La Raza Group Teams Up With Feds To Push Govt. Aid In Spanish
Judicial Watch ^ | July 8, 2011

Posted on 07/08/2011 11:45:51 AM PDT by jazusamo

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).

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.

I am SO VERY SICK OF THIS. EVERYTHING is translated into Spanish. EVERYTHING. It is so pathetic because it assumes all Latinos are as stupid as a rock. No woman in Target could EVER figure out that the section marked COSMETICS is the same as COSMETICAS? It has to be labeled in both languages?? It is getting thoroughly ridiculous.

I have lived in two other lands with different languages and learned by living, and became fluent in both languages, as an adult. ARE LATINOS TOO STUPID TO EVEN TRY???? This pandering is condescending, and the Hispanics seem to be lazy enough to accept the inherent insult. They sure are not complaining that an ad for corn shows a freaking PHOTO of the corn but says MAIS because no one could EVER figure out what it was without that Spanish word. Bite me.

Could it be that Mexicans of today can’t learn english? Part of my family came from Mexico many years ago. At that time, they all learned english. Maybe today they aren’t smart enough?

“Could it be that Mexicans of today can’t learn english?”

Grandpa got here in the 1930s. He spoke French, Yiddish, and bad Hebrew. In three months, he spoke English.

I moved here to be with my wife 3 years ago, faltering English from school and late nights watching Baywatch.

Read a dictionary and learned 20 words every day. Still do.

I think I do OK. Certainly better than Mexicans who have been here for years.

Pathetic.

Well said...There is no reason for our government to announce verbally or writing in any foreign language.

What really ticks me off is the printing of ballots in Spanish in some areas. To attain US citizenship a person has to speak and read English and only citizens can legally vote. Printing ballots in a foreign language is inviting voter fraud.

They could learn. But why bother when every business and government entity in this country is kowtowing to them?

ENGLISH must be made the official language of the US. Not only would “residents” need to learn the language to recieve aid(and you can bet your bottom dollar that they would), but the millions of dollars spent on mandated translation services at health facilities and government agencies could be saved.

What an interesting number.

Even assuming an average family size of 4 people - not typically true for multi-family Mexican illegal alien households - that means 20 million people.

And these are just the people brazen enough to buy homes....used to be you had to prove citizenship, or disclose nationality, on the very good theory that the property of the U.S. belongs to the citizens or those they choose to share the land with.

So all the people here razzing us for pointing out that illegals in the U.S. are far higher then the ridiculous 11 million number...note that the government just admitted it.

Either that, or there's a bunch of DINKII's (Double Income No Kids Illegal Immigrants) living large in the American Southwest.

Spot on, that.

I believe I had heard that some of the foreclosures were investment properties (who would have believed that 20 years ago?) but by and large these are single family dwellings and the admission does put the lie to the 12 million number.

I don’t know if you remember the discussion 5 or 6 years ago, but even then FReepers on this topic were warning of a mortgage bust. Over the objections of the FBI, the Congress passed legislation allowing ‘people’ to use a Tax ID Number (TIN) in lieu of an SSAN to obtain a loan. At that point, some of our more prescient members saw the handwriting on the wall.

"I have lived in two other lands with different languages and learned by living, and became fluent in both languages, as an adult. ARE LATINOS TOO STUPID TO EVEN TRY????"

No sir, they are NOT too stupid.

What they're trying to do is "latino-ize" the U.S., to whatever degree possible. They do not want to assimilate with Americans, they want their own culture, society, language and even borders within the U.S., (states such as Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, etc, which they believe are rightfully theirs anyway).

Add to that the fact that Latinos, (with some notable exceptions), are the laziest people on earth, with their "third world" mentality that their nations do not need to be exceptional, their customary daily "siestas", their laisserfaire attitude, and their criminal mentality, (breaking into the U.S. in the tens of millions under the cover of darkness, assuming a false identity, and feeling no guilt whatsoever about it), then what you have is an age old form of foreign invasion, from peoples from a foreign land, which is precisely what it is. Instead of warfare, they simply find their way here, stake their territories out, and then over time heavily populate those territories.

History, (which Americans are no longer familiar with), reveals that this very same situation was the beginning of the Fall of the Roman Empire; (the allowing in of the 'barbarians' to do their labor for them). And do not, REPEAT, do not, expect the Repubicans, (as Mark Levin likes to call them), to help stop this invasion. If it does stop, it will be the American people themselves who do it, not our elected "representatives".

Emergency Homeowner Loan Program (EHLP)

They missed a great opportunity for a better acronym. Make it Homeowner Emergency Loan Program (HELP).

Ah yes. I had forgotten. But it was obvious at the time that the use of the TIN was a cheap scam to get around the SSAN requirement. Still makes my blood boil!

Happily that was one of the things I took into account when I got out of any equities late in 2007/early 2008 and went into cash and bonds. Did lose value in the house, but not that awful. Paying attention to concerns from sensible sites like this and others convinced me.

Really tells you what the real consequences of the illegal immigration disaster are: economic collapse.

Sadly agree with all you said. They can only get away with invasion both physical and cultural IF WE LET THEM.

And we are rolling over like a dog who wants his tummy rubbed.
