Governor closes state office for Latino affairs

The state’s Office of Hispanic/Latino Affairs has been eliminated by N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory, a move considered by some as “just the latest clash” between McCrory and the Latino community. The office served as a conduit for policy feedback, a resource for emergency services, and a community education source for the state’s 800,000 Latino residents.

    I guess McCrory didn’t get the outreach memo from the national office.

    SUPPORT NC’s OWN Americans for LEGAL Immigration
    based in Rawleigh NC, but operates nationally!

    They NEED your support and they have a GREAT website that reports news from/about the ILLEGALs that doesn’t seem to get otherwise reported.

    William Gheen is an impressive leader of this group.

    Thanks to the Governor for allowing hispanics to assimilate into the culture without remaining a special class/group of citizens…
