization shtick, see the video linked from here.

Per her Whitehouse biography (see the links):

Ms. Muñoz is the former Chair of the Board of Center for Community Change, and served on the U.S. Programs Board of the Open Society Institute (George Soros) and the Board of Directors of the Atlantic Philanthropies and the National Immigration Forum. In June 2000, she was awarded a MacArthur Foundation fellowship in recognition of her work on immigration and civil rights.

Immigrant advocates have been pushing for the laws, saying they help undocumented workers get around safely.
