Anti-Immigrant Groups Shed 'Mainstream' Charade; Embrace Racist Roots

After three decades of being handled with kids gloves by national media, the national network of anti-immigrant organizations is now confident enough that they are jettisoning any veneer of respectability. One such organization, Social Contract Press, showed just how extreme its views are on a recently released video produced by Imagine 2050.

Founded in 1968, the role of Social Contract Press (SCP) is to produce written materials for the larger anti-immigrant movement created by John Tanton in the 70s. Tanton, a retired ophthalmologist, is the founder of the modern anti-immigrant movement in the United States. A report recently released by the Southern Poverty Law Center further documents Tanton’s relationship with white nationalists in the United States and Europe.
