How many noncitizen Latinos should HUD award $50,000 EHLP grants in lottery for American homeowners assistance?
Can redistribution of funds to a critical voting bloc answer embarrassing popularity ratings? (Judicial Watch) — President Obama’s favorite La Raza group has teamed up with a federal agency to promote one of the administration’s many government cash giveaways with Spanish ads encouraging Latinos — possibly illegal immigrants — to apply for free U.S. taxpayer dollars. The new campaign warns Hispanics that time is running out to get up to “$50,000 in help” from Uncle Sam to pay their mortgage, past due charges, taxes, insurance and even legal fees associated with their home. The money is being disbursed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of a billion-dollar Emergency Homeowner Loan Program (EHLP). In 2008 the agency revealed that some 5 million fraudulent or defaulted home mortgages were in the hands of illegal immigrants, who obtained the loans from banks that were pressured by the government to offer them. In fact, the agency in charge of preserving and promoting public confidence in the nation’s financial system, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), began pushing banks to offer services to illegal aliens years earlier and many still do today. It’s logical to assume that the involvement of the nation’s most powerful open borders group, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), in promoting government-funded mortgage aid is geared, at least in part, towards undocumented immigrants. The EHLP expired but recently got extended amid record-high unemployment to help people keep their homes. The NCLR, which has seen its federal funding skyrocket since one of its top officials got a job in Obama’s White House, wants to make sure Latinos get a piece of the pie. This week it launched a Spanish-language public service campaign to highlight the program’s “fast-approaching” deadline. “The biggest challenge now is ensuring that people know about this opportunity and take advantage of it during the short period that it is available,” according to the NCLR director who announced the campaign that will help Latinos “seize” an “opportunity.” In the ad HUD Assistant Secretary Mercedes Marquez alerts Hispanics of the imminent deadline to get their government cash and directs them to a Spanish HUD website that assures the money will be disbursed in a “fair and impartial manner.” Last year Marquez , a strong ally of the open borders movement, awarded an NCLR affiliate known as Chicanos Por la Causa nearly $40 million in grants to “stabilize neighborhoods and rebuild economies.” And just a few weeks ago, a Judicial Watch investigation revealed that federal funding for the NCLR, which for years has raked in millions of taxpayer dollars, catapulted since Obama hired its senior vice president (Cecilia Muñoz) to be his director of intergovernmental affairs. In fact, the government cash more than doubled the year Muñoz joined the White House, from $4.1 million to $11 million. NCLR affiliates nationwide fared just as well, raking in tens of millions of government grant and recovery dollars last year thanks to the Muñoz factor. http://weaselzippers.us/2011/07/08/obama-regime-working-with-la-raza-to-push-50000-cash-giveaways-in-spanish-ads-targeting-latinos/ http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2011/07/12/obama-needs-to-woo-hispanics-la-raza-chief-says/#ixzz1Rw7ntpOr How many non-citizens do you believe we should support with these substantial grants? Thanks for the comment and noticing an earlier post of the Q, Nita. I changed two words since posting this legitimate, newsworthy story/question last night, but obviously, anti-American bias amongst some moderators here makes it challenging to keep critical information in the public eye. It's also less than flattering to the President for how openly favor is shown to La Raza and other Hispanic groups who support anarchy for a group they believe should face no laws in a country where millions of undocumented (yes illegal) aliens don't belong. Several contacts & friends here appeared to be active, so I knew there would be support and dismay. Ha Ha, I'm always pleased to see you and include your contributions, and Ali, of course you're right. The news report even mentioned more than 5 million fraudulent loans and a document scandal with illegal aliens that was central to lauching the housing crisis. Does anyone believe this group of aliens doesn't work, which is also against the law?

Old people losing their home and non residents getting government help is wrong, illegal non citizens is wrong. With unemployment around 10 % then why are non citizen given jobs while Americans suffer? IF IF they are doing it for votes I think that would be immoral as well as illegal
Answered By: Golfer - 7/13/2011
Thanks for asking this question. Obviously no one who is here illegally should get the grant or other aid paid for by American taxpayers. Unfortunately Obama will resort to buying votes any way he can... More
