Hispanic civil rights

Various Hispanic leaders have attempted to claim that their goals are comparable to the U.S. Civil Rights movement. See this appearance by Janet Murguia for an example. The huge differences should be obvious, including the fact that most of those "Latino civil rights leaders" are more concerned with giving illegal aliens rights to which they are not entitled.

2006: Gil Cedillo supports illegal immigration boycott, shills for cheap labor employers - 09/18/11

The video below has a 2006 speech from California state Assemblyman Gil Cedillo in support of a resolution supporting the "Great American Boycott" immigration march. The speech was discussed here five years ago, but since it appears to have been deleted from its original location at democrats.sen.ca.gov I uploaded my cached copy. 1. On the video, Cedillo supports comprehensive immigration reform...

Obama admits problems caused by mass immigration; panders to illegal aliens; takes foreign citizens' side; opposes non-criminal deportations - 03/29/11

Barack Obama spoke at Bell Multicultural High School in Washington DC yesterday at a townhall conducted in Spanish for the Univision network. The host was anchor Jorge Ramos, a U.S. resident who's a Mexican citizen, a Mexican partisan, and a strong supporter of illegal immigration. And, of course, Obama was mostly aligned with him. After admitting the major problems caused by massive immigration...

Somos America, Alfredo Gutierrez turn backs on Arizona, lead boycott movement - 05/01/10

The incorrectly-named group Somos America and former Arizona state senator Alfredo Gutierrez are trying to form an umbrella group to push for a boycott of that state due to the new immigration law (link): If it hurts Latinos who live in the state, that's a price they're willing to pay, said former state Sen. Alfredo Gutierrez who is chairing the campaign. At a news conference Friday, Gutierrez...

Sen. Robert Menendez plays race card, misleads; NJ Star-Ledger editors sit there like potted plants - 04/01/10

The attached video (also here, report here) shows Senator Bob Menendez misleading about immigration matters and playing the race card. As can be seen at the last link, neither of those are news. The main reason this is here is because it provides a video illustration of how the mainstream media isn't doing their job. Instead of interrupting him and acting like real journalists, the members of...

The National Council of La Raza is conducting "Reflection and Action: A National Call-In for Immigration Reform" (nclr.org/content/news/detail/56918): From house call-in parties to community center and church gatherings, the goal is for participants to come together between April 27 and May 1 to reflect on immigration reform and call their members of Congress to continue the push for immigration...

Clarissa Martinez/NCLR's offensive, misleading pro-illegal immigration editorial - 02/07/09

... the "better qualified" bit. See hispanic civil rights for that part. As for the last sentence, if she'd written "Ward Connerly" that would have just been very inaccurate; the use of Duke is despicable. ...Coinciding with the rise in vitriol in the immigration debate, FBI statistics show a nearly 40% increase in hate crimes committed against Latinos between 2003 and 2008. The Southern Poverty Law...

Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon uses MLK speech to promote trackable 'work visas' - 01/21/08

Intellectually dishonest illegal immigration supporter Janet Murguia of the NCLR isn't alone in trying to tie illegal immigration in to the Civil Rights movement. Another instance occurred in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday at the Martin Luther King Jr. "Living the Dream" awards breakfast, featuring appearances by governor Janet Napolitano and Phil Gordon, mayor of Phoenix. News report here, and from...

The video was shot on an unknown...
