23. She's been spreading hate for a long time
http://www.thenation.com/doc/20020304/berkowitz20020221
Barbara Coe is no anti-immigration amateur. Since the mid-1990s, according to the Chicago-based Center for New Community (CNC), an organization that monitors the activities of white supremacist organizations, Coe's California Coalition for Immigration Reform has been "the leading grassroots anti-immigrant organization in the country...with an impact that has extended beyond the borders of California to reach across the country." CCIR has been able to "find allies in elected office even while maintaining a firm footing in the politics of white supremacy."

For years, CCIR has been working with a number of anti-immigrant white supremacist organizations. The Orange County Register pointed out that Coe "works closely" with Glenn Spencer, leader of the Sherman Oaks-based American Patrol and Voice of Citizens Together. American Patrol and Voices of Citizens Together, along with other groups including the White Aryan Resistance, is one of more than 600 organizations on a list of "active hate groups" compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Spencer's contribution includes the production of videos warning about a vast Mexican conspiracy to take over the Southwest.

Coe insists that her group has been falsely accused: "We know we're not . We both know what we are, who we are and who we represent," she told the Register. She also claims that her "efforts are not racially motivated or targeted at Mexican immigrants."

In 1996, however, Coe told the Washington Times: "Are we shocked by the demands that Latinos be given instant citizenship privileges... These are the same legal and illegal immigrants who bleed our welfare and medical care programs dry for benefits that citizens are denied, destroy our educational system, and laugh at our judicial system while they grab their welfare checks with one hand, deal drugs with the other, and their gangs savagely murder our citizens."


Another view into her hate-filled mind is here:

Patrick McHugh of the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which purports to be a squeaky clean think tank that rejects racism, was there pressing the flesh along with Barbara Coe, head of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform, who repeatedly referred to Mexicans as she has for years as "savages."

She is someone who has been at the forefront of anti-immigration legislation for years.
And if people want to see what is at the core this movement, they should look at what she's done, who she's linked with and what that means.
