    Remember that time we New Yorkers got together and agreed to build a 24,000 sq. ft. headquarters for an immigrant community center? Neither does The Manhattan.

    Is providing legal services for illegal immigrants a personal passion of yours, dear reader? If so, you'll be thrilled to tour the new, three-story center, the crown jewel of the NY chapter of "Make the Road" (MRNY). It's their new home base for legal advice for illegals in Queens. And you helped to pay for it.

    MRNY is a 501(c)3. Along with its sister organizations in Connecticut, Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, MRNY advocates for illegals. That means its officers appear at events such as rallies and press conferences and meet with elected officials in order to influence legislation...and to raise funds.

    All of that is legal and above board, of course. The problem, as we have learned through the debacle that is Black Lives Matter, such organizations tend to exist primarily in order to line the pockets of their employees. Does the name Patrisse Cullors ring a bell?

    Moreover, they exist largely at the expense of taxpayers. Lastly and fundamentally, MRNY supports illegals who are breaking United States laws.

    As the chart above shows, New York City and the state paid a combined total of nearly $10 million just for a single building. Are the legal citizens of New York welcome in the building? Probably...if you donated to MRNY.

    Other affiliates of MRNY include The Center For Popular Democracy (CPD), which is more blatantly pro-everyone-who-isn't-a-white-male.

    From the CPD website:

    The Center for Popular Democracy works to create equity, opportunity and a dynamic democracy in partnership with high-impact base-building organizations, organizing alliances, and progressive unions. CPD strengthens our collective capacity to envision and win an innovative pro-worker, pro-immigrant, racial and economic justice agenda.

    Our Theory of Change

    CPD builds the power of communities to ensure the country embodies our vision of an inclusive, equitable society -- where people of color, immigrants, working families, women, and LGBTQ communities thrive together, supported by a resilient economy and political institutions that reflect our priorities.  CPD’s role is especially important at a time when our communities are being threatened and the institutions that sustain us are under attack.   

    MRNY and CPD are the soft public faces of a deeper societal rot: using a manufactured "migrant crisis" to defraud American taxpayers while chipping away at the foundation of the Republic.

    Thanks to The Connecticut Centinal for bringing "Make the Road" to our attention!
