Our partners over at FIRM, gave us this good laugh today. Apparently, the sham policy institute, Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) came out with a report this week blaming global warming on immigration.
For those that don't know, CIS is an offshoot of the anti-immigration organization, Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Just when you thought FAIR's scapegoating couldn't get any more ridiculous, they go and surprise us.
In response to the CIS "report", Paco Fabián, Communications Director of America's Voice had this to say.
“We eagerly await the next CIS report, blaming immigrants for high gas prices, steroids in baseball, and the decline of the network sitcom. No matter the day, no matter the subject, their one-size-fits-all approach to policymaking conveniently blames immigration for all of society’s ills. If CIS was so concerned about the environment, you’d think they wouldn’t have wasted the paper to print this drivel. Wrapping anti-immigrant sentiment in pseudo-academic research doesn’t disguise the extreme absurdity and agenda of CIS.”Definitely well said.
