When it comes to mischaracterizing and making false statements about immigrant rights group like National Council of La Raza (NCLR), Fox News Conservative Talker Sean Hannity is one of the best.
On Thursday, Media Matters brought us a story about Sean Hannity claiming that NCLR "has called for Mexico to annex southwestern states."
Janet Murguía, President and CEO of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) had this to say in response to Hannity’s statements:
NCLR has never made the statement and does not support the views Mr. Hannity attributes to us, as even a cursory review of our public statements or website would substantiate. Such conspiracy theories would be silly if they were not so often used to create fear and distrust of all Hispanics living in America. While Mr. Hannity is well within his rights to disagree with the views of our organization, he is not entitled to lie about us. In light of this, we are asking in the strongest terms possible for an immediate on-air correction.The false statements from Sean Hannity about NCLR shows a disturbing level of hatred for organizations and individuals wishing to protect and further the rights of immigrants.
