The National Council of La Raza ("National Council of The Race"), a far-left, Ford Foundation-sponsored racial power group, will be holding its annual meeting at the Los Angeles Convention Center on July 8-11.
Some charter schools are more equal than others, and the LAUSD has determined that an alleged Chicano separatist school is abiding by its charter and is able to continue operation:
"They have followed the charter that they wrote originally," said Kevin Reed, chief legal counsel for the district.
The National Council of La Raza is considered a mainstream group despite their name literally - and in effect - meaning National Council of The Race. Their spokesmen have been featured on national TV shows and at any one time you can find dozens of news articles offering their viewpoint.
And, they're also a financial contributor to a Chicano separatist LAUSD charter school in Los Angeles.
In my discussion of Bush's big May 15 immigration speech, I took issue with this statement:
And temporary workers must return to their home country at the conclusion of their stay.
I maintain that those "guests" will never leave, and thus that Bush lied to the country.
However, here's Kaus on that statement:
Was it a Clintonian weasel (technically accurate in the zen-tautological sense that...
... a criminal... It's horrible."
National Council of La Raza ("National Council of The Race") does not oppose the May 1 action, but suggested that instead of taking the day off, marches take place after school or work.

By sending us millions of their citizens, Mexico has managed to obtain political power inside our country.
As shown by the recent marches, that political power can be mobilized - whether in fact by Mexico or just by partisans - into a show of physical force.

One of the myths propagated by open borders advocates and their enablers is that there's a monolithic "Hispanic Vote" and that the GOP needs immigration "reform" to get that vote.
First, take a look at these three articles: "Bush Didn't Win 44% of Hispanic Vote - The Smoking Exit Poll", "Hispanic Republicans a

Previously: "Vicente Fox's offer to make money off Katrina spurned" and Harry Reid wants amnesty for illegal aliens who are taking jobs that could go to Katrina victims.
National Council of La Raza has made quite an interesting admission. This shouldn't be shocking, but it does tell you where they're coming from:

Forty or so illegal aliens were recently arrested in a sting at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina.

I was considering writing something similar based on the comments I left on this thread (redstate.org/story/2005/1/15/94511/6703):

Lisa Friedman from the Long Beach Press-Telegram's National Bureau (they have a National Bureau?) takes issue with the statement that the 9/11 hijackers had a combined total of 63 driver's licenses. She repeatedly refers to it as false, an urban legend, etc. etc.
Here's some good news:
A record 157,000 illegal immigrants were removed from the United States during the past year as U.S. authorities stepped up efforts to track down those who may pose security risks, the government said Tuesday.
About half of those deported in the year ending Sept.
The WashTimes editorial "Undermining border security" first discusses their report "Illegals detained at border released onto U.S. streets". If you haven't yet read that, you should.

John Kerry is not completely insane. At least in the political sense:
Democrat John Kerry said he opposes state laws that give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, a position that puts him at odds with the Hispanic activists he is courting in the presidential race.
Immigrant advocates have been pushing for the laws, saying they help undocumented workers get around safely.
