Speakers at DC “March for Jobs” Rally Have Bashed Immigrants and Muslims

dc-march-for-jobs1On July 15, 2013, the Black Amer­i­can Lead­er­ship Alliance (BALA), an African Amer­i­can “front group” cre­ated by the anti-immigrant move­ment in the United States, will host a protest against immi­gra­tion reform in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

The “DC March for Jobs” will fea­ture a num­ber of speak­ers from BALA who claim to speak on behalf of the African-American com­mu­nity when in fact they are long-time anti-immigrant activists speak­ing on behalf of the anti-immigrant move­ment. A num­ber of politi­cians and other activists, many of whom have a his­tory of big­oted state­ments, are also slated to address the crowd:

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – Steve King is the leader of the anti-immigration reform group in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and has a long his­tory of mak­ing big­oted state­ments against immi­grants. King has char­ac­ter­ized immi­grants – both doc­u­mented and undoc­u­mented – as crim­i­nals and disease-carriers. He has spo­ken along­side lead­ers of bor­der vig­i­lante groups and advo­cated for a bor­der “wall” topped with elec­tri­fied wire to stop what he has called a “slow motion Holo­caust” of undoc­u­mented immi­gra­tion into the United States. In an address to the House King asserted that undoc­u­mented immi­gra­tion is “a slow-rolling, slow-motion ter­ror­ist attack on the United States.”

Michael Cut­lerCut­ler is a for­mer INS (now ICE) agent who is a senior fel­low at the Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant orga­ni­za­tion Cal­i­for­ni­ans for Pop­u­la­tion Sta­bi­liza­tion (CAPS) and a for­mer fel­low at the anti-immigrant group Cen­ter for Immi­gra­tion Stud­ies (CIS). In a July 3, 2013 op-ed in the Wash­ing­ton Times, Cut­ler claimed that “a sig­nif­i­cant per­cent­age of the illegal-alien pop­u­la­tion includes those who know they could not be law­fully admit­ted via the inspec­tions process that is designed to pre­vent the entry of aliens who have dan­ger­ous com­mu­ni­ca­ble dis­eases, severe men­tal ill­ness, seri­ous crim­i­nal his­to­ries, are fugi­tives from jus­tice in other coun­tries or have com­mit­ted war crimes or human rights vio­la­tions, or are spies or terrorists.”

Allen WestWest is a for­mer Rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the state of Florida who failed to win reelec­tion in 2012. West is closely tied to peo­ple in the anti-Muslim move­ment, pub­lish­ing blogs on sites such as Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs and fre­quently pre­sent­ing at events such as ACT! for America’s 2013 national con­fer­ence.  In a March 8, 2010 speech, West demo­nized Islam, stat­ing, Islam is a total­i­tar­ian theo­cratic polit­i­cal ide­ol­ogy, it is not a reli­gion. It has not been a reli­gion since 622 AD, and we need to have indi­vid­u­als that stand up and say that.”

Ken Crow – Crow is an Iowa res­i­dent and founder of Tea Party Com­mu­nity. In an undated post on the online forum Hub Pages, Crow wrote, “The only place in Amer­i­can soci­ety for MULTICULTURALISM is with our Native Amer­i­cans. They were here first and need to be treated with a very high level of respect. We should not be alter­ing Amer­ica for any­one else. But we are. We even have the Islamic faith­ful build­ing schools here and yes they are teach­ing their chil­dren to hate Amer­ica. They are teach­ing and preach­ing hatred of Amer­ica on Amer­i­can soil.” Crow has pub­lished numer­ous arti­cles on the vir­u­lently anti-Muslim site The United West.

Anti-Immigrant Umbrella Group U.S., Inc.’s New Website Reveals Organization’s Influence

The anti-immigrant umbrella orga­ni­za­tion, U.S., Inc., founded and run by racist John Tan­ton, the pri­mary archi­tect of the modern-day anti-immigrant move­ment, recently estab­lished a web­site for the first time in its 31-year his­tory. The web­site pro­vides fur­ther insight into how the orga­ni­za­tion works and the “projects” it runs.

In an in-depth inter­view about found­ing the anti-immigrant move­ment, Tan­ton dis­cussed why he cre­ated U.S., Inc.: Since I had been involved over the years in start­ing a num­ber of orga­ni­za­tions, each of them a sep­a­rate group which required sep­a­rate account­ing and sep­a­rate fil­ings with the IRS, I got the idea in about 1979 of set­ting up an umbrella foun­da­tion, out of which a num­ber of projects could be run.”

Many of these “projects” founded or nur­tured by Tan­ton devel­oped into some of the lead­ing anti-immigrant groups in the coun­try today, the most notable exam­ple being Num­ber­sUSA. NumbersUSA’s founder Roy Beck worked for Tan­ton for years as the Wash­ing­ton edi­tor of Tanton’s anti-immigrant jour­nal The Social Con­tract (TSC). Beck founded Num­ber­sUSA in 1996/1997 and the group remained under U.S. Inc.’s umbrella until 2002, when it broke off and became an inde­pen­dent organization.

