La Voz de Aztlan ("The Voice of Aztlán") is an advocacy website purportedly reflecting opinion on behalf of Mexican and Mexican-Americans in the U.S. Southwest and in Mexico.[1]

The website's publisher is Hector Carreon, a "graduate in Civil Engineering from California State University at Long Beach where he was a founding member of the Society of Mexican-American Engineers and Scientists (MAES)." According to the website, Carreon is a veteran of the Vietnam War, having served in the U.S Army's 2nd Armored Division, and is also "a graduate of the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund's Advanced Leadership Program"[2]

Ernesto Cienfuegos is the editor in chief, Miroslava Flores is a staff writer.[3] The webmaster is Roberto Cruz.

The website publishes news articles, commentary, and opinion pieces on immigration, the U.S.-Mexico border and the anti-illegal immigration movement.

Controversy[edit]

According to the Anti-Defamation League and the SPLC, La Voz de Aztlán is antisemitic. La Voz de Aztlán is published by the Nation of Aztlán, a group the Anti-Defamation League also labels as antisemitic.[4] The publisher denies having "any leadership position within the Nation of Aztlan."[5]

Voz de Aztlán editorials contain statements such as, "The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are offshoots of the Rothschild Jewish Banking Dynasty. International Jews also control most of the World Media which they utilize to brainwash the masses".[6] When a La Voz de Aztlán editorial criticizes a Jew, his ethnicity is often emphasized.[7]

Voz de Aztlán presents a translation of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which is introduced in Spanish as evidence of a Jewish plan for world domination.[8] In a statement made on the death of Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon in the space shuttle Columbia disaster, Carréon called the Jews, "the curse of mankind since the beginning of written history" and a threat of "annihilation of our modern global civilization".[9]
