Elections: The National Council of La Raza is promoting no-identification voting states to its followers. Might that have something to do with its advocacy of illegal immigration and the Democrats’ flagging electoral fortunes?
La Raza, as it’s known, is no ordinary nongovernmental organization in the “anti-poverty” racket. A group of lawyers and activists, it has long functioned as the illegal alien lobby in the U.S., advocating aggressively for the cause of open borders.
For its latest stunt, it has published on its website and social media a list of voting stations that don’t require IDs. Interesting, given a recent Harvard study showing that illegal immigrants have almost certainly swung close elections in recent years by canceling out U.S. citizens’ votes to ensure Democrat victories.
With Democrats trailing in the polls, it’s reasonable to conclude they’re seeking to swing another through the illegal alien vote on Tuesday.
And don’t think they wouldn’t try.
La Raza’s tentacles already reach deep into the White House. President Obama’s key domestic policy adviser, Celia Munoz, as well as Mari Carmen Aponte, ambassador to El Salvador, a springboard of the recent border surge, are former La Raza leaders.
More to the point, La Raza has unusual power from its role as a key conduit for federal “anti-poverty” funding.
In Los Angeles alone, black groups complained bitterly to the Los Angeles Times last spring about how $30 million in federal “anti-poverty” cash is being directed through a La Raza-linked group called the Youth Policy Institute to “promise zones” in neighborhoods dominated by illegals. The group’s director is a major Obama bundler.
So with Democratic fortunes fading on the eve of this year’s midterms, it’s more than a little unnerving to see La Raza pushing no-ID stations to its constituents.
The La Raza people say it’s because Republicans would suppress their votes. But the real risk is of illegals swinging elections. There’s nothing legal about effectively disenfranchising citizens in their own country by encouraging illegals to cancel out their votes.
