While the voters show what they feelings on immigration are many in our local governments are being engulfed by a black which has them proposing hateful immigration laws. Kansas is the latest state to jump on board and apparently the anti-immigrant sentiment is being seen in television ads by a group called the Coalition for the Future American Worker. Smelling opportunity, another of Tanton’s super (hate) groups is apparently trying to help this anti-migrant legislation along in Kansas.
Illegal Immigration Ad Draws Fire
UPDATED: 6:50 pm CST February 28, 2008
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A local civil rights leader said some anti-illegal immigration commercials on TV are trying to stir up trouble.
The ads have been airing in Kansas City and on KMBC-TV for several weeks. The commercial comes from a group called the Coalition for the Future American Worker.
The ad claims illegal immigration hurts the job prospects for black men.
Here’s a writeup from Soutern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog about the Coalition for the Future American Worker which is apparently just another FAIR group.
The connection to Tanton (founder of FAIR), who is the founder of America’s modern anti-immigration movement, is particularly problematic given his history of anti-Latino bigotry. Tanton has questioned whether Latinos can be educated to the level of other races and he endorses and publishes the racist novel Camp of the Saints. (For a description of the book’s racism, see here.)
