Obama's veil of secrecy is pierced

Fewer than half of adult Latino citizens voted in the 2012 presidential elections, according to the U.S. Census, and that has prompted two national Latino organizations to step up voter registration efforts this year, months ahead of the 2014 elections.
Hispanic-Americans increasingly see illegal immigration as a problem for their own community, according to a new report that found a significant number of Latinos who say it's causing them to suffer discrimination.
President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Monday denounced those in his party he said have injected "insults" into the immigration debate but refused to back away from his new enforcement-first approach to the issue.
After decades of punching beneath their political weight, National Council of La Raza and its allies vow to boost Hispanic voter participation by reducing the gap between those eligible versus number who turn out on Election Day.
When McCain speaks to the nation's largest Hispanic rights group this weekend, he will face an audience confused about his immigration position and looking for the same champion with whom they have worked for two decades.
Let me get this straight - Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and allied groups get nearly three years of unfettered access to Fox, MSNBC and CNN to demagogue views on immigration; they get the enthusiastic endorsement of network talk-show hosts such as Lou Dobbs, Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck, who echo their rhetoric, champion their issues and deride anyone who raises a voice in opposition as supporters of "open borders" or "pro-illegal immigration"; they disparage our motives when we appear on their programs or issue a statement. Yet he's calling us bullies and crying foul because we dare to push back? ("Attempts at censorship," Op-Ed, Tuesday.)
In his May 31Op-Ed column, "La Raza and Americans," Jim Simpson railed against bipartisan legislation that would provide funding for community development and affordable housing programs for low- and moderate-income Latino families administered through the organization I lead, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR).
A recent proposal in Congress — H.R. 1999, which was cosponsored in April by Reps. Ruben Hinojosa of Texas and Rick Renzi of Arizona — would provide $10 million a year to a radical immigration group, the National Council of La Raza (meaning "the race"). The bill offers funds for "community development and affordable housing projects and programs serving low- and moderate-income households," for families of "Hispanic origin."
