(GREELEY GAZETTE) President Obama has chosen a woman who was a former senior vice president in what some have said is a racist organization to head his Domestic Policy Council.
On Tuesday, the White House issued an announcement that President Obama had chosen Cecilia Muñoz to replace Melody Barnes as council head. Muñoz was a former vice-president of the National Council of La Raza, which means “the race.”
Critics have said that the organization supports amnesty for illegal aliens and supports MECha (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlán) which has advocated for the “Reconquista” movement. The movement calls for Colorado, California, Arizona, Texas and Utah, New Mexico and parts of Oregon to make up a new country known as “Azltan” the supposed ancestral land of the Aztecs prior to the arrival or Europeans.
