Loretta Sanchez Asked to Speak About DREAM Act at Pomona College, Talks About Herself Instead

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Loretta_Sanchez_official_photo.jpg
Here at your favorite infernal rag, we have long criticized Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez for not having the, um, ovaries to support the DREAM Act, waiting until the tragic death of a DREAMer to co-sponsor the bill in Congress. Of course, we always hear it from Loretta apologists aghast that we criticize THE ONLY OC DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS because, you know, we shouldn't.

Look, folks: we don't get a perverse pleasure out of it, but we gotta criticize politicians when they do something stupid--hence, our truthful description of OC Republicans as either pedophiles, closet homosexuals, corrupt, or a combination of all three. So here we are, criticizing Loretta again for putting herself before the interest of undocumented college students.

Deets after the jump!


This past Monday, Sanchez was invited to speak on the DREAM Act at Pomona College, on the invitation as part of the school's César Chávez celebration. Instead, according to the always vigilant Adriana Maestas of Latino Politics Blog, Sanchez spent the speech (titled "The Dream Act: The Status of Immigration Reform") talking about herself, and talked about the DREAM Act only when prompted by Maestas, who has also been fierce in her criticism of Sanchez despite being an Aztlanista. Look at the proof yourself:


Check out how she mispronounces the Spanish word for jacket. And STILL using Bob Dornan to score political points? FUNNY...

Loretta "Dirty" Sanchez is a disgrace and uses the mexicans to her advantage. Too bad they are such a dumb race of people that they can not see that.

Sanchez continues to master the art of meeting hopelessly low expectations. What more to expect from someone who played race politics to get elected, has no original ideas or, certainly, legislation, and is more interested in the cachet of being a Latina in Congress (dazzling!) than in actually accomplishing anything? Remember, this is a woman who wanted to get her sister elected to Congress that they could ... say they are the only sisters serving together in Congress. What a powerful social agenda.

"our truthful description of OC Republicans as either pedophiles, closet homosexuals, corrupt, or a combination of all three"

So what you are saying is that all OC Republicans are Mexican. Sounds about right.

Ooooh and she makes sure to mention DIVERSITY and the Korean Americans and Vietnamese Americans on her staff. Priceless.

So, she mocks the claim that she had "Brought in 'illegals' to vote for me..." Funny considering she tried running republican first and failed... and changed her name back to Sanchez to appeal to latino voters. Or the fact that she was called out for race baiting when she ran against Van Tran, who is Vietnamese, in 2010. http://doubleplusundead.mee.nu...

She's an embarrassment honestly.

I agree with the first sentence but YOUR ignorance shines in your second sentence. By this standard, liberal NEA drones in Wisconsin are a dumb race also. These two group's ultimate interests run parallel. Excellence through liberty! Equal opportunity, NOT equal outcome! Too deep for you?... we're not all dumb!

Actually, Sanchez didn't play the "race" (since when has Mexican been a race?) card until going up against Van Tran. The cha-cha card, on the other hand...

she played the numbers game... which is probably the real reason she switched party affiliation. she has conservative values but not quite enough substance which is why she figured switching to the democratic party was the logical choice to win a seat. who cares if the room was full of anglo men!!! the question that should be asked is if each is QUALIFIED to be there, regardless of ethnic background!!! i made my way through hard-earned achievement, not minority handouts. why isn't that ever the focus?
