Are Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA, and Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) Really Playing the GOP for a Bunch of Suckers? SPIES IN THE CAMP - Part II – FAIR

FAIR was founded in 1979 by Dr. John Tanton. John Tanton is an admitted environmentalist. In the 1960’s and 70’s Tanton served in high ranking positions in Environmentalist organizations such as The Sierra Club and the Michigan Natural Areas Council. Tanton’s concern for the environment led him to advocate “Family Planning” (a.k.a., ABORTION) as means of population control. From 1965 to 1971 Tanton served as organizer and President of Northern Michigan PLANNED PARENTHOOD. John Tanton’s concern for the environment has also fueled his desire to curb immigration.

Below are the backgrounds of FAIR’s Board of Directors and National Board of Advisors. These are some of FAIR’s most strident environmentalists and abortion advocates:

Is FAIR Really Playing the GOP for a Bunch of Suckers?

“In a 2001 letter by Tanton [...] he laid out his idea to ‘move the battle lines on the immigration question in our favor’ by convincing Republican lawmakers that ‘massive immigration imperils their political future.’ The goal, he wrote, was to ‘change Republicans’ perception of immigration so that when they encounter the word “immigrant,” their reaction is “Democrat.”’ Organizers of the campaign against the [anti-immigration] groups found the letter at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library, which houses Tanton’s papers.” - Peter Wallsten, the Washington Post
