Why is Marco Rubio taking DREAM Act marching orders by a man who founded Michigan Planned Parenthood?Thursday, April 12th, 2012
Why is the pro life hypocrite Senator Marco Rubio taking DREAM Act marching orders from the likes of the John Tanton network? John Tanton was the organizer and President of the Northern Michigan Planned Parenthood Association. John Tanton not only funds abortion clinics across the globe, John Tanton also has an axe to grind against Catholicism. It’s no wonder Tanton loathes the Catholic church (many Latinos are members of the Catholic Church) because the Pope of Rome is an avid pro life messenger.
From Journalist Pilar Marrero:
… In other words, Rubio opposes offering the youngsters, many of whom are already graduate and post graduate students, the kind of status that would allow them to eventually sponsor immediate family members, much like Rubio’s parents in Cuba were sponsored by his auntie in Florida back in 1956, before Fidel Castro came to power. … The concept of keeping citizenship out of reach for legalized immigrants it’s actually the brainchild of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) a research organization that is part of the same lobbying group that pushed the “attrition thru enforcement” concept and the legal push behind the local and state anti immigration laws such as SB1070, the Arizona Law, that will soon be argued in front of the Supreme Court. CIS, FAIR and the Immigration Reform Law Institute are all part of the same network of organizations in Washington that want to limit not illegal, but LEGAL immigration.
Who is behind these unconstitutional laws?
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is an anti-immigration ‘movement,’ that began by one man, John Tanton. Tanton was the organizer and President of the Northern Michigan Planned Parenthood Association between 1965-1971, and in 1975 he wrote The Case for Passive Eugenics where his letters and memos are a public collection at the Bentley Historical Library. (1) Tanton has clear connections to Pioneer Fund and Numbers USA where Pioneer Fund’s eugenic ideas (selective breeding of humans) supported a variety of institutions that legitimize race “science”, including the journal Mankind Quarterly, which today is published by long-time eugenicist, anti-Semite and Pioneer grant recipient Roger Pearson. (2) According to the Wall Street Journal, Jason Riley states that by Dr. Tanton’s own reckoning, FAIR has received more than $1.5 million from the Pioneer Fund, a white-supremacist outfit devoted to racial purity through eugenics. Board members of FAIR actively promote the sterilization of Third World women for the purposes of reducing U.S. immigration prospects. And if anything disturbs the good doctor more than those Latin American hordes crossing the Rio Grande, it’s the likelihood that most of them are Catholic, or so he once told a Reuters reporter. (3) As the founder and publisher of Social Contract Press, Tanton has published books that have helped shaped a nationalist ideology focused on the threat of immigrants to the white…while ignoring research that points to the positive contributions of immigrants.

FAIR and Kris Kobach are not “conservative”
FAIR purports to be “conservative” but its founder and some of its board members have been deeply involved with Planned Parenthood for decades. In fact, FAIR is a contributor to Planned Parenthood that openly provides for abortions in minority communities across the nation. Furthermore, FAIR has no respect for states’ rights as they seek to impose unconstitutional laws on states and strain their budgets defending indefensible laws.
FAIR and Kris Kobach have needlessly cost taxpayers in states and small communities across the nation millions of dollars. They do not support the Constitution. They are not Pro-Life. They are not conservative. There is a better way, a constitutional way, and we, at Somos Republicans, are leading the way. Bills written by FAIR are both unconstitutional and costly — There is a better way!
