The following is a contribution by outside blogger Gregory Sokoloff. Opinions expressed are solely those of Mr. Sokoloff.
Most of these people don’t even have the right to be present in this country, much less to work. And one cannot hire them even for a day without breaking the law. And yet day laborers of League City, Texas, apparently feel so emboldened and sure of their future that they are suing Texas Gov. Rick Perry and the city police department, alleging that it is not them, but the authorities who are breaking the law.
According to a very empathetic report by Univision, the Spanish-language TV network, the laborers used to congregate at a League City parking lot where entrepreneurs willing to take advantage of cheap illegal labor used to pick them up. Police have apparently disrupted this hush-hush black market, but, in doing so, have incurred the wrath not only of the laborers, but also of the Mexican American Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), which bills itself as a law firm for the Latino community.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court last year, alleges discrimination and violation of the laborers’ Constitutional rights. No word, of course, about the plaintiffs’ legal status in this country. “In this case, it is very important to know that everybody has a right to work,” Marisa Bono, the lead attorney for MALDEF, told Univision in Spanish. Really? Even those who sneaked across the border illegally?
“In public places, an individual can ask for money for his or her church, and an individual can ask for work,” Ms. Bono went on to say. “And this is part of our rights under the Constitution.” And if an individual does not have a right even to be in this country? Univision, of course, conveniently avoided this prickly question, and so did Ms. Bono.
But when asked if racism was the driving force behind police actions, she answered, as expected, with a resounding “Yes.”
“City police are not focusing on everybody,” Ms. Bono asserted. “They are focusing specifically on day laborers. Okay? And day laborers in League City are Latinos.” And so are most illegal aliens throughout this country. So, it is not difficult to figure out what Ms. Bono and other people at MALDEF think about enforcing our immigration laws.
It’s not the first time that MALDEF is trying to turn our legal system upside down. The scary part is that they have had some successes. In 2010, they managed to strike down an Arizona state law that demanded a really outrageous and discriminatory thing – proof of citizenship before voter registration. And in 2009, President Barack Obama appointed John D. Trasvina, MALDEF’s president the general counsel at the time, assistant secretary of fair housing and equal opportunity at the Department of Housing and Urban Development where he remains to this day.
So, be careful all of you who want our immigration laws enforced. These lawyers have powerful friends in high places.

MORE STEALTH AMNESTY!
OBAMA’S I.C.E. IS ONE MORE AGENCY TO EXPAND HIS LA RAZA PARTY BASE OF ILLEGALS!
WHAT IS THERE TO SAY ABOUT AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT THAT HAS CONTEMPT FOR OUR BORDERS AND EVEN SABOTAGES THEM TO BUILD HIS LA RAZA PARTY BASE OF ILLEGALS, HAS CONTEMPT FOR OUR SOVEREIGNTY LAWS, SABOTAGES E-VERIFY TO ASSURE ILLEGALS GET OUR JOBS, FIGHTS AGAINST VOTER I.D. TO ASSURE ILLEGALS EASY ACCESS (again) TO OUR VOTING, AND SUES FOUR AMERICAN STATES ON BEHALF OF HIS LA RAZA AGENDA?????
NO ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY IS AS INFESTED WITH A FOREIGN POLITICAL PARTY AS OBAMA’S IS WITH LA RAZA SUPREMACIST PARTY!
NO PRESIDENT HAS HANDED SO MUCH TAX PAYER FUNDING TO A FOREIGN PARTY AS OBAMA HAS IN FUNDING THE MEXICAN FASCIST PARTY of LA RAZA!
The Obama administration’s campaign to suspend the deportations of most illegal aliens has been subject to intense scrutiny since 2010, when the press uncovered a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services memo that contemplated various “administrative alternatives” to bypass Congress and implement stealth amnesty for illegal aliens. A subsequent Houston Chronicle story exposed an effort by the administration to suspend the deportations of illegal aliens who supposedly have not been convicted of any “serious” crimes.
LOS ANGELES where it’s racist to enforce the laws against LA RAZA!
I signed up for a news show from Texas a few weeks ago and it’s a eye opener. This part of Texas covers the Rio Grand valley and has the Rio Grand river bordering it and one of the reporters was interviewing a rancher that now carries a AK-47 with him when he is working on his own land because of the drug cartels and the illegals they the transport across the river carrying backpacks of pot. The rancher refused to allow his face on camera because he didn’t want to be identified because he was afraid of the cartels. A few days ago a small bar was held up by a group of Mexican men that identified themselves as Zetta’s and robbed every person in the place and then said they would be back for more money from the owner. The police said they didn’t think they were Zetta’s that they were just passing through heading back to Mexico because they can’t be found. What the police really meant was the people in the Bar are still alive because the Zettas generally kill every person in any house or business they attack. Because of this threat no one goes to the business anymore. Everyone is terrified of the Zettas these people have killed thousands in Mexico. And keep in mind this is on US side of border. So Obama and Nappies claim that the border is safe and no one comes across it anymore are lying to the public as usual.
please post this on the blog!
If the anti-constitution and anti-rule-of-law group keep control of the government in Nov, I would be in favor of a takeover by the armed forces to clean out these people who are installing a Socialist Dictatorship under our noses. In fact, I wouldn’t object to a military coup right now. There is already reason enough to arrest and jail these corrupt and illegal people and their supporters and give this country back to those who follow the constitution and the laws.
