The Daily Caller carries a story about UCLA funding Chicano nationalist group MEChA, which the piece claims is so radical that even La Raza won’t endorse it.
One thing the piece doesn’t mention is that Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was head of the UCLA chapter of MEChA. Another interesting fact about Villaraigosa is that he graduated from a “law school” called The People’s College of Law, but he failed the bar exam four or five times and never earned his license.
I was doing a bit of research on this particular law school – a school that charges about $4,000 per semester but whose students are not eligible for federal financial aid because of the school’s unaccredited status – and learned about its abysmal bar exam pass rate. In fact, there are a whole slew of schools in California that peddle law degrees without a good chance of spitting out licensed lawyers (it’s either the inputs or the process, or maybe both). The People’s College of Law is a bit different because it is openly Leftist with a pro-immigration, pro-La Raza agenda. It’s mission is to churn out attorneys from the minority and Hispanic community in order to further the goals of their brand of social justice.
The points here are that L.A.’s mayor is a radical Left-Marxist and, in the name of social justice, this People’s College of Law is actually fleecing its students because it charges them out of pocket for tuition and offers them a ball hair’s chance of passing the bar.
