  • ‘English only’ fight erupts at a Las Vegas caucus site when Dolores Huerta offers to translate

    02/22/2016 12:01:33 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 29 replies
    Veteran civil rights leader Dolores Huerta, an avid supporter of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, is accusing Bernie Sanders campaign staffers of preventing her from providing Spanish-language translation to voters who needed it at a Las Vegas caucus location during Saturday's Democratic primary. Huerta, who co-founded the National Farmworkers Association with late Cesar Chavez in the 1960s, told Univision reporter Fernando Peinado: "I don’t feel that Sanders' people respect our community. They stopped the people from having translation [services] in something as important as these caucuses that are taking place. They are showing that they don’t respect us." According to several...

    Labor leader Dolores Huerta attended a Nevada caucus to stump for Hillary Clinton — only to get shouted down by Bernie Sanders supporters, chanting "English only," when she tried to offer a Spanish translation. At least, that's what Huerta and other Clinton supporters are saying happened....
  • Dolores Huerta Prefers Woman to Latino Republican in White House (Co-founder of United Farm Workers)

    05/11/2015 7:54:24 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 23 replies
    MIAMI Union leader Dolores Huerta prefers a woman in the White House in 2016, saying that theres a lot at stake for Latinos if one of the current Republican hopefuls wins the election, even if he has a Latino name or speaks Spanish. The tireless 85-year-old activist said in an interview with Efe that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) took two steps back when he could have used his influence to pass immigration reform in 2013. Some of those candidates who are Latinos in reality dont represent the values of the Latino community, who for the most part are working...
  • Obama Awards Highest Honor to Democratic Socialists Chair

    Yesterday President Obama awarded radical open border advocate Dolores Huerta with the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor a civilian can receive. There's just one problem: Huerta is an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America and likes to pal around with Hugo Chavez. The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics. At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to...

    NY POST ^ | April 10, 2008 | MICHELE MALKIN e-mailbox lit up with messages about a new Absolut ad catering to Mexicans who believe the American Southwest belongs to them. (That extreme ethno-supremacist idea is not news to anyone who has paid attention to the massive illegal-alien marches where "This is our continent, not yours" has been a rallying mainstay.) Favio Ucedo, creative director of leading US Latino ad agency Grupo Gallegos, (not involved in the Absolut campaign), explained the reconquista-endorsing ad: "Mexicans talk about how the Americans stole their land, so this is their way of reclaiming it. It's very relevant and the Mexicans will love the...

    Obama, who has struggled to overcome Clinton's significant advantage among Latino voters in state after state, sought to one-up his rival for the Democratic presidential nod by joining the call for creating a national holiday to commemorate the father of the United Farm Workers. "That's why I support the call to make Cesar Chavez's birthday a national holiday. It's time to recognize the contributions of this American icon to the ongoing efforts to perfect our union." Eight states commemorate Chavez' birthday in some fashion. In California, all state offices are closed, but local government facilities and public schools are open....
  • English won't be Bakersfield's official language

    Bakersfield, Calif. (AP) -- A bid to make English the official language of this San Joaquin Valley city failed after much debate. The city council also shot down on Wednesday another proposal that would have made clear that Bakersfield is not a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, but it approved a resolution calling on the federal government to enact immigration reform. After the meeting, opponents of the English-only and the sanctuary resolutions praised the council for making the "morally correct" decision. . . . Famed labor leader Dolores Huerta, who spoke to city council members, called the defeated resolutions "hateful" and...
  • Did TUSD, Huerta break law? Special legislative panel will call for inquiry to find out

    PHOENIX A special legislative panel is preparing to seek an Attorney General's Office investigation into whether the Tucson Unified School District and a guest speaker broke state laws against using school resources to influence elections. A draft report obtained Friday also concludes that TUSD should remove the audio of what the panel called a "hate speech" by Dolores Huerta from its Web site immediately. It also says the district should apologize to students who were at the April 3 assembly where Huerta spoke and their parents. The preliminary findings by the House Select Committee on Government Operations, Performance...
