RN HA Camps Settle on Arbitrator
Republican National Hispanic Assembly members formed a “blue ribbon” committee to begin settling internal leadership differences during an April 28 meeting called by Republican National Committee Chairman Frank Fahren-kopf. Fahrenkopf had officially severed RNC relations with the national RNHA in March.
Questions over RNHA leadership arose after Chairman Fernando de Baca was reelected during a Feb. 28 meeting in Nashua, N.H. His election followed an executive committee meeting in which it was decided to postpone elections until May. The RNHA constitution provides for biennial elections in February.
Saying the Nashua election was illegal, several state chairs refused to recognize de Baca and formed a committee to organize elections.
In opening remarks to the more than 50 RNHA members and state chairs present at the Washington meeting, Fahrenkopf said,
“As national chairman, I need to be able to work with an established, identified leadershipi I can’t make that determination.”
In an April 17 letter, Fahrenkopf said he was calling the meeting, after requests from numerous state chairs, to help “resolve the apparent dispute over the leadership of the RNHA.”
After more than two hours of often heated discussion, the two groups agreed to name three people each to a committee headed by New Mexico Republican Party Chair Edward Luj&n. Lujan is also chairman of the RNCs minority and ethnic participation committee and was chosen as an arbitrator in the dispute. De Baca is an ex officio member of the committee.
George Adams of California, who was elected co-chair in Nashua, Aida Casaftas O’Connor, general counsel in New York, and Bill Wallace, Arkansas state chair, represent the Nashua

Miami Firm Beset by Investigations
House Committee OKs English-Only Funding
The House Education and Labor Committee approved an amendment April 22 under which 70-75% of any new funds for bilingual education over the next five years would be authorized for English-only programs.
The seven-member committee voted by voice vote to attach the amendment to the 1987 omnibus education bill, which will be considered byjthe full House next month. Voting against it were Reps. Bill Richardson (D-N.M.) and Matthew Martinez (D-Calif.^
Arturo Vargas, an education specialist with the National Council of La Raza, called the amendment a “symbolic ideological victory^’ for the U.S. Department of Education. Vargas said the 70-75% can be taken only from the part of the Bilingual Education Act which deals with instructional programs. The funding for instructional programs must meet current funding levels - roughly $90-$99 million-after they are adjusted for inflation.
‘Contract1 Called Racist
A Miami federal grand jury indicted April 22 the president of the nation’s third largest Hispanic-owned firm, International Medical Centers, on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and making unlawful payments to secure business from a labor union.
The indictment charged Miguel Recarey with making illegal payments to a labor union official to obtain a contract with the union’s health benefit plan. Recarey was charged for allegedly trying to influence a potential grand jury witness.
Recarey has since stepped down as president of the health maintenance organization but remains as chairman of Recarey Enterprises Inc., the holding company which owns IMC. IMC generated $370 million in 1985 sales, according to an annual survey last year by Hispanic Business magazine.
The same day the indictment was handed down, the Inspector General of the Health and Human Services Administration recommended that IMC’s status as a Medicare contractor be suspended. A spokeswoman with the Inspector General’s office said the recommendation was unrelated to the indict-
ment Judy Holtz said it was made because IMC has been unable to meet the requirement that no more than 50% of its subscribers be Medicare recipients. As of March, 76% of IMC’s clients received Medicare.
IMC had until April 30 to fulfill conditions set by HHS to maintain its contract.
Peter Bernal, a vice president for IMC, would not comment on the indictments, but told Weekly Report that IMC would meet HHS’ deadline.
Application Process Starts
Applications for legalization under the federal immigration law will start being accepted May 5, a day more commonly known to the Mexican and Mexican American community as Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates May5,1862, when invading French forces were repulsed at the state of Puebla, Mexico. On this day in 1987, more than 100 Immigration and Naturalization offices throughout the country will begin the yearlong process of accepting and processing legalization applications.
‘Contract9 Called Racist
Rub6n Bonilla, chairman of the 12,000-member Mexican-American Democrats of Texas, charged in a telegram April 23 that a disciplinary contract by the Torniilo Independent School District is racist. The proposal requests that parents“discipline” their children if school officials notify them that their children spoke Spanish in school.
“ ’Discipline’ was a poor choice of words and I should have asked parents to’encouragef their children to speak English,’’jsaid Superintendent Francis Brooks.
The voluntary contract, mailed April 22 to parents of the district’s 370 students, aims to encourage children to learn English, he said. Ninety-five percent of the students in the small farming community, 35 miles southeast of El Paso, are Mexican American.
In the telegram, Bonilla charged Brooks with trying to force a wedge between Hispanic citizens and other Texans.
“My comment to that,” Brooks told Weekly Report, “is my wife’s maiden name is Bonilla and if I’m going to drive a wedge, i then she’s going to be on the other side.”

