Funders Of The Anti-Immigrant Movement

The major anti-immigrant groups in the United States receive the bulk of their dona­tions from foun­da­tions with close ties to the move­ment itself as well as foun­da­tions with a his­tory of fund­ing right-wing orga­ni­za­tions. The extreme anti-immigrant group Fed­er­a­tion for Amer­i­can Immi­gra­tion Reform (FAIR), the Cen­ter for Immi­gra­tion Stud­ies (CIS) and Num­ber­sUSA ben­e­fit the most from these dona­tions.  They boast annual bud­gets in the mil­lions of dol­lars, which are used to pro­mote their anti-immigrant agenda of block­ing pro-immigrant leg­is­la­tion, draft­ing and pro­mot­ing anti-immigrant leg­is­la­tion and demo­niz­ing immigrants.colcom-foundation-weeden-foundation

With con­tin­ued sup­port from the Pittsburg-based Col­com Foun­da­tion, the Penn­syl­va­nia and Florida-based Scaife Foun­da­tions and the New York-based Wee­den Foun­da­tion, anti-immigrant groups can sus­tain and pro­mote their nativist agenda. Despite the many exam­ples of big­otry and nativism stem­ming from the anti-immigrant groups they fund, these foun­da­tions show no signs of cur­tail­ing their funding.
