Dear Mr. Pfeiffer,
Regarding your article posted in the Daily Caller. There is a lot about the Chicano / La Raza movement that is not widespread public knowledge. The website of the lawyers' group that you cite leaves much out about the roots of the term "La Raza." They accurately mention that the writings of Jose Vasconcelos were influential in the ideology of the La Raza (aka Chicano) movement, which was founded in the late 1960's. However, they fail somehow to mention that Vasconcelos was a paid Nazi propagandist during WWII and an admirer of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi racial-identity-based, quasi-religious ideology.
His book La Raza Cosmica is a kind of rewrite of Nazi mythology and mysticism for the Mexican (mestizo race) environment. He played approximately the same role for Mexican ethnic/racial nationalism as did the Nazi mystic, Alfred Rosenberg, for Nazi mystical racial nationalism.
La Raza /Chicano-ism is an esoteric movement. That is, they are not completely open about their core ideology and the ultimate goals of the movement. However, there are a number of examples of Chicano leaders explicitly stating that they seek political control of the Southwestern United States and even that Anglos should be ethnically cleansed from the Southwest and the Americas. There is also a smaller group of Mexican Nationalists, called the Meshica that is even more radical than the Chicano movement. These are just two examples below of Chicano extremism.

Groups, which protest against illegal immigration, have known for a long time what the ultimate goals of the Chicano / La Raza movement are. They have been dismissed and ignored for years by the mainstream media. It would be great, if some journalists -- such as write for your excellent alternative news website -- would dig deeper into this subject and report in a little more detail about it, not just accepting the disingenuous, diversionary explanations that come from La Raza leaders themselves. This topic has largely been ignored by the mainstream media, because the truth is not politically correct. Given the current controversy over illegal immigration, it is high time for the truth about this Mexican-racial/ethnic identity movement to be fully exposed to the public.
