Oops! Obama ‘champion’ scrubbed from website

By Aaron Klein

Indicted immigration activist Bonnie M. Youn

Without any explanation, the White House has scrubbed from its website an amnesty advocate who was honored by President Obama but who was then indicted for immigration fraud.

Immigration attorney Bonnie M. Youn was picked by the White House as one of 11 Cesar Chavez “Champions of Change” activists who purportedly embody the spirit and legacy of Chavez, a labor leader and civil rights activist.

According to a Breitbart report, however, on April 1, Youn was indicted on three criminal counts related to harboring illegal aliens. The charges included perjury, harboring an illegal alien for commercial and private financial gain and tampering with the witness testimony of an illegal alien.

In touting her as one of Obama’s 11 “Champions of Change,” the White House website originally listed Youn as “a recognized Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community leader in Georgia.”

Without any explanation or recognition of the alteration, however, the White House website quietly sliced the 11 “Champions of Change” to only 10 so-called champions.

“The White House honors 10 community leaders who embody the spirit of Cesar E. Chavez’s legacy,” reads the new WhiteHouse.gov text.

The online link for Youn’s bio now brings readers to a page that states: “UPDATE We’re updating the White House privacy policy, which will go into effect on April 18.”

Youn’s name, however, is still visible on the page as one of the “Champions of Change” (highlighted in red below):