Another “project” for­merly under the U.S., Inc. umbrella was U.S. Eng­lish, a group devoted to mak­ing Eng­lish the offi­cial lan­guage of the United States. Tan­ton resigned as chair­man from U.S. Eng­lish after a news­pa­per revealed a racially charged memo penned by Tan­ton ask­ing ques­tions like “will blacks be able to improve (or even main­tain) their posi­tion on the face of the Latin onslaught?” and “will Latin Amer­i­can migrants bring with them the tra­di­tion of the mor­dida (bribe)?”

U.S., Inc.’s web­site high­lights its cur­rent “projects,” includ­ing Tanton’s pub­lish­ing house, the Social Con­tract Press, which pub­lishes racist books, such as Jean Raspail’s Camp of the Saints, and sells books by racists such as Sam Fran­cis, Wayne Lut­ton and Peter Brimelow.  Another U.S., Inc. project is the anti-immigrant group Pro­Eng­lish. Bob Van­der­voort, ProEnglish’s exec­u­tive direc­tor, is report­edly the for­mer head of the white suprema­cist group Chicagoland Friends of Amer­i­can Renais­sance, a local chap­ter of the white suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tion Amer­i­can Renais­sance.

In addi­tion, U.S., Inc.’s web­site reveals the organization’s finan­cial doc­u­ments. Each year, it grants funds to anti-immigrant orga­ni­za­tions around the coun­try. Accord­ing to its finan­cial state­ments, U.S., Inc. pro­vided fund­ing for Florid­i­ans for Immi­gra­tion Enforce­ment, Cal­i­for­ni­ans for Pop­u­la­tion Sta­bi­liza­tion and 9/11 Fam­i­lies for a Secure Amer­ica in 2011.

U.S. Inc.’s new site pro­vides fur­ther evi­dence of its impor­tance to the anti-immigrant move­ment. In the past, the umbrella orga­ni­za­tion devel­oped bour­geon­ing anti-immigrant groups and helped them get on their feet; today it con­tin­ues to fund and sup­port well-established anti-immigrant groups around the country.

New “Environmentalist” Book, Life on the Brink, Features Anti-Immigrant Writers

Phil Cafaro

Life on the Brink: Envi­ron­men­tal­ists Con­front Over­pop­u­la­tion, a book released in Decem­ber 2012, fea­tures essay­ists that have strong ties to the anti-immigrant move­ment, a detail that is miss­ing from the authors’ bios.

Phil Cafaro, pres­i­dent of the DC-based anti-immigrant group Pro­gres­sives for Immi­gra­tion Reform (PFIR), and Eileen Crist, an envi­ron­men­tal sci­ences pro­fes­sor at Vir­ginia Tech, co-edited the book. It con­tains many essays that argue for reduc­ing immi­gra­tion for envi­ron­men­tal rea­sons. This argu­ment is one of the key themes pro­moted by the anti-immigrant move­ment in the United States.

Essay­ists in the book include:

Phil Cafaro – co-editor of the book and pres­i­dent of PFIR. Cafaro is a for­mer fel­low for the DC-based anti-immigrant group Cen­ter for Immi­gra­tion Stud­ies (CIS). In 2010, Cafaro wrote two blogs for the Vir­ginia based anti-immigrant group Num­ber­sUSA.

Al Bartlett – a Uni­ver­sity of Col­orado emer­i­tus pro­fes­sor and friend of John Tan­ton, the racist founder of the mod­ern day anti-immigrant move­ment. To date, Bartlett has pub­lished ten arti­cles, dat­ing back to 1995, in Tanton’s quar­terly jour­nal, The Social Con­tract (TSC). TSC has pub­lished the writ­ings of known white suprema­cists such as Sam Fran­cis and Jared Tay­lor.

Don Wee­den –head of the Wee­den Foun­da­tion, a group that has donated hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars to anti-immigrant groups through­out the years. Wee­den is also an “inde­pen­dent advi­sor” for Num­ber­sUSA. CIS has invited Wee­den to speak on many panel dis­cus­sions orga­nized by the group over the years.

Leon Kolankiewicz – a senior writ­ing fel­low for the Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant group Cal­i­for­ni­ans for Pop­u­la­tion Sta­bi­liza­tion (CAPS). Over a half dozen arti­cles by Kolankiewicz appear in issues of TSC, dat­ing back to 2001. He has pub­lished numer­ous reports for both CIS and Num­ber­sUSA in the past. Kolankiewicz sits on the advi­sory boards of CAPS and PFIR and is also the for­mer vice-president of the anti-immigrant group Car­ry­ing Capac­ity Net­work, based in San Francisco.

Richard Lamm– the for­mer gov­er­nor of Col­orado and a for­mer mem­ber of Fed­er­a­tion for Amer­i­can Immi­gra­tion (FAIR)’s board. He cur­rently sits on   FAIR’s advi­sory board as well as the advi­sory boards of CAPS and PFIR. Lamm also co-edited a report for CIS in 2001 and is pub­lished in two issues of TSC. He is also a close friend of Tanton’s.

William Ryer­son – for­mer pres­i­dent of PFIR and for­mer advi­sory board mem­ber of CAPS. He cur­rently heads two pop­u­la­tion aware­ness groups, the Vermont-based Pop­u­la­tion Media Cen­ter and the DC-based Pop­u­la­tion Insti­tute. Ryer­son is also a con­trib­u­tor to TSC.
