I wouldn't hazard a guess... seen too many reruns of "Network," and they are madder the H!ll? You'd think they'd like the Larger Party of Gimmes...
Well, that is the stated goal of LULAC. For those who haven't read the full article, (I'll source below), here is an excerpt:
While the original LULAC emphasized ''Mexican-Americans'' were ''Americans'' sharing the same national interests as other ''Americans,'' today LULAC's goals center on ''group entitlements'' as can be seen in The 1998 LULAC Legislative Platform available on its website (www.lulac.org).
Among its objectives expansion of American empowerment and enterprise zones along the U.S.-Mexican border; incentives for ''Hispanic'' small businesses; retention of affirmative action hiring policies ''to ensure diversity in all workplaces''; preventing California Proposition 209 from being enforced; increasing the number of ''Hispanic Serving Institutions'' and according them ''as many of the same benefits provided to Historically Black Colleges and Universities''; increasing the number of ''Hispanics'' at all levels of the federal government and in the civil service, especially at ''key positions in the State Department, the Foreign Service and the United Nations''; confirmation of 60 ''Hispanic'' judges; appointing a ''Hispanic'' as the next Supreme Court justice; employing sampling for the 2000 census; having the Census Bureau include the population on the island of Puerto Rico in the total ''Hispanic'' population for the United States; increasing the number of ''Hispanic oriented programming in TV and print'' as well as having the major media companies increase the number of ''Hispanics'' employed in ''creative positions.''

Here's a quote from The Conclusion:
So with the encouragement of the U.S. government and with the financial support of major U.S. corporations and foundations, LULAC, MALDEF, MEChA/MEXA, and La Raza, pillars of the radical ''Hispanic'' lobby, successfully and aggressively promote hatred of the history, identity, culture, language, and laws of the United States.
