Taken from pages 15 and 16 of MALDEF's annual report (see above to download).....
[MALDEF's] vision is of an America where being Latino is no longer an obstacle to full participation in society. We imagine an America where all people, including Latinos, enjoy the same rights and protections under the law; where Latino voices are fully heard and represented in the political process; where all people work together to maintain high levels of justice and fairness throughout the American system. Thank you to all of you who have supported MALDEF throughout this year.

This year, Luis Nogales, one of the nation's most prominent corporate leaders and Latino investors, pledged $1 million for the protection of immigrant rights in a bequest to MALDEF.

"Millions of Latino immigrants are making valuable contributions to our economy and society, but they live and work unprotected by our laws and marginalized in participating in the life of our nation," said Mr. Nogales. "We're a nation of immigrants but it's always taken great uphill effort to secure the rights of new immigrants. This donation demonstrates my faith in the capacity of our institutions to give new Americans the full measure of their human and civil rights and the opportunity to pursue the American Dream." MALDEF is deeply grateful to Mr. Nogales for the largest gift by an individual in our history.

Note: Aiding and abetting illegal aliens is a crime.
