WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Center for Immigration Integrity (CII) released the following statement in regards to the November 6, 2016 New York Times article, "Donald Trump's Extremist Supporters Feel Like Winners Either Way." The article is one of a series of reports highlighting the surge of extremist groups and their influence during this 2016 election cycle.
"What we're seeing in this election isn't just a surge in Latino voters, we're seeing historic turnout by Latinos and Asian-Americans directly linked to their rejection of this immigration policy. Also, college educated white voters are on pace to go Democratic for the first time in history for the very same reason. The Republican party cannot be a majority party in this country if they have anti-immigrant groups founded and funded by population control advocates, and eugenicists or race scientists such as NumbersUSA, FAIR--which has been labeled as a hate group--, the Center for Immigration Studies, and the KKK writing their immigration policy through their allies on the hill like Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressman Steve King. The GOP has to make a choice, and by allowing these groups a seat anywhere near the table, they're making the wrong one."
Donald Trump espouses the morally bankrupt and economically disastrous policies that these extremist groups advocate for and in doing so, he has disguised them as conservative voices when in fact they are the exact opposite. It is imperative that any discussion about immigration in our country not be conducted through an extremist lens. Trump and the mass deportation lobby's proposals of rounding up 11.3 million undocumented immigrants, revoking birthright citizenship and deporting those individuals as well, religious testing and moratoriums on legal immigration are losing policies.
The Center for Immigration Integrity encourages meaningful discussions about immigration with facts, credible voices, and the best interest of our country and families at the core. Find out more at http://www.immigrationintegrity.com/
