A Vision of a Hispanic American--Part I

Interesting. Read both articles. Contrast. You decide--what is really going on?

(SAN DIEGO) -- During his recent inauguration, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa offered a vision of where he wants to lead America's second largest city.

He also offered something else: a brief tutorial on what it means to be a Mexican American. It's about being an integrated part of both countries, and yet, in a way, remaining apart from each country.

This is what I keep reading about: Is it true?
What many of them do believe in is this wacky notion that somehow millions of Mexicans in America are secretly planning some revolt to retake the Southwest and hand it over to Mexico.
Does The National Council for La Raza have the best for our national security in mind? Here is what WorldNetDaily had to say.

La Raza supports legislation such as the Civil Liberties Restoration Act, which would roll back policies adopted after Sept. 11 designed to protect national security. It supports the "DREAM Act," which would mandate states to offer in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens – thus providing them with benefits not available to U.S. citizens from other states.

The group opposes the "Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act of 2003" and the "Homeland Security Enhancement Act" would give state and local police officers the authority to enforce federal immigration laws.

"While the safety and security of our communities and our country are of the utmost importance, new policies that would allow local police departments to enforce federal civil immigration law will hinder terrorist and other criminal investigations, and have a serious negative impact on Latino communities," La Raza explains.

The group also supports legislation to ensure illegal immigrants' ability to obtain driver's licenses.

I am concerned that Gonzalez is a serious contender for the Suprem Court. This could be a disaster for our national security and for the fight on terrorism.
"We are very encouraged by the Gonzales nomination," said the glowing endorsement by La Raza.
