In the 1960s George I. Sánchez entered the most highly engaged phase of his career with regard to national politics, particularly with the Political Association of Spanish-Speaking People (PASSO). He supported the election of John F. Kennedy and served his administration in an advisory capacity as a Latin American expert. He likewise served Lyndon Johnson's administration, though he disliked Johnson personally. He remained an integration purist by continuing to rail against various programs and policies, even when they were designed to help the disadvantaged, earning a reputation at the University of Texas and beyond for his willingness to protest. And he shaped Senator Ralph Yarborough's Bilingual Education Act while briefly being considered by Johnson for an appointment to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It was at the end of this period that Sánchez's health declined rapidly.
