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.”

Read it all here.
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.

  1. That organization should have been shut down long ago. What a hateful liberal group that has no place in our societyl I’m glad they’re being sued.

  2. I spoke with them:
    Southern Poverty Lie Center, is the core of hate in America today. They actively seek to destroy the fundamental principals of the country by labeling anyone who disagrees with them as hateful. Please see their attacks on Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim and victim of female genital mutilation who rightfully, and with great scholarly acumen, speaks out against the most barbaric practices of Islamists. For this she is labeled a hater by SPLC. I’ve always voted democratic but in all my life have never seen a more divisive and socially damaging group than the SPLC. Shame on CREDO for elevating those silencing free speech with faux outrage mobs and social terrorism.

  3. Richard Cohen has some unspeakably twisted history, do a little digging here, just be prepared to be really disgusted.

  4. Good luck on your new project, Ann. You’ve done yeoman service on the MIGRANT MESS. Thanks for all you do to try to “hold people’s feet to the fire”! 🙂

  5. Categories can always change regarding who can be brought into the USA for resettlement. Many people from the Marshall Islands and South Pacific are being brought into the USA. Even though there is no conflict, it seems like there is now an alternate path which no longer involves VOLAG’s. I am sending in a link to a video about the newest wave of resettlement coming into the USA:
    Here are links about the homeless pacific islanders too:

    1. Thanks for sharing the youtube video. I had no idea about this form of legal migration to America. But, I had been writing often about the newest excuse for migration—climate change—at Refugee Resettlement Watch.
