Wingnuts Furious That Illegal Messican Band La Santa Cecilia Won Grammy
You were probably thinking we were done talking about the Grammys. We thought we were also, too, but that was before we learned that Breitbart was having a breathless poutrage about the Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album award going to La Santa Cecilia, which counts among its members a (gasp!) undocumented immigrant.
Jose “Pepe” Carlos, the accordion player, is a "DREAMer." He was brought to the United States when he was six by his parents when they came into the country illegally.
The group formed in 2005 by lead singer Marisol [sic] Hernandez and Miguel Ramirez to "blend ethnicities and identities uniquely forged in multicultural Los Angeles," and has used pop culture to push for comprehensive immigration reform, even writing a song against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
