FAIR’s Susan Tully Promotes Bigotry and Conspiracies on Radio Show

Susan Tully, the national field direc­tor of the DC-based anti-immigrant group Fed­er­a­tion for Amer­i­can Immi­gra­tion Reform (FAIR) voiced a num­ber of con­spir­acy the­o­ries and made many anti-immigrant com­ments dur­ing an inter­view with a right-wing radio show on Jan­u­ary 17, 2013. Tully spoke for over an hour on “The Ruthie Report,” a show hosted by Ruthie Hendrycks, who runs the anti-immigrant group Min­nesotans Seek­ing Immi­gra­tion Reform (MINNSIR).  On its web­site, FAIR lists MINNSIR as its local affil­i­ate in Minnesota.

Dur­ing the radio inter­view, Tully dis­par­aged DREAM Act-eligible stu­dents for what she called arro­gance and accused Demo­c­ra­tic politi­cians in Cal­i­for­nia of hav­ing ties to Mex­ico.…

Activists Use Extreme Rhetoric in Response to Obama’s Executive Action

A num­ber of anti-immigrant activists and groups used extreme rhetoric in response to Pres­i­dent Obama’s exec­u­tive action on immi­gra­tion, announced on Novem­ber 20. For exam­ple, William Gheen of the extreme anti-immigrant group Amer­i­cans for Legal Immi­gra­tion PAC (ALIPAC) con­nected the Mex­i­can Civil War with Obama’s exec­u­tive action in an inter­view with the conspiracy-oriented web­site World Net Daily. Gheen stated, “Obama’s choice of this date [Novem­ber 20 is Mex­i­can ‘Rev­o­lu­tion Day’ or Mex­i­can ‘Civil War Day’ which is the equiv­a­lent of America’s 4th of July] for his depar­ture from his Oath of Office and the U.S.…

Anti-Immigrant Groups Plan National Protests Against Children Fleeing Violence

In response to the human­i­tar­ian cri­sis at the bor­der, which has seen an influx of chil­dren flee­ing vio­lence in Cen­tral Amer­ica, a num­ber of anti-immigrant activists and right-wing groups are plan­ning two national days of protest on July 18 and 19 against “immi­gra­tion reform amnesty and the bor­der surge.”protest-immigration

The flyer for the event fea­tures the same extreme anti-immigrant rhetoric seen recently at protests in Mur­ri­eta, Cal­i­for­nia and Vas­sar, Michi­gan. The flyer claims that “ille­gal aliens with com­mu­ni­ca­ble dis­eases and con­di­tions such as tuber­cu­lo­sis, sca­bies and head lice are enter­ing our coun­try unabated.” It goes on to warn of a “very real secu­rity risk to Amer­i­cans from drug car­tels, gang mem­bers and terrorists.”

The orga­nizer of the pro­posed nation­wide events sched­uled for July 18 and 19 is Paul Arnold, an anti-immigrant activist and founder of the anti-immigrant group “Make Them Lis­ten.” Arnold is closely tied to the anti-immigrant front group Black Amer­i­can Lead­er­ship Alliance (BALA).…
