They are a front for fundraising for the socialists and “settling immigrants” in NY sanctuary state.
The Internal Revenue Service revoked Make the Road Action Fund’s tax-exempt status in 2012 after the organization failed to file the required 990 form for three consecutive years, the agency’s records show. The fund, which says it discovered the situation several days before Crain’s inquired about it Monday, could face tens of thousands of dollars in federal, state and New York City tax liabilities as a result.
Make the Road Action Fund is the political arm of Make the Road, a registered charity that receives subsidies from the city, state and federal governments to provide services for immigrants.
The parent organization, despite its ties to unions and progressive groups, is supposed to abstain from political activity such as endorsing candidates. Make the Road Action Fund, which has no such restriction, has organized and canvassed on behalf of a number of candidates and policy proposals, and has played a substantial role in New York’s recent tilt toward the left.
