New York City
City (pop., 2000: 8,008,278), southeastern New York, at the mouth of the Hudson River. The largest city in the U.S. , is coming under close scrutiny for some very troubling fund dispersals. In November, the National Legal and Policy Center The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that monitors and reports on the ethics of public officials, supporters of liberal causes, and labor unions in the United States. , a watchdog group based in Falls Church, Virginia Falls Church is an independent city in Virginia, United States. The population was 10,377 at the 2000 census. This city is a part of the Washington Metropolitan Area. A much larger number of people reside in Greater Falls Church , charged that funds from a $171,000 grant from the September 11th Fund to the Legal Aid Society of New York were being used to provide free legal assistance to Arabs detained after the attack on immigration violations. The Fund emphatically denies the accusation, stating in a November 9th press release: "The claim that The September 11th Fund grant to the Legal Aid Society -- to help victims of the tragedy -- is instead being used to defend those accused of perpetrating the crime is completely false. All September 11th Fund grants are limited to helping the victims, their families and affected communities."
Details concerning what precisely the Legal Aid Society (LAS) has used the funds in question for are still a bit fuzzy. However, in light of the past record of LAS and other grantees who have shared in the Fund's largesse, there is genuine cause for concern. The president and attorney-in-chief at LAS is Daniel L. Greenberg, past president of New York City Chapter of the ultra-subversive National Lawyers Guild (NLG). The NLG, which was identified by a congressional committee as "the foremost legal bulwark of the Communist Party," has indeed been the prime legal champion of terrorists in the courts.

She remains active with Red Chinese front groups and maintains close contacts with Beijing officials. The extremists who staff the AALDEF have included among their ranks hardcore Reds from the Chinese Progressive Association (C PA), which, like the AAE, is a spinoff from the Communist Workers Party. These CPA loyalists call themselves "Red Guards" and "Boxers" and have distinguished themselves as street thugs in roughing up anti-Beijing demonstrators. They have also been visibly associated with China's consulate and UN officials in New York City.
