Msg to SPLC: For a change, be a part of the solution

Teacher with young studentsA border enforcement advocacy organization contends that a prominent, left-leaning legal group, by its own actions, is contributing to a problem in its own backyard … and needs to take responsibility for correcting it.

For decades, the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center has waged a smear campaign against numerous individuals and organizations that oppose its liberal agenda – including those that want reasonable limits on immigration and the enforcement of laws against illegal immigration.

But according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the effects of unchecked immigration have now "struck home": one-quarter of students enrolled in Montgomery County public schools don't speak English as their primary language – and the school system is struggling to come up with the resources to properly educate those students.

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for FAIR, argues that the SPLC is part of the problem.

"Anytime somebody tries to raise any questions about whether we should have excessive immigration, open borders, they try to shout them down," he says, referring to the SPLC. "They have huge amounts of money to get their message out there, and they're a big part of the problem."

OneNewsNow reported almost two years ago that the SPLC, at that time, was sitting on literally "millions of dollars" in an endowment – which is verifiable via the organization's own financial statements in late 2016.

Mehlman suggests the SPLC use some of its massive war chest to help out the local schools right there in its home town. "It's just pointing out that it's easy to sit and take positions on things, but there are consequences – and people have to pay for it," says the FAIR spokesman. "And the people who are preventing any kind of sensible solutions ought to be the first people that we look at."

Mehlman says while the SPLC can't be compelled to do anything, it can be marginalized and ignored by the public at large and called out for its actions.
