OPINION – Readers write

Enforcing immigration law is not anti-immigration

In coverage of a public panel discussion on the 287(g) program in Gwinnett County in which I participated, the AJC added that the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center has listed The Dustin Inman Society as an “anti-immigrant hate group.” This ridiculous smear from the far-left SPLC was laughable to immigrants who support our donation-driven effort to see American immigration laws enforced, including immigrants on our board – and my adopted sister.

The AJC didn’t note that the SPLC made this false categorization in the same time frame it began lobbying against legislation aimed at illegal immigration that we support in the Georgia Capitol. What a handy way to oppress political opposition.

The AJC also alluded to my writing against illegal immigration as “past anti-immigrant rhetoric” despite constant reminders that taking a pro-enforcement position on immigration is not “anti-immigrant”.

The AJC should do a much better job on immigration reporting.
