Breaking: Center for Immigration Studies Files Lawsuit Against the Southern Poverty Law Center

Good for CIS!

This should have happened long, long ago!

Here is the Breaking News today! (Hat tip: Joanne)

The Center for Immigration Studies has filed a civil lawsuit under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) against Richard Cohen, President of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) of Montgomery, Ala. The case is filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and seeks damages and an injunction prohibiting Cohen and his colleague, Heidi Beirich, who heads the group’s “hate group” project, from repeating the false claim that the Center is a hate group.

Ms. Beirich says they are working with these businesses to silence those they disagree with!

The case is brought pursuant to the federal RICO statute because Cohen and Beirich have been carrying out their scheme to destroy CIS through the SPLC “enterprise” for two years and will not stop without judicial intervention. “CIS does not hate immigrants or anyone else” said CIS Executive Director Mark Krikorian. “Our purpose is to make the case for a pro-immigrant policy of lower immigration – fewer immigrants but a warmer welcome for those admitted. SPLC attacks us simply because it disagrees with these policy views. SPLC and its leaders have every right to oppose our work on immigration, but they do not have the right to label us a hate group and suggest we are racists. The Center for Immigration Studies is fighting back against the SPLC smear campaign and its attempt to stifle debate through intimidation and name-calling.”

Readers may remember that last year the SPLC had to pay out nearly $4 million to settle a lawsuit when it listed Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer, on its list of “Anti-Muslim Extremists” (a list that included me!).

I wrote about it at RRW in June of last year.

The SPLC is infamous for its hate lists that include just regular Americans who are outspoken about their views on issues involving immigration.

The obvious goal of the organization is to influence the media (most media is suckered by them!) to write and report critically of the groups and people SPLC wants silenced.

The SPLC rakes in big bucks annually with their hate lists and scare tactics.

2016 Youtube video speaks volumes!

Now watch Richard Cohen and Heidi in action in advance of the November 2016 election of Donald Trump.

Tulsa, OK Media Suckered by Incomplete Data Peddled by ‘New American Economy’ Propagandists

Ha! What do you know!

I just mentioned the New American Economy shysters (Michael Bloomberg and his globalist gang!) the other day and how they promote the phony-baloney idea that a growing immigrant population brings economic boom times to struggling (are they really struggling?) American cities.

Does no one in the media ever question these slick propaganda reports?  https://www.cityoftulsa.org/media/6141/newamericaneconomytulsareport11-29-17.pdf

And, along comes this news: Tulsa’s NBC 2 News falls for the supposed “study” that says immigrants add billions annually to the Tulsa economy.

But, oopsy, apparently no one ever asks about what the COSTS are to the local economy.

This study is a joke.

Where are the costs to the local school system, the criminal justice system, the local health system, the welfare costs?

Are the “new Americans” putting pressure on the supply of housing needed for ‘old Americans?’

And, where are the figures for the remittance dollars being sent out to the third world and forever gone from the Oklahoma economy?

 

Here is 2 News:

Immigrants are 7 percent of Tulsa population, contribute nearly $4 billion

 

TULSA, Okla. — If it weren’t for immigrants, Tulsa’s population would be about 1/4 fewer than 10 years ago.

According to Christina Da Silva, Deputy Chief of Staff for the City of Tulsa, immigrants accounted for about 24 percent of the city’s growth.

Yippee! We are celebrating diversity too says Christina Da Silva.  https://www.publicradiotulsa.org/post/da-silva-named-deputy-chief-staff

It’s a group that continues to grow both in population and in diversity.

“The majority of them are coming from South and Central America, but we also have a fast growing Asian population. Many of them are coming from Bhurma (sic) as refugees,” Da Silva said.

About 6.7 percent of the population in the Tulsa metro area are immigrants, according to the “New Americans in Tulsa” report . In 2015, they contributed $3.8 billion to the Tulsa metro area’s gross domestic product.

Da Silva says immigrants are crucial to the local economy, as many take on jobs that are in high demand like construction. [Really, there are no Americans wanting construction jobs in Tulsa?—ed]

[….]

“As the city grows and becomes a more world-class city, what’s exciting is being able to celebrate the diversity,” Da Silva said.
