Take action now:

League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)

LULAC is an illegal immigration-supporting group that was once patriotic but has since been radicalized. For an example, in May 2007, their national treasurer Jaime Martinez made these reconquista-style comments:

"This is our land and we're going to fight for just and humane comprehensive immigration reform!... ...We did not cross the border, the border crossed us."

Despite those comments, Martinez is still their treasurer, and LULAC continues being presented by the mainstream media as a mainstream group.

Then, in April 2009, their California chapter said that the U.S.-Mexico border might not be valid and asked for international arbitration in order to resolve the matter.

Among other things they support giving universal healthcare for illegal aliens and bringing back the Fairness Doctrine in order to silence those who oppose illegal immigration. They also oppose immigration raids and called for a moratorium until comprehensive immigration reform passes. In 2007, they were one of the groups working with Ted Kennedy on CIR.

They went as far as complaining about the Mexican government spreading propaganda inside the U.S., but only because Rob Allyn and not someone of the right ethnicity had been chosen to do the spreading. Per their then-president Hector Flores: "The Mexican government should have worked to provide this opportunity to a Hispanic business".

In addition to the MSM, elected officials take them seriously. During the 2008 elections, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama all spoke at their convention. A George W Bush visit in 2004 showed the fallacy of pandering.

They're linked to Tyson Foods and Mike Huckabee; see this and this allegation that they collaborated with Tyson Foods to help them obtain illegal alien workers.

A past executive director is Arnoldo Torres, Arnold Schwarzenegger's former Latino outreach director; see this for how he helped get California's governor to support illegal activity. Torres later turned on Arnold.

Alfonso Aguilar, head of the U.S. Office of Citizenship, is a member.

Their current president Rosa Rosales appeared with Peter Schey, Gil Cedillo, and a host of others at Migrant March II (link).

They were behind the since-disbanded, disreputable website weareracist.com. In response to questioning about the site, their current national executive director Brent Wilkes compared entering the U.S. illegally to getting a traffic ticket.

In Texas, they joined with business and other groups to fight state bills designed to reduce illegal immigration. In the Dallas area, their past president Hector Flores agitates to give rights to illegal aliens: link, link. Another former president, Joe May, pushed the Dallas Independent School District to hire illegal alien teachers. In the same city, their Dallas chapter president Jesse Diaz blamed America for causing illegal aliens to commit crimes.

Mike Huckabee defends Mexico consulate deal (businesses agreed to pay Mexico's bills; law violated?) - 10/31/07

Mike Huckabee is the new establishment favorite GOP presidential contender, and one reason is probably because he'd keep the cheap labor flowing.

Jerome Corsi asked him to defend his actions: A lingering controversy over the role former Arkansas Gov.
