(CHICAGO, IL) – The Center for New Community today launched Who’s Behind the Plot Against DACA, an online hub hosting exhaustive research exposing the deep ties between anti-immigrant organizations that have links to racist eugenics and forced sterilization efforts, including the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), NumbersUSA, and the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), hardline anti-immigrant federal and state elected officials, and the network of multimillionaire donors who fund their anti-immigrant advocacy. In the wake of the horrifying violence from white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, exposing these ties between the organized anti-immigrant movement and white nationalists is even more urgent.
The site, available at plotagainstdaca.com, is the first in-depth and interactive visual representation of the organized anti-immigrant movement. It hosts one of the most comprehensive online collections of information about the links between anti-immigrant organizations and their advocacy for fringe racist policies targeting immigrants and refugees.
Said Lindsay Schubiner of the Center for New Community:
A network of deeply racist, anti-immigrant groups is behind the cynical attacks on DACA that we are witnessing today. These groups have a shared history rooted in white nationalism and continue to advocate for abhorrent policies designed to expand a white majority in the United States,” “We hope this new free and publicly available resource will shine a bright light on the racist roots of the organized anti-immigrant movement and their support for dangerous policies that would be devastating to communities across the country.
