Obama Has Given A La Raza-Affiliated ‘Non-Profit’ $356M

From the Washington Examiner:

Nonprofit that helps unaccompanied minors has seen explosive growth

By Susan Crabtree | July 31, 2014

The growing number of unaccompanied children coming across the southern border in recent years has proven lucrative for a Texas nonprofit with ties to a major immigration advocacy group, and more money could be on the way. Austin-based Southwest Key Programs has received more than $368 million in government grants over the last six years, $356 million of which went to provide food, shelter and other services for unaccompanied minors coming into the United States.

Wonder if they have ever had their tax exempt status questioned by the IRS? Or if they have ever been audited? (Just kidding.)

The nonprofit, which employs 2,200 people in six states, has undergone explosive growth in its budget during President Obama’s time in office, according to tax filings and federal spending databases. Southwest Key Programs went from receiving just $670,800 in federal grants in 2008 to $31 million in 2009, Obama’s first year in office, according to the Office of Management and Budget’s online database. So far this year, it has received $122.3 million from the Health and Human Services Department’s Office of Refugee Resettlement…

Always follow the money. It isn’t only the coyotes and drug cartels and Democrat Party who are profiting from this invasion of illegal aliens. Anyway, bear in mind that it is groups exactly like this one who will get the lion’s share of the $3.7 billion dollars Obama is demanding from Congress — to fix the border.

Before this week, the nonprofit’s website appeared to support the National Council of La Raza’s position that children crossing the border should not be deported back to their home countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador but instead should be integrated into American society permanently…

"Appears"? Of course they want these illegal aliens to stay here permanently. Like the Democrats, their jobs, their lively-hood depends on a permanent under-class.

Southwest Key Programs also has close ties to [La Raza]. The nonprofit shares two officers with the board of directors for the National Council of La Raza…

Dr. Juan Sanchez, who serves as president of Southwest Key Programs and made a salary of $338,000 in that role in 2012, is the uncompensated secretary of the board of La Raza, according to forms the organizations are required to file with the IRS. Anselmo Villereal, who serves on Southwest Key Programs’ board of directors, is the uncompensated treasurer for the Council.

The Council also recognized Southwest Key as its “affiliate of the year” in 2013 for its “exemplary work in empowering the Latino community and advancing the mission of NCLR.” The award sponsor, Ford Motor Co. Fund, gave Southwest a $25,000 check in recognition of the honor.

Which is the real scoop here. But the Washington Examiner chose to bury it at the bottom of their piece. Perhaps they didn’t want to be accused of racism for seeming to criticize a group called ‘The Race.’
