NALEO, LULAC, SEIU, Univision: ending raids for census not enough, immigration "reform" needed
Following up on her report of yesterday, Hope Yen of the Associated Press informs us that a group of illegal immigration-supporting Hispanic groups - including one with a direct albeit minor link to the Mexican government (NALEO) and one whose treasurer is an extremist (LULAC) - want their race-based power and they want it now (link):
Saying traditional census outreach will not be enough, Hispanic groups on Wednesday urged the Obama administration to follow through now on its pledge to pass immigration reform or risk an undercount of millions of people.
The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, Univision Inc., the League of United Latin American Citizens and SEIU (Service Employees International Union) announced a grassroots campaign that would supplement Census Bureau efforts to reach the traditionally hard to count Hispanic community. An estimated 1 million Hispanics, or about 3 percent of the U.S. population, were missed in 2000.
"Make no mistake about it: The census cannot succeed if Latinos are not fully counted," said Arturo Vargas, executive director of NALEO, noting that Hispanics make up half of the nation's percentage growth. "We are the future of the United States."

The future is tainted with obesity, illiteracy and crime of the invaders. This is the future of this country--a third world cesspool resembling mexico. We Americans had better stand up to this nonsense before it is too late.

About the only thing they have going for them is numbers. Academically they are below par with respect to their population and socially they are destroying their futures with a high teenage pregnancy rate. These are our future leaders.
