Top Trump administration immigration official to appear at hate group event

https://www.splcenter.org/news/2018/08/07/top-trump-administration-immigration-official-appear-hate-group-event

The head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is scheduled to appear next week at an event hosted by an anti-immigrant hate group that’s part of a network of organizations founded by white nationalist John Tanton.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) announced today that Lee Francis Cissna would participate in its “Immigration Newsmaker conversation” at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Aug. 15.

“It’s disgraceful that Francis Cissna would agree to put the weight of his office – and the U.S. government – behind a hate group that exists solely to vilify immigrants,” said Heidi Beirich, director of the SPLC’s Intelligence Project.

“But none of us should be surprised. It’s just one more example of the strong bond between this administration and far-right extremists who will stop at nothing to fuel rage and resentment against immigrants of color.”


They have become blatant in their intent to turn the US back to its all-white background. Oh, wait - it wasn't white to start with and has never been lily-white.

2. No way such people should be in charge of any government power

The law is the same and they should enforce it even handedly.

3. SPLC responds to attorney general's defense of anti-LGBT hate group, attack on SPLC

SPLC responds to attorney general's defense of anti-LGBT hate group, attack on SPLC

August 09, 2018

Richard Cohen
President

During his campaign, President Trump promised to be “a real friend” to the LGBT community. Yet, yesterday, his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, lauded the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a group that vilifies the LGBT community and promotes discrimination against it in the name of religion.

What’s more, Sessions attacked the SPLC for calling the ADF what it is – a hate group that would like to push the LGBT community into the closet if not into jail. Sessions’ words and actions reflect what is painfully obvious: Contrary to Trump’s campaign promise, his administration is no friend of the LGBT community.

The ADF richly deserves the hate group label. It supports the criminalization of sexual relations between consenting adults abroad. It opposes anti-bullying policies that provide protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It says that the American Convention on Human Rights should not prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. It promotes the myth that there is a link between homosexuality and pedophilia despite the fact that the weight of scientific authority has debunked the claim.

Linking the LGBT community to pedophilia as the ADF has done is not an expression of a religious belief. It is simply a dangerous and ugly falsehood. FBI hate crime data show that the LGBT community is the minority group most likely to be targeted for violent hate crimes. Demonizing the LGBT community and portraying it as a danger to children is likely to exacerbate the hate crime epidemic it is facing.

4. Disgraceful

It's amazing how DUMB the msm are legitimizing these f-ers.

Remember these names, FAIR, CIS, NumbersUSA. Hate, anti-immigrant groups.

CIS is the one that comes up with incredibly misleading, and fake "studies" that are cited all over the news.
