La Raza Leader Says Chants of “USA! USA!” Made Her Sick
La Raza president and CEO Janet Murguia told MSNBC last month the Murrieta protesters were “appalling” and “extremists.”
La Raza is a taxpayer funded radical Latino group that supports virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
This week Murguia said chants of “USA! USA!” made her sick.
La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia said it sickened her to hear Americans against illegal immigration chanting “USA! USA!” at protests around the country.
Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her keynote address at La Raza’s annual conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Murguia accused them of having “cloaked their hatred in patriotism” by shouting “‘USA! USA!’ again and again.”
“It made me angry,” she said. “In fact, I was outraged.”
Murguia demanded that the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently here receive amnesty and said the road to the White House for Republicans goes through the Latino community and La Raza. She also said Republicans who want to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or do not want to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation will not get Hispanic votes. And she repeatedly claimed that protesting illegal immigration was “un-American.”
“What we saw in Murrieta is not patriotism,” she asserted. “It is ugly, divisive, and yet another low in a debate I thought could not get much lower.”
Murguia did not say anything about the “Viva La Raza!” chants from pro-amnesty advocates in Murrieta. She also failed to mention that the number of illegal immigrant children who have unlawfully entered the country drastically spiked in the year after Obama enacted DACA in 2012.
