What is the National Council of La Raza?

NCLR’s major policy positions also include the following: It supports access to driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. It opposes the REAL ID Act, which requires that all driver’s license and photo ID applicants be able to verify they are legal residents of the United States, and that the documents they present to prove their identity are genuine. According to La Raza, this law “opens the door to widespread discrimination and civil rights violations.” It opposes the Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act CLEAR, which would empower state and local law-enforcement authorities to enforce federal immigration laws. La Raza argues this would “result in higher levels of racial profiling, police misconduct, and other civil rights violations.” It lobbies for racial and ethnic preferences affirmative action and set-asides in hiring, promotions, and college admissions. It supports bilingual education and bilingual ballots. It supports voting rights for illegal aliens. It supports stricter hate-crime laws. It opposes the Aviation Transportation and Security Act requiring that all airport baggage screeners be U.S. citizens. It opposed President Bush’s signing of the “Secure Fence Act of 2006” which authorized 700 miles of new border fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border.
