President Nixon’s chairman of the Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish Speaking People, Dr. Henry Ramirez will discuss the formal integration of Hispanics into the federal government under the Nixon administration.
A Chicano in the White House is the first book to tell the unknown story of President Richard M. Nixon and the Chicanos. Nixon found us. He made us known and famous. Only Nixon or I could have written this book. He and I are the only ones who knew what visions we discussed and planned in the Oval Office. It is a disclosure of how his visionary actions brought an unknown, forgotten, and conquered raza into mainstream America.
I present details of the first “exodus” through the 1920s of almost two million rural and illiterate, landless peasants from a feudal society to the Midwest and Southwest of the United States, where they established “little Mexico’s” called barrios. The Mexican Revolution of 1910 turned ugly after 1913 when the leaders of the Marxist Union named International Workers of the World, (I.W.W.) of Baltimore, Maryland, imposed a quasi-Stalinist regime and proceeded to persecute and attempt to eliminate the Catholic Church in Mexico. The atrocities against Catholics caused frightened flight on empty boxcars to “El Norte.”
