Hillary Clinton once said that she was "adamantly against illegal aliens" in a 2003 interview with WABC Radio, but has now given a high-profile illegal alien advocate a prime place in her presidential campaign.
The Associated Press reported that Raul Yzaguirre, who was president of the National Council of La Raza had signed on as co-chair to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
La Raza is the nation’s largest Hispanic advocacy organization. It has opposed the REAL ID Act, which would have prevented states from issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens and the CLEAR Act, which would grant state and local law enforcement agencies that wish to do so, the authority to enforce federal immigration laws.
The late Rep. Charlie Norwood wrote an excellent article for Human Events in April 2006 that explained the La Raza's close ties with Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA).
"Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West."
