La Raza CEO: ‘USA! USA!’ Chants ‘Made Me Angry’

Tony Lee, Breitbart, July 23, 2014

La Raza President and CEO Janet Murguia said it sickened her to hear Americans against illegal immigration chanting “USA! USA!” at protests around the country.

Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her keynote address at La Raza’s annual conference in Los Angeles on Monday, Murguia accused them of having “cloaked their hatred in patriotism” by shouting “‘USA! USA!’ again and again.”

“It made me angry,” she said. “In fact, I was outraged.”

Murguia demanded that the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently here receive amnesty and said the road to the White House for Republicans goes through the Latino community and La Raza. {snip}

“What we saw in Murrieta is not patriotism,” she asserted. “It is ugly, divisive, and yet another low in a debate I thought could not get much lower.”

Murguia did not say anything about the “Viva La Raza!” chants from pro-amnesty advocates in Murrieta. {snip}
