NPR's Alex Chadwick and Slate political blogger Mickey Kaus talk with Dr. Velia Garcia, chair of la Raza studies at San Francisco State University, about the student organization seen by critics as advocating racial separation. Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, a leading Democrat in the recall race to oust California Gov. Gray Davis from office, has past ties with MEChA. The group has supported transferring control of much of the Southwest United States back to Mexico.
