Muslim Sues Latino Caucus for Not Giving Her Latino Scholarship


Is it Islamophobia? Do you even have to ask? Everything is Islamophobia.

A Muslim student with a Muslim father and Latino mother is suing the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus Foundation (ILLCF) for not giving her a scholarship even though she was a mediocre student and was accused of faking a letter of recommendation.

So Islamophobia, obviously.

Elusta says she attended college at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) from 2011 to 2014, and was scheduled to graduate in three years with a 3.32 grade point average.

I don’t even understand what that means. How could she know her grade point average in 3 years? And since when does 3.32 net you a scholarship?

Anyway she claims that the head of ILLCF told her to meet him for drinks. Which she refused. So she told her Muslim father on him and that led to a loss of funding.

“In December 2013, plaintiff complaint to Mr. Jesse Ruiz, the ILLCF attorney, regarding Mr. Gonzalez’s conduct. She stated that she is a Muslim and cannot go out drinking and have sexual relations with men. Mr. Ruiz then told her that Muslims are not allowed to apply for his scholarship because it is only for Hispanics; then plaintiff informed him that her mother is Hispanic; plaintiff did not receive the scholarship.”

Elusta, like most children of Muslim men, clearly identifies as Muslim, not Hispanic. But like a lot of Muslim settlers in the US, finds it useful to use minority protective coloration when convenient.

Did this even happen. Who knows… because…

Several months later, Ruiz allegedly received an email accusing her of falsifying a letter of recommendation sent to the School of Nursing at UIC, which Ruiz hoped to attend after earning her undergraduate degree.

“Plaintiff never wrote this letter of recommendation; and she does know the alleged author, Linda Hull, who allegedly had plaintiff as a student in a microbiology class. Plaintiff had obtained the required letter of recommendation from one of her professors,” Elusta says.

“Plaintiff had planned to attend graduate school immediately after graduation; and then work as a teacher.

“ILLCF’s breach of contract has caused severe pain and suffering, including constant anxiety, inability to sleep or eat, constant crying, and a lack of desire to socialize,” according to the complaint.

The last names seem to be a bit confused here, but the relevant allegation involves the fake letter of recommendation. If it was fake then the Islamophobia allegations are a petty distraction.

    Just the beginning of what we will reap for allowing the importation of these slime.

    “Muslim father and Latino mother.”

    “muslim” is not an ethnicity. Identifying her father as Muslim tells us nothing about his ethnic background.

    “Elusta, like most children of Muslim men, clearly identifies as Muslim, not Hispanic.”

    One can easily identify as both since they are two separate things.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      While Muslims is not an ethnicity, it’s a good bet that she identifies with her father’s race.

      Elusta is usually an Arab name.

      • David

        Okay, that makes more sense.

        • Naem M.

          You can have Arabic name and still be not an Arab. There are many Blacks and Asians with the name Daniel. Does that mean they identify with Whites? NO!. A Muslim is a person who follows the religion of Islam, there are plenty of Whites, Blacks, Asians, Latinos, and Native Americans who are Muslims. Being a Muslim doesn’t through out from your ethnicity. Heck, this young woman can be a Buddhist for all she want. She will stick be half Hispanic.

    Too funny. But you cannot blame her for doing what odumbo does daily. He was born of a white women, reared by whites and yet he is black. Seems Holder, Jarret, et al suffer the same affliction.

    Are “white Hispanics” allowed to apply …?

    • De Doc

      LOL! Enter George Zimmerman, eh?

      That reminds me of a gal I dated many years ago, who was from Spain. She naively checked the ‘Hispanic’ box on her various scholarship applications, only to be roundly rejected, because, those European folk directly from the lands once known as Hispania, need not apply. What a sick joke!

      • US_Patriot1776

        Of course, her ‘white privilege’ doesn’t fit the Libs’ ‘racial propaganda’ that they are desperately attempting to agitate.

  • De Doc

    You gotta love stories like this. An apparent falsified letter of rec was discovered and now all the sudden this kid complains of Islamophobia. Fortunately, because of the nature of the scholarship, she can’t complain about racism, though the burden of proof still lies with her to prove the Latino ancestry.

    On the 3.32 GPA – for Hispanics that’s probably considered good enough for most scholarships, but of course each scholarship program would have its own particular criteria for academic achievement for applicants.

    It’s worth a shot. There’s got to be a few liberal courts who would bend.

  • Crystal Rose

    Para 1 says it all….love it. Seeing protected political classes gnawing and clawing at each other. Remember, there’s only so much free sh*t to go around to you freeloaders.

    Hey, cut her some slack. There was no WASP caucus to sue.
