La Raza, Corporations Sponsor Immigration Conference

This week, a coalition of liberal groups is holding the 2016 National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC) in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tennessee has some of the nation’s strongest laws prohibiting sanctuary city policies. However, Nashville’s mayor recently tweeted out the following statement: “I do not believe local resources should be used to enforce federal immigration administrative polices.”

We’ve found that the National Council of La Raza, an organization that supports sanctuary city policies, is a member of the conference steering committee. According to the  conference website, two of La Raza’s corporate sponsors, Bank of America and Citigroup, are also NIIC sponsors this year.

Breitbart News is reporting that George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and Walmart, another La Raza supporter, are also sponsoring a “concurrent event.”
