A February 2009 report by Southern Poverty Law Center examined John Tanton's written correspondence highlighted alleged connections between Tanton's immigration-reduction efforts and white supremacist, neo-Nazi and pro-eugenics leaders.
The introduction to the report reads:
FAIR, CIS and NumbersUSA are all part of a network of restrictionist organizations conceived and created by John Tanton, the “puppeteer” of the nativist movement and a man with deep racist roots. As the first article in this report shows, Tanton has for decades been at the heart of the white nationalist scene. He has met with leading white supremacists, promoted anti-Semitic ideas, and associated closely with the leaders of a eugenicist foundation once described by a leading newspaper as a “neo-Nazi organization.” He has made a series of racist statements about Latinos and worried that they were outbreeding whites. At one point, he wrote candidly that to maintain American culture,“a European-American majority” is required.
A 2002 Southern Poverty Law Center report listed 13 immigration-restriction groups, which they claim were founded and/or funded by Tanton.
American Immigration Control Foundation - AICF, 1983, funded
American Patrol/Voice of Citizens Together - 1992, funded
California Coalition for Immigration Reform - CCIR, 1994, funded
Californians for Population Stabilization - 1996, funded (founded separately in 1986)
Center for Immigration Studies - CIS, 1985, founded and funded
Federation for American Immigration Reform - FAIR, 1979, founded and funded
NumbersUSA - 1996, founded and funded
Population-Environment Balance - 1973, joined board in 1980
ProEnglish - 1994, founded and funded
ProjectUSA - 1999, funded
The Social Contract Press - 1990, founded and funded
U.S. English - 1983, founded and funded
U.S. Inc.- 1982, founded and funded

The SPLC is a joke. They slap the hate group label on anyone that doesn't agree with them.
Hmmm, just what is a "hate group"?
There is no legal definition of them. Only the definition provided by the SPLC, and it's whatever they want it to be.
The Southern Poverty Law Center is a private fund-raising organization and as such have no legal authority to designate anyone as anything. The SPLC is a self-appointed “watchdog” group and has absolutely no legal standing. It's not subject to any type of governmental oversight or review.
The SPLC is little more than a direct mail outfit that has raised heaps of money hyping hate crimes—real and imagined—while doing virtually nothing for the victims.
There is a reason that the SPLC hides behind spurious, meaningless labels, like “hate group,” and that's because if they actually accused these groups of “hate crimes” they would soon find themselves in court, charged with libel.
The fact that none of those groups have broken a single law means nothing to the SPLC.
SPLC's sole function in the immigration policy debate is to attempt to discredit any individual or organization that supports reductions in immigration and enforcement of immigration laws.
Any charges leveled by SPLC have long since been discredited as utterly specious.

HISPANIC LEADERS SPEAK OUT!
*Augustin Cebada*, Brown Berets; "Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth
Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We
have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your
duty to die .. Through love of having children, we are going to take over.
*Richard Alatorre*, Los Angeles City Council. "They're afraid we're going to
take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're
right. We will take them over ... We are here to stay."
*Excelsior*, the national newspaper of Mexico, "The American Southwest seems
to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single
*Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez*, University of Texas; "We have an aging
white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion
is in our population ... I love it. They are shitting in their pants with
fear. I love it."
*Art Torres*, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, "Remember
187--proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens--was
the last gasp of white America in California."
*Gloria Molina*, Los Angeles County Supervisor, "We are politicizing every
single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country
... I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, "I'm going to go out
there and vote because I want to pay them back."
*Mario Obledo*, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and
California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor
Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President
Bill Clinton, "California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who
doesn't like it should leave."
*Jose Pescador Osuna*, Mexican Consul General, "We are practicing 'La
Reconquista' in California."
*Professor Fernando Guerra*, Loyola Marymount University; "We need to avoid
a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos ... "
Are these just the words of a few extremists? Consider that we could fill up
many pages with such quotes. Also, consider that these are mainstream
*THE U.S. VS MEXICO*:
On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los
Angeles Coliseum. The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most
lived in this country. They booed during the National Anthem and U.S. flags
were held upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team
were insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and
trash were thrown at the U.S. players before and after the match. The coach
of the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most painful experience
I have ever had in this profession."

Did you read this portion of the article? It is great.
This study reveals the following findings:
Authorized workers are observed to be willing to accept wages that are 18 percent higher than unauthorized workers in the fruits, nuts, and vegetable sector and 22 percent higher in field crops and grains.
American citizen and legal resident farm workers work significantly longer hours compared with those who are unauthorized.
If unauthorized workers were replaced by authorized workers at the higher average wage rate authorized workers currently earn, farms in the fruits, nuts, and vegetable sector would experience a total labor cost increase of 10 percent, and the increase for the field crops and grains sector would be 6 percent.
Major crops like corn, soybean, and other cash grains would experience, on average, a 12 percent decrease in net farm income as a result of a 610 percent average wage increase.
The fruits, nuts, and vegetables sector would be impacted the most as the average net farm income would decrease by 12 percent, yet, the average commercial farm in this sector would still have earned an average net farm income higher than that of any other average commodity farm studied (without passing on any costs to customers).
All commodity farms including those that are impacted heavily, namely “other field crops” and “fruits, nuts, and vegetables,” would still have performed profitably given higher labor costs, according to their profit margin ratio from 19962008.*
Small commercial farms, which are likely to have lower profit margins than the “typical commercial” farms studied in this report, do not generally produce fruits, nuts, and vegetables and are less likely to employ unauthorized workers and would be less affected by the labor cost increase associated with these crops.
Rural residence farms would experience a lesser decline in net farm income (NFI) compared to commercial farms of the same category for all commodities studied due to their low labor requirements.