Oh-oh-oh, Bob! You think the Dems have not thought about it! Let’s see. You’ll say, “Army, please help us!” And in response you’ll hear from whom? General Sanchez, Colonel Martinez, Sergeant Ramirez and Private Lopez. What do you think they will tell you? “Si, senor?” No, the Dems took it all into account when they started promoting minority recruitment into the armed forces. Even though I disagree with them ideologically on practically every point, I have to give it to them: As opposed to Republicans, they do have a plan. It’s sinister, but that’s a plan.
Open border advocates will use any excuse, or go to any thing, to keep the border open and more Hispanics in for the RECONQUISTA of this land back to Mexico, wake up America we have a election coming and we need to have someone willing to enforce immigration laws and clean up America, in the White House. I am a Hispanic and I know many Americans fell sorry for the new comers, because they are been told, they are only coming in to work and for a better future for their families, but this is only part of the reason, the other one is the reconquista by numbers. Just think, in 86 we gave amnesty to what we were told was 1 million illegals and turn out to be about 3 million, now they tell us we have 12 million illegals here and it probably end up to be three times as much, so every time we give amnesty their numbers increase substantially and in 10 years, we will probably have a lot more than today asking for amnesty also. We have to put a stop to this nonsense, there are means to come to this country legally, like the rest of us did. We can not continue sending the message to the world that our immigration laws mean nothing and they can keep coming as they please, because we will became a broke and lawless country. We don’t have the money to support this invasion and we are a country of laws.
MORE ON LA RAZA RACISM:
OBAMA’S LA RAZA AGENDA OF OPEN BORDERS WITH NARCOMEX TO KEEP WAGES FOR LEGALS DEPRESSED TO THIRD-WORLD SLAVE LABOR LEVELS. NO PRESIDENT IN HISTORY HAS SABOTAGED OUR BORDERS LIKE OBAMA, INFESTED HIS ADMIN WITH LA RAZA PARTY MEMBERS, OR SUED STATES ON BEHALF OF THE INTERESTS OF HIS LA RAZA PART BASE LIKE THIS MAN!
La Raza means the Racist.
Willy it actually mean’s ” the race” no more no less, But the group ” LA RAZA ” would like to make people think that Hispanic is a race, and not just an ethnicity which is what it is, by making good people feel they are being RACIST by wanting an end to the illegal immigrant invasion of this Country from south of the border Mexico, and Central America. They would say that any that it is their right to come here because it means a better life. they should have made a better life at home, and not try, steal the life of the citizens, and legal immigrants to this Country.
The Race. LaRaza means “The Race”.
we need to start doing things about groups like this our selfs since the goverment is corrupt
Racist? There are LAWS on the books in India making it illegal for white people to work there. How’s that for racist? If America were racist would we take in 1,000,000 foreigners every single year, year after year? America is the least racist country on earth.
Racism is the most popular word of late, encouraged by the left and all who want a free handout from working Americans. I have lived all over this country, and never had any preconceived notions about other races of
people until I actually came in contact with them. This word, “racist”, has outlived itself, and it is generally used by the most racist of people, and always when they are told they can’t get their own way about an issue they are touting. If they were to apply themselves to their own aims as readily as they do trying to promote their racist behaviors, they would get somewhere in life. I personally hate laziness, and generational welfare recipients, which we have an abundance of in this country, thanks to our government, both dems and reps. If these people were more aware of what the government pays them for, they would realize it isn’t to help them or anyone. It is to keep them under their thumbs, controlling them 100%. Just another form of slavery.
To Univision, MALDEF, and the rest of the low life open border ilk, it’s the “Rule of Law” you imbeciles, not racism! Unfortunately, the U.S. citizens have had to endure this ongoing tragedy for decades, thanks to the ineptitude & spinelessness of our government representatives. Currently, Pres. BO, his utterly useless appointments & administration, along with the liberal idiots in the Senate, refuse to rectify their blatant dereliction of duty & have only exacerbated it!
The 3rd world doesn’t understand the rule of law. That’s why they’re the 3rd world. They’ve all been taught in schools that they are poor because evil whitey stepped on them all these years. Hence they feel it is their DUTY to plunder us when we come here. Our pols are just former elites who are jealous that they were eclipsed in the 90s by American tech workers. Read “The rise of the creative class”. So our pols selling us out achieves both the goal of them getting their prestige back and of shoving American tech workers down. Doesn’t matter if it ruins the world economy because no new innovation is taking place – all the pols care about is getting their power and glory back. Google “Guest workers exposed Chapter 3”. There is a free PDF on the internet that exposes the 3rd world labor lie that is killing the US economy.
LET DO OBAMA ON E-VERIFY??????????????
THIS IS SIMPLY A CASE OF LA RAZA SUPREMACY!
WHILE ILLEGAL HAVE PROFOUND CONTEMPT NOT ONLY FOR OUR BORDERS, CULTURE, LANGUAGE AND FLAG, THEY ALSO HAVE CONTEMPT FOR OUR LAWS… BUT WILL USE THEM WHEN IT IS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.
THEY KNOW AMERICAN LAWS ARE !!! NEVER !!! ENFORCED WHEN IT COMES TO LA RAZA!
AN AMERICAN SEES & SPEAKS!
Sonia Sotomayor opposes E-Verify requirement
True to form, she said it was illegal to make employers e-verify citizen status of new hires.
Interesting, she says a state cannot force employers to check if employees they are hiring are illegal. Thankfully the court ruled 5-3 supporting law. But now we know for sure just how extreme far left Obama’s choice was. We cannot afford Obama to get another term, or you can bet this country will be overrun by illegals. I don’t want this country to be poor and corrupt like Mexico, which it will if illegals overrun the country.
