ACLU, SPLC, MALDEF, and the Mexican government

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), chapters of the ACLU, and chapters of the American Friends Service Committee are part of the new “Border Human Rights Working Group” [1]. At least three other groups in that coalition have links to the Mexican government.

This doesn’t mean that the SPLC, ACLU, MALDEF, and AFSC are directly collaborating with the Mexican government. However, their constant support for illegal immigration should be examined in the light of this new coalition. The reader is encouraged to contact any media source that reports on those groups’ position on immigration, suggesting that they disclose such links when covering the groups.
