....the WH quietly promoted another self-dealing lobbyist....Cecilia Munoz, now intergovernmental affairs director, will head the Domestic Policy Council.

Munoz was chief registered lobbyist for La Raza (The Race)......which promotes drivers licenses and in-state tuition for illegals; opposed cooperative US immigration-enforcement efforts and a southern border fence.
Munoz advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal-alien amnesty....La Raza protested post-9/11 homeland-security measures and joined a failed lawsuit to block immigration information-sharing between the feds and local police. The group also has called for TV and cable-news networks to keep immigration-enforcement proponents off the airwaves.
La Raza and other open-borders groups pressured the White House to deliver the DREAM Acts bailout of illegal-alien students by executive fiat after it was defeated repeatedly by bipartisan majorities on Capitol Hill. Obama started issuing the amnesty waivers last August. This week, the White House announced an even wider expansion of waiver status to illegal aliens claiming hardship.
La Raza raked in $4.1 million in federal subsidies in 2009 and more than $11 million in 2010. Much of that money came from the Obama stimulus, and much of it went to mortgage counseling.
Thanks to strategic partnerships with Wachovia and Bank of America, La Raza has succeeded in lowering mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards. La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded community-development projects.
