Meet Obama’s New Chief Domestic Policy Adviser
Keith Koffler at White House DOssier:
President Obama today announced that White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Muñoz will be his new chief domestic policy adviser, installing a longtime Hispanic activist in a senior position just as the campaign season ramps up.
The appointment is a sure sign to major Latino organizations that Obama intends to get serious about immigration reform if he is reelected. The president will need Latino leaders not only in his corner but bursting with enthusiasm in order to help him get out the Hispanic vote.
So, who is Cecillia Munoz? Let’s go to Wiki
A longtime civil rights advocate, she worked as Senior Vice President for the Office of Research, Advocacy and Legislation at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), a nonprofit organization established to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans, overseeing advocacy activities that cover issues of importance to immigrants. In 2000, she was named a MacArthur Fellow for her work on civil rights and immigration.
In her new position, Munoz will “coordinate the policy-making process and supervise the execution of domestic policy in the White House.” And doing this job will be a former Vice President of La Raza.
“The Council of La Raza succeeded in having itself added to congressional hearings by Republican House and Senate leaders. And an anonymous senator even gave the Council of La Raza an extra $4 million in earmarked taxpayer money, supposedly for ‘housing reform,’ while La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.
Behind the respectable front of the National Council of La Raza lies the real agenda of the La Raza movement, the agenda that led to those thousands of illegal immigrants in the streets of American cities, waving Mexican flags, brazenly defying our laws, and demanding concessions.
Key among the secondary organizations is the radical racist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.”
Munoz also served on the Soro’s Funded “Open Society Institute.”
