USDA staffers: 'The pilgrims were illegal aliens!'

A watchdog organization has released video footage of USDA staffers who were forced to attend "cultural sensitivity" training, bang on tables and chant, "The pilgrims were illegal aliens!"

From Judicial Watch:
The sensitivity training sessions, described as “a huge expense” by diversity awareness trainer and self-described “citizen of the world” Samuel Betances, were held on USDA premises. The diversity event is apparently part of what USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack described in a memo sent to all agency employees as a “new era of Civil Rights” and “a broader effort towards cultural transformation at USDA.” In 2011 and 2012, the USDA paid Betances and his firm nearly $200,000 for their part in the “cultural transformation” program.
The organization has the videos here.

Meanwhile, the USDA has been working to dispel undocumented immigrants' concerns that going on food stamps will hurt their chances of becoming U.S. citizens. (HT: Drudge)