Fidel L6pez, the 47-year-old president of Broadacre Consulting Company, was elected chairman of the Board of Directors of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund during the organization’s annual meeting in Los Angeles April 24 and 25.
A member of the MALDEF board since 1984, the Chicago realtor, of Mexican origin, replaces chair Eric Serna. Serna directs the New Mexico Corporation Commission. He led a move in January to replace MALDEF President and General Counsel Antonia Hernandez with former New Mexico Gov. Toney Anaya.

“There’s no question about it. I am looking | toward to working with all members of the ' board and I am very excited about the new i members joining the board,” Hernandez said.
The 15 new members bring to 37 the number of people on the MALDEF board. Terms of 12 members expired in April. Ac- j cording to L6pez, the board plans to concentrate on immigration issues, along with I voting rights and education.

Calif. Assembly Extends Bilingual Ed.
The California Assembly voted, 42-31, April 22 to extend bilingual education for five years despite strong Republican opposition.
Sponsored by Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco), the bill extends current bilingual programs to 1992. The programs are set to expire June 30.
Gov. George Deukmejian vetoed a similar bill by Brown last year and is expected to veto this one also. The bill is currently in the Senate Rules Committee.
Under California law, schools must provide
Bonilla Fails in Runoff Bid
AttorneyTony Bonilla, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens from 1981 to 1983, lost an April 18 mayoral runoff in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Bonilla, 51, bowed to Betty Turner, polling 21,745 votes (42.3%) to her 29,649 (57.7%).
The Gulf Coast city, half of whose 250,000 residents are Hispanic, has never elected a Latino mayor.
Radio Station Closes* Blames English-Only
A Spanish-language radio station in Colorado Springs, Colo., ceased broadcasting April 24 because English-only legislation scared away its advertisers, said its general manager, Bob Armenddriz.
The station, KPIK-AM, could not attract enough ads to break even, he said.
Armendariz blamed efforts by state Rep. Barbara Phillips (R-Colorado Springs) to make English the state’s official language, for discouraging potential advertisers.
“When national advertisers were looking at us at the time, local ones weren’t,” Armendariz said. “It gave us a negative connotation regardless of what Phillips says. If you’re not speaking English, then everything else is bad, right?.
“The fact is that 90% of our listeners spoke English as their primary language and Spanish second,” he added.
instruction in a student’s native tongue when there are 10 students speaking that language in a single grade. The school must also teach students in English with the aim of bringing them up to their grade level in English proficiency.
There are approximately 525,000 students enrolled in bilingual programs throughout California
If the state program is not extended, school districts would be regulated by less stringent federal law and could use teaching methods such as immersion, in which students are placed in English-only classea
The legislation will not be effective until Jan. 1, 1987. To circumvent this, Assembly Democrats have included a provision in the 1987-88 budget that would require school districts to follow current requirements through December.

camp. Representing the state chairmen’s committee are Bob Martinez of Colorado, Alfred Villalobos of California, and Cathi Villal-pando of Texas
Adams; Villalobos and Villalpando told Weekly Report they are interested in running for chair of the RNHA
The state chairmen’s committee had scheduled an election in Las Vegas for May 8 and 9 and the Nashua group had set a constitutional convention for the same dates Both of those meetings have been canceled.
“Nashua was legal,” said Maria Garcia of NewYork. She is one of several RNHA members who support the outcome of the February elections There are other internal issues dividing the RNHA such as the accreditation of chapters actual membership in chapters and personal differences.
Despite differing viewpoints committee members agreed to meet immediately. “We’ve got to resolve it and we’ve got to move foward,” Lujan said, adding, “We have to make this RNHA an organization that is going to be viable in the 1988 election.”

