The funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars to the open borders and other anti-American groups by the Justice Department (DOJ) has ended.
A DOJ policy from the last administration that required settling parties (i.e. banks involved in the 2008 subprime mortgage debacle) to pay settlement funds to third party community organizations that were not directly involved in the litigation or harmed by the defendant’s conduct is over. Open borders, amnesty advocating “community organizations” like the anti-America La Raza (The Race) received millions.
A memo from Attorney General Jeff Sessions spells it out.
In the press release Attorney General Sessions says what many of us have thought for years, “ … any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people – not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power. Unfortunately, in recent years, the Department of Justice has sometimes required or encouraged defendants to make these payments to third parties as a condition of settlement. With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.”
He also reminds us, “… under the last Administration, the Department repeatedly required settling parties to pay settlement funds to third party community organizations that were not directly involved in the litigation … .”
At the time of this writing, the La Raza website made no mention of the cut-off. There is an announcement of their taxpayer funded Annual Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, July 8 – 11.
An indication of other activities that U.S. taxpayers have been funding is on La Raza’s media page. Ironically, one of the things La Raza has been calling for: Congress Needs to Stop Supplemental Funding for Trump’s Agenda of Intolerance.
As the political battles continue to be fought, La Raza (among others) has suffered a setback on two fronts. They are losing the welfare doled out by the last administration while the current administration increases funding for immigration law enforcement.
One of the speakers at the July Conference is Maricopa County (greater Phoenix) Sheriff Paul Penzone who defeated Joe Arpaio, self-styled “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” in last November’s election.
As Maricopa County refuses to support federal immigration law enforcement, perhaps Attorney General Sessions can cut off any federal law enforcement dollars to them. After all, if they won’t enforce federal laws, they won’t be needing it.
Suffice to say that the anti-American elements in the federal government for the past several years have purposely been funneling hundreds of millions of tax dollars to encourage and support the activities of anti-American, anti-law enforcement, pro-open border, pro-amnesty, pro-sanctuary city activists. And now, those days are over.
Thank you, Attorney General Sessions.
