CIS Forwards Racist VDARE Article Lambasting “Mexifornia” | IMAGINE 2050

As has been common in the past, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) again lifted its veil of legitimacy to expose some of the Tanton Network’s connections to some of its more unabashedly white nationalist cohorts. This past Friday, July 7, CIS sent out one of it mass emailings of prepared clusters of recent news articles and media. Always quite organized, one only needed to scan to article #20 of this particular email cluster, titled “Immigration Opinions,” to find a piece by Brenda Walker.

The very-first-word of Walker’s article — “Mexifornia” — speaks volumes about CIS’s and VDARE’s respective veneers of legitimacy. (Walker has an essay in the Spring 2012 issue of John Tanton’s white nationalist publication, The Social Contract Journal, “Mexico-Style Corruption Infests Texas.”)

Once upon a time, CIS regularly forwarded VDARE articles, though not so much as of late.

What’s especially damning about last Friday’s email is that the first 14 of the 26 listed articles were recently penned by CIS’s own writers, who have a history of turning up in bigoted publications. The first 6 pieces are from CIS’s executive director since 1995, Mark Krikorian (pictured right), who has previously been quoted with the following rather unsavory remarks:

On April 27 2011, Mark Krikorian wrote an article on National Review where he called Muslims a “vicious people.”

After the tragedy and horror of the earthquake in Haiti at the beginning of 2010, Krikorian stated, “my guess is that Haiti’s so screwed up because it wasn’t colonized long enough.”

In 2009, Mark Krikorian lamented the pronunciation of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s last name, stating, “While in the past there may well have been too much social pressure for what sociologists call Anglo-conformity, now there isn’t enough.”
