Radical Mexican Reconquista zealot Munoz speaking at a soiree thown by the miserable ADL.
From the New York Times - October 22, 2000
...Cecilia Munoz, a vice president for policy at the National Council of La Raza [aka the Tan Klan], a Hispanic civil rights organization, described the national anti-immigration groups as "hate groups." She noted that Glenn Spencer, the leader of Voices of Citizens Together [now known as American Patrol] who spoke at Sachem's rally last weekend, believes that Mexicans on both sides of the border are plotting to reconquer parts of the Southwest. "He makes contentions that are ugly and very divisive," she said. "Not the kinds of things that bring people together, as is clearly needed in Farmingville right now."
San Francisco Chronicle - July 8, 1997
...Others, however, are ecstatic about [Spencer] Abraham's rise, which they see as an admission by the GOP that it has gone too far on immigration -- with potentially disastrous consequences at the ballot box. "The Republican Party has acknowledged that they are perceived as being anti-immigrant, and suffered in most recent elections as a result of that,'' said Cecilia Munoz of the National Council of La Raza. "Abraham represents a branch of the party very different from the folks who have been calling the shots over the past several years.''
Senate Judiciary Committee Oversight Hearing on Immigration Policy - April 4, 2001
...Cecilia Munoz, Vice President, National Council of La Raza (NCLR): "The extraordinary growth of our community, which is emerging as a force throughout the U.S., demonstrates the power of the immigration phenomenon and the ways in which the classic American story is being repeated all over the country," said Munoz. (At this point Senator Brownback broke in and said, "Yes, it is beautiful and the numbers are astounding.) However, she continued there are anti-immigrant organizations and movements working today to raise concerns about current waves of immigration. "At their best, these organized movements provoke discussion and debate; at their worst, they promote hatred and bigotry." Munoz then detailed four areas she would like to see the subcommittee address: Read the rest....
Senate Immigration subcommittee hearing on S. 1814, the AGJOBS Act - May 4, 2001
Cecilia Munoz - Vice President, National Council of LaRaza Ms. Munoz said that LaRaza opposes S. 1814 and "continues to side with the experts in government and in the private sector who have studied and found that there is still no shortage of work-authorized farmworkers, but a shortage of decent jobs and decent pay." Ms. Munoz said the bill would remove what small protections there are for farmworkers in current law and lower their wages. She also said LaRaza opposes the "legalization" provisions of the bill because most farmworkers would be unable to meet the requirements necessary to receive Green Cards. Instead, she proposed allowing illegal agriculture workers to become immediately eligible for permanent legal residency. However, she said LaRaza could not support S. 1814 even with this immediate legalization. She instead encouraged Congress to pass "pro-immigrant" legislation this year, such as an amnesty for illegal aliens in the country before 1986 and restoring the Section 245(i) program, which allows illegal aliens to remain in the country and adjust status by paying a $1,000 fee.
Online News Hour - PBS - July 17, 2001
GWEN IFILL: Cecilia Munoz, you heard President Fox speak today in Milwaukee. Why is the idea of legalizing illegal immigrants who are already living here making their status legal, why is that a good idea?
CECILIA MUNOZ: Well, because we know there are significant numbers of people living and working and paying taxes in the United States, raising their families here. They're clearly needed in our economy. It makes sense to bring them out of the shadows and give them full access to their rights. It's a longstanding community. It's a sizable community. It's a community whose employers tell us they want them to be able to stay permanently. It's really in our best interest to make sure that we bring them out of the shadows.
Amnesty, in English - Mark Krikorian
...Other amnesty supporters have gone farther, challenging the very concept of amnesty and seeking to legitimize illegal immigration. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.), for instance, rejects the concept altogether: "Amnesty - there's an implication that somehow you did something wrong and you need to be forgiven." Cecilia Munoz of the National Council of La Raza makes the same point in a more sophisticated fashion; the word "conveys a sense of forgiving someone for a crime," she says, when in fact, crossing the border illegally is a civil offense, not a criminal one. A quick look at Title 8, Section 1325 of the U.S. Code shows this to be false: Illegal entry into the United States is a misdemeanor on the first offense, and a felony afterward.
