One Reporter's Opinion @ The Attorney General and La Raza

Thursday, 10 March 2005 12:00 AM

Gonzales was greeted with warm applause when he reached out to La Raza, saying, "I have this organization [La Raza] to thank for support of my nomination for attorney general" and that he and La Raza share a commitment to Latinos. I don't think many Americans are aware of Judge Gonzales' long history and association with La Raza.

Another spokesman praised Bush for his anti-English-only requirements, such as anti-immigrant ballot initiatives, bilingual education and affirmative action. "There are a lot of issues," he said, in which Gonzales and Bush did the right thing.

They say timing is everything. On the 9th of March, the day before Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was to meet with her Mexican counterpart, the president announced that he was opening rehearings on the death penalties of 49 Mexican nationals convicted of murder. The grounds for the rehearings is that the 49 were not given world court rights when they were convicted – they were not given the privilege of contacting their Mexican consulate. Nor was that effort made by the U.S. government on their behalf. Therefore, the president would now give them that opportunity.

Some of the 49 have served behind prison walls for as long as 25 years! But it seems timely on the part of the president to now extend that privilege under the world court. Let me remind you, this was announced on the 9th – one day before Condoleezza Rice would meet with Mexican officials.

It is also noted that President Bush will meet with Mexico's President Fox on the 23rd of March. Obviously the president is throwing a bone to the Mexicans, who do not believe in the death penalty or life imprisonment without parole.

The Mexican government is very busy these days officially opposing the up and coming Minuteman Project (more on this project below); officials of the Mexican government are preparing to go to court to stop the American activists. The Mexicans have even gone so far as to hire a Los Angeles law firm to study legal options to stop the Minuteman Project. The issue is to be discussed by Secretary of State Rice when she meets with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez.

This fellow, Derbez, calls the Minuteman Project "incorrect and ILLEGAL" from the point of view not only of the Mexican administration but also in the view of the United States' own laws! It is recalled that Derbez made similar threats of legal action after Arizona voters approved Proposition 200, but a lawyer helping to challenge the proposition said Mexico has provided "moral support" but no money.

Meanwhile a network of Latino activists is taking on participants in the Minuteman Project, an armed civilian border patrol operation set to launch on April 1. The activists are using the word "attack." The goal of the Minutemen is to bring national attention to the nation's porous borders. They will report illegals they see entering the U.S. and wait for Border Patrol agents to come and pick them up.

But it's very possible the confrontation at the border between hundreds of peaceful American citizens and invading illegal aliens could possibly escalate into violence and mayhem. Will newly appointed Attorney General Gonzales, a member of La Raza, be able to remain objective on such an occasion?

It looks like there's going to be a showdown at the OK Corral on April 1. A high-level leader of the violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha has issued orders from federal prison to teach the Minutemen a lesson they will not forget. And Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Derbez planned to discuss Mexico's objections to the Minuteman Project with U.S. Secretary of State Rice March 10.

Just another in a long series of outrageous conflicts of interest hindering America from resolving the illegal alien invasion!
