    Default Obama teaming up with La Raza targeting Latinos...and illegal immigration

    Obama teaming up with La Raza to push $50,000 cash giveaways with Spanish ads targeting Latinos...and illegal immigrants

    Redistributing your tax dollars to get reelected. That's our Bam.
    President Obama’s favorite La Raza group has teamed up with a federal agency to promote one of the administration’s many government cash giveaways with Spanish ads encouraging Latinos—possibly illegal immigrants—to apply for free U.S. taxpayer dollars.

    The new campaign warns Hispanics that time is running out to get up to “$50,000 in help” from Uncle Sam to pay their mortgage, past due charges, taxes, insurance and even legal fees associated with their home. The money is being disbursed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of a billion-dollar Emergency Homeowner Loan Program (EHLP).
    The same HUD that is ran by Obama appointee, and ACORN goon, Shaun Donovan.
    In 2008 the agency revealed that some 5 million fraudulent or defaulted home mortgages were in the hands of illegal immigrants, who obtained the loans from banks that were pressured by the government to offer them. In fact, the agency in charge of preserving and promoting public confidence in the nation’s financial system, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), began pushing banks to offer services to illegal aliens years earlier and many still do today.

    It’s logical to assume that the involvement of the nation’s most powerful open borders group, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), in promoting government-funded mortgage aid is geared, at least in part, towards undocumented immigrants.

    The EHLP expired but recently got extended amid record-high unemployment to help people keep their homes. The NCLR, which has seen its federal funding skyrocket since one of its top officials got a job in Obama’s White House, wants to make sure Latinos get a piece of the pie. This week it launched a Spanish-language public service campaign to highlight the program’s “fast-approaching” deadline.

    “The biggest challenge now is ensuring that people know about this opportunity and take advantage of it during the short period that it is available,” according to the NCLR director who announced the campaign that will help Latinos “seize” an “opportunity.” In the ad HUD Assistant Secretary Mercedes Marquez alerts Hispanics of the imminent deadline to get their government cash and directs them to a Spanish HUD website that assures the money will be disbursed in a “fair and impartial manner.”

    Last year Marquez , a strong ally of the open borders movement, awarded an NCLR affiliate known as Chicanos Por la Causa nearly $40 million in grants to “stabilize neighborhoods and rebuild economies.” The money came from a Neighborhood Stabilization Program that has doled out $2 billion to community groups to combat the negative effects of “vacant and abandoned homes.”

    Just a few weeks ago a Judicial Watch investigation revealed that federal funding for the NCLR, which for years has raked in millions of taxpayer dollars, has catapulted since Obama hired its senior vice president (Cecilia Muñoz) to be his director of intergovernmental affairs. In fact, the government cash more than doubled the year Muñoz joined the White House, from $4.1 million to $11 million. Additionally, NCLR affiliates nationwide raked in tens of millions of government grant and recovery dollars last year thanks to the Muñoz factor.

    Obama: 'I need a dance partner' on immigration reform


    By Catherine E. Shoichet, CNN
    July 25, 2011 -- Updated 1925 GMT (0325 HKT)



    President Barack Obama addresses the National Council of La Raza annual conference Monday in Washington.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    • Obama: "Doing things on my own is tempting...but that's not how our system works"
    • The speech comes as Obama tries to drum up support from Latino voters
    • "There's a real sense of disappointment," one immigration reform advocate says
    • Columnist: In 2008, Obama made promises he couldn't keep

    (CNN) -- America's immigration system is broken, but only a bipartisan political movement can fix it, President Barack Obama said Monday.

    "The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting, I promise you, not just on immigration reform. But that's not how our system works. That's not how our democracy functions," Obama told the National Council of La Raza.

    Speaking at the organization's annual conference in Washington, Obama said passing immigration reform measures will require support from both sides of the aisle in Congress.

    "Let's be honest, I need a dance partner here, and the floor is empty," he said.

    Audience members greeted Obama with a standing ovation, and responded to his discussion of immigration reform by chanting, "Yes you can, yes you can."

    "I need you to keep building a movement for change outside of Washington, one they can't stop, one that's greater than this community," Obama told them.


    The speech comes at a critical time for Obama, who is trying to drum up support among Latino voters in the run-up to the 2012 election.

    "Feel free to keep the heat on me and the heat on Democrats. But here's the thing you should know, the Democrats and your president are with you, don't get confused about that," he said Monday.

    La Raza is the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, and its meetings regularly draw top political leaders.
    Its leader Monday praised Obama's efforts to help Latinos and lauded much of the president's work from the White House, particularly his appointment of Hilda Solis as labor secretary and Sonia Sotomayor as a Supreme Court justice.

    "While we may not always agree, Hispanics do have a voice in the administration, and the Latino community does have the president's ear," said Janet Murguia, president of La Raza, which translates literally as "The Race."

    But she went on to mention immigration, saying that "unfinished business" remains for Obama.

    "Virtually everyone in this room has been affected by our nation's broken immigration system and the record number of deportations," she said.

    Obama defended his administration's approach to deportations.

    "I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. That doesn't mean I don't know very well the real pain and heartbreak that deportations cause.

    I share your concerns and I understand them," he said Monday. "We work every day to make sure we are enforcing flawed laws in the most humane possible way."

    He also criticized Republicans for not supporting the DREAM Act, which would offer illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before they turned 16 the chance to become lawful permanent U.S. residents if they meet certain conditions.

    "They've walked away. ... The political winds have changed," he said.

    As a candidate in 2008, Obama told the National Council of La Raza that comprehensive immigration reform would be a "top priority" during his first year in office.

    But three years later -- with no concrete measure to change the nation's immigration system on the horizon -- some say Obama is losing his luster among Latino voters.

    "He's still very popular in the Latino community, but there's a real sense of disappointment and, for some, anger, that he promised big, but hasn't delivered," said Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, an organization that advocates immigration reform.

    In 2008, Obama made promises he couldn't keep, according to syndicated columnist Miguel Perez.

    "Unfortunately, people thought that he could, and so now he's boxed himself in, because Latinos do expect him to solve this problem," said Perez, who is also a journalism professor at Lehman College of the City University of New York.

    Obama included among his 2008 campaign stances a goal to "bring people out of the shadows," supporting "a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens."

    Exit polls found that 67% of Latino voters supported Obama in 2008.

    Activists said his stance on immigration was one reason behind that support, and that a large turnout among Latino voters was a deciding factor in swing states like Colorado, Florida, New Mexico and Nevada.

    The U.S. Hispanic population grew 43% in 10 years between 2000 and 2010 -- four times faster than the total U.S. population -- according to figures from the 2010 census. But currently, people of Hispanic origin make up only about 9% of the eligible electorate, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

    Polls have shown conflicting results about where Latino voters fall on immigration.

    An impreMedia-Latino Decisions poll last month said 51% of 500 people surveyed felt immigration reform and the DREAM Act were among the most important issues facing the Latino community.

    But a 2010 report from the Pew Hispanic Center said immigration ranked as the fifth most important issue for Latino registered voters and the fourth most important issue for all Latinos. Those surveyed ranked education, jobs and health care as their top issues of concern for that year's congressional campaign.

    Obama also discussed the nation's economy and education policies in his speech Monday.

    It is the article I linked the image from, but I did not link the cnn article, if only because my thing was to show the full La Raza banner not seen in the first article.
