@FAIRImmigration, founded by Dr. John Tanton, is a mouthpiece of white nationalist rhetoric. But it's more than that: it injects its foul ideology into actual policy.

One (latest) example: Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. Read what a federal judge found:

On p29 of the decision, the Court gives yet another example of Acting Secy Elaine Duke, who is supposed to make a dispassionate assessment of conditions on the ground in determining TPS eligibility, said "this conclusion [to end TPS] is the result of an America first view..."

Dehumanizing language - akin to "animals." Conflating gangs with Latinos. (Old trick - like terrorists and Muslims. There's a lot of cross-pollination between the anti-immigrant and Islamophobia industries...I love being an immigration lawyer who happens to be Muslim!)

Media director Ira Mehlman wrote this in 2017:…

(He also thinks I'm a paid operative of the Qatari government because I did a video on @ajplus calling out FAIR as a WN outfit)
All of a sudden, the same talking point ("T" for "temporary"!) starts appearing in the White House:…

Wonder where they got it from.
FAIR's sister (yet competitor) organization @CIS_org has also been clamoring for an end to TPS...

From an April 2016 "wishlist" of things the "next President" could do on immigration:
This is why I'm suing to unseal the papers of John Tanton. @FAIRImmigration needs to be exposed for the white nationalist mouthpiece that it is. FAIR has gone to some lengths to distance themselves from their shadowy, eugenicist founder. But we see you.…
