Saturday Gripe: They Call Themselves 'Charities'

A Human Events writer reveals the exorbitant amount of government funds going to the coffers of the radical La Raza organization.

Mike Piccione also explains: "According to the 2008 tax returns seventeen people listed as officers, directors, trustees, key employees and highest compensated employees of the National Council of La Raza have an income ranging from $119,675 to $378,446, the latter of which goes to Janet Murguia (in the photo), president and CEO.

To put that income figure in perspective a rank and file United States Senator makes $174,000. A United States Marine Sergeant with five years of service earns a base salary of $29,376, including the raise received for 2011."

Let's hope this Congress puts an end to funding organizations, like La Raza, that work daily to undermine American sovereignty.

BTW: While they don't receive government funding, several executive directors or presidents in the immigration reform movement also command ridiculous salaries. Go here and here to see what Dan Stein and Roy Beck make. Compare those numbers to someone who is really on the front lines of the immigration issue - say, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County,* AZ who makes less than $100,000. Huge diff.

*An elected position; Sheriff Joe has held the office since 1992.
