The League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa has filed a lawsuit against Iowa’s new legislation that helps tighten election security and seeks to strengthen the integrity of the vote.

Joe Henry is a key figure within LULAC.

But he is also listed as a member of the Communist Party USA on various platforms.

Henry appeared in a 2018 video on the Communist Party USA’s website where he discussed the “fight for voting rights today.”

The webinar explores the “origins of voter suppression, federal remedies and the need for ongoing reforms including possible radical measures.”

The Community Party USA adopted a program in 2005 called “The Road To Socialism USA.”

“We cannot wish our way to socialism; the struggle to transform our country will of necessity pass through several stages of struggle, with each successive stage taking us closer to a direct struggle for working class power,” its website states.

“Since the early 1980s, the Republican Party, increasingly dominated by its extreme right wing, has controlled much of the national legislative agenda, while the leadership of the Democratic Party often ceded ground and initiative,” it continues.

The Communist Party USA also takes a shot at people who believe in Christianity.

“Although they have real material interests in opposing the basic program of reaction, Christian fundamentalists have been won over by the extreme right’s false appeals supposedly based on ‘family values’ and ‘human life,'” it says. “In reality, they oppose women’s reproductive rights (killing unborn babies), attack the civil liberties of LGBTQ communities, oppose all affirmative action to move toward equality by the racially and nationally oppressed and women, attack all social welfare programs and seek to undermine the separation of church and state.”
