Grooming the Next President
Meet the newly confirmed secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio.
Following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, Castro was the keynote speaker at the 2008 Democratic Convention and is the new darling of the congressional progressive caucus.
The guy seems nice enough. He and his twin brother, Joaquin, went to Stanford, and admit to being affirmative action babies and jokes about not speaking Spanish that well. But if we look at the household he grew up in, we see something very different.
Meet Socialist Radical Mama Rosie Castro
The Castro brothers are very close to their mom, Rosie Castro, the radical anti-American activist for La Raza Unida. That’s Castro on the poster above. The woman has been a chicana activist most of her life and with her husband, was a founding member of the organization back in the 1970’s.
Born in San Antonio, TX, Rosie has stated that she hates the Alamo and everything it stands for and was quoted in the 2010 NY Time Magazine article:
“When I grew up, I learned that the ‘heroes’ of the Alamo were a bunch of drunks and crooks and slave-holding imperialists who conquered land that didn’t belong to them. But as a little girl I got the message—we were losers. I can truly say that I hate that place and everything it stands for.”
How does this tie in with what is happening at the border today?
The southern border of the United States, for all intents and purposes, no longer exists.
Millions of mostly latinos are flooding into this country with the promise of access to free housing, healthcare, welfare and schooling. Obama will provide for them all.
For the past several years, without the knowledge of the American people, the Obama administration has been contracting with NGO’s and funding them with hundreds of millions of dollars for advertising, transportation, food, housing, and schooling for millions of uneducated and unskilled men women and children in communities all over the country.
The La Raza Connection
Dr. Juan Sanchez, board member of The National Council of La Raza just happens to be the founder and president of a company called Southwest Key – which was given huge contracts last year to handle the illegal invasion of children and adults that is happening now at the Mexican border. They run immigrant youth shelters, residential treatment centers and alternative schools.
The National Council of La Raza gets heavy funding from the U.S. taxpayer as well as all the usual foundations.
In 2011, according to a Judicial Watch investigation, it was revealed that federal funding for NCLR and its affiliates had skyrocketed since President Barack Obama had hired its longtime senior policy analyst, Celia Muñoz, to be his director of intergovernmental affairs in 2009.
During Muñoz’s first year in the White House, government funds earmarked for La Raza totaled approximately $11 million—far above the $4.1 million figure for the previous year. 60 percent of that $11 million came from the Department of Labor—headed by Hilda Solis, who also has close ties to the La Raza movement.
Further, in 2010 the Department of Housing and Urban Development gave NCLR $2.5 million to fund its housing-counseling program; the Department of Education contributed almost $800,000 to NCLR; and the Centers for Disease Control gave approximately $250,000. Moreover, NCLR affiliates nationwide collected tens of millions of government grant and recovery dollars in 2010.
An NCLR offshoot called Chicanos Por La Causa, for example, saw its federal funding nearly double to $18.3 million following Muñoz’s appointment.
Ayuda Inc., which provides immigration law services and guarantees confidentiality to assure illegal aliens that they will not be reported to authorities, took in $600,000 in 2009 and $548,000 in 2010 from the Department of Justice. The group provides immigration law services and guarantees confidentiality to assure illegal aliens that they won’t be reported to authorities.
So much for a nation of laws.