Chicago Ward Contest to be Decided in Court
A Cook County Circuit Court is expected to begin hearings this week on a voting recount challenge brought by Ambrosio Medrano, who lost the Chicago Ward 25 aldermanic j race by three votes against incumbent Juan Soliz.
Soliz received 4,713 votes to Medrantfs 4,710 in the April 7 runoff race. “The vote totals did change, although unofficially. It’s up to the court to sanction it,” said Mickey Levinson, general counsel to the Chicago Board of Elections Vote totals were unavailable for release.
Levinson said there are other unresolved issues in the election, such as ballots which were incorrectly inserted and ballots which were partially punched and therefore not recorded by the voting machines
If Medrano is declared to have more votes Levinson said the court could either call for a new election or order him to assume Soliz’s seat
Alatorre Easily Re-elected
Richard Alatorre easily won re-election to the 15-member Los Angeles City Council against two challengers April 14, polling 6,626 votes or 60%.
Alatorre was first elected as the 14th District councilman in a December 1985 special election.
Leticia Quezada was elected to the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education, a position vacated when Larry Gonzdlez decided to run against Gloria Molina for the City Council in February.
Quezada received 9,242 votes (55.9%) to Raul Ruiz’s 4,430 (26.8%).
Quezads 32, was previously a member of the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District.

NAHJ’s board also agreed to give greater voice to the Hispanic Academy of Media Arts and Sciences in the planning of next year’s conference and to get together with HAMAS and other Latino media organizations which have worked actively on the national conference to take a long-range look at future joint efforts
The first conference drew 300 participants to San Diego in December 1982. Subsequent ones were staged in the month of April, each with substantial attendance increases:

Miami Firm Beset by Investigations A Miami federal grand jury indicted April22 the president of the nation's third largest Hispanic-owned firm , International Me . dical Centers, on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and making unlawful payments to secure business from a labor union . The indictment charged Miguel Recarey with making illegal payments to a labor union official to obtain a contract with the union's health benefit plan. Recareywas charged for allegedly trying to influence a potential grand 'jury witness. Recarey _ has since stepped down as pre sident of the health maintenance organization . but remains as chairman of Recarey Enter prises Inc., the holding company which owns IMC . IMC generated $370 million in 1985 sales, according to an annual survey last year by Hispanic Business magazine . The same day the indictment was handed down , the Inspector General of the Health and Human Services Administratior;l recom mended that IMC's status as a Medicare contractor be suspended . A spokeswoman with the Inspector General's office said the recommendation was unrelated to the indictment. Judy Holtz said it was made because IMC has been unable to meet the requirement that no more than 50% of its subscribers be Medicare recipients. As of March, 76% of IMC's clients received Medicare. IMC had until April 30 to fulfill conditions set by HHS to maintain its contract. Peter Bernal, a vice president for IMC, would not comment on the indictments, but told Weekly Report that IMC would meet deadline. Application Process Starts Applications for legalization under t he federal immigration law will start being accepted May 5, a day more commonly known to the Mexican and Mexican American community as Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo commemorates May5, 1862, when invading French forces were repulsed at the state of Puebla, Mexico. On this day in 1987, more than 100 Immigration and Natural ization offices throughout the country will begin the yearlong process of accepting and processing legalization applications . 'Contract Called Racist Ruben Bonilla, chairman of the 12,00(} member Mexican-American DE!mocrats of Texas, charged in a teiegram April23 that a disciplinary contract by the Torniilo pendent School District is racist. The pro posal requests that parents"discipline " their children if school officials notify them that their children spoke Spanish in school. "'Discipline' was a poor choice of words and I should have asked parents to'encourage' their children to speak English,"/)aid Superintendent Francis Brooks. The voluntary contract , mailed April22 to parents of the district's 370 students, aims to encourage children to learn English, he said. Ninety-five percent of the students in the small farming community, 35 miles south east of El Paso , are Mexican American. In the telegram, Bonilla charged Brooks with trying to force a wedge between His panic citizens and other Texans. "My comment to that," Brooks told Weekly Report, my w i fe's maiden name is Bonilla and if I'm going to drive a wedge, then she's going to be on the other side."
