Almost $1M in taxpayer money to La Raza

An Iowa congressman says it’s outrageous that nearly a million dollars of the proposed Omnibus spending bill would go to an organization that openly advocates illegal immigration.

Congressional officials report the $410-billion Omnibus spending bill currently being debated in Congress is packed with 9,000 earmarks, something candidate Barack Obama said last fall that he opposes. “We need earmark reform,” Obama said in the September presidential debate held in Oxford, Mississippi. “And when I’m president, I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.”

Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) says one of the earmarks in the Transportation HUD portion of the Omnibus bill allocates $950,000 to the National Council of La Raza for “capitalization of a revolving loan to be used for nationwide community development activities.”

King says taxpayer dollars should not be going to that organization.
