William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, one of the key organizers of this month’s sparsely attended but prominently endorsed anti-immigrant protests, warned WorldNetDaily today that if President Obama were to issue an executive order preventing the deportation of some undocumented immigrants, that would amount to instituting “martial law” and Americans would face a choice between “subjugation” and actions that are “outside the purview of my peaceful and political efforts.” Gheen frequently hints that “ illegal and violent...

William Gheen and Alex Jones: Obama Using Obamaphones To Recruit Central American Kids To Become Child Soldiers

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC president William Gheen joined conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his “Infowars” program yesterday to discuss Gheen’s pathetic nationwide rallies against Central American children fleeing to the southern border. In just a few minutes, the two conspiracy-theory-minded activists combined their mental powers to develop a grand theory that President Obama is luring Central American kids with “Obamaphones” to recruit them to be child soldiers in a private army that will confiscate guns and crack down “in a totalitarian fashion...

In an interview with the Tea Party News Network earlier this month, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen warned that undocumented immigrants are more dangerous than “anything that Al Qaeda could blow up, short of a nuclear detonation.” Speaking with TPNN host Larry Altman on July 8, Gheen said that undocumented immigrants would “displace millions of American workers, cost untold Americans their lives, cost untold Americans their families and their homes and their mortgage payments” and warned that American children will be turned away from college “because...

Yesterday, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen explained the abysmal turnout at a string of anti-immigrant rallies that took place over the weekend by alleging that the “liberal media” promoted violence against opponents of immigration reform. In an appearance on former congressman Ernest Istook’s radio show “Insights, Issues & Istook,” Gheen said journalists put conservatives “in danger of physical assault or harm” and attempted to issue a “threat of implied violence against you or your family members or your children in school.”...

For weeks now, anti-immigrant groups have been hyping a “National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge,” meant to be two days of protests in cities across the country in reaction to the Central American children who are coming to the southern border to flee violence in their home countries. The protests were a bust. Local news reports and pictures posted on social media show anemic turnout, from about 40 people in front of the United Nations in New York to just three at a McClellan, Texas, border control station who wondered if they had gotten...

Mashable’s Gina Piccalo writes today about the split among evangelical conservatives on the issue of immigration reform. While some evangelical activists have cited biblical values to support comprehensive immigration reform, others — such as Phyllis Schlafly, David Barton and Bryan Fischer — are busily trawling through the Bible for passages to justify their opposition. Piccalo interviews Americans for Legal Immigration’s William Gheen, who it turns out also takes a Christian nationalist view of his opposition to immigration reform. Gheen conveniently... MORE >
William Gheen Warns China Will 'Pull An Abraham Lincoln,' Recruit Undocumented Immigrants To Attack US From Within In

In an interview with Jim Schneider of VCY America on Tuesday, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC claimed that in the event of a U.S.- China war over the Taiwan Strait, China will recruit undocumented immigrants to fight the U.S. from within and will then give them American land, a move he compared to Abraham Lincoln giving land to former slaves after recruiting blacks to fight in the Civil War. “Once again, with China, the Pentagon has reports from war colleges saying, ‘We’ve got large groups of people’ — and they...

For some mysterious reason, the Los Angeles Times has decided that William Gheen of the fringe anti-immigrant group Americans for Immigration Reform is a credible source for immigration policy stories, and last week invited him to participate in a live debate on the issue with two immigration reform advocates. To her credit, Times report Ann Simmons confronted Gheen with the transcript of a 2011 radio interview — first reported by Right Wing Watch — in which he implied that “illegal and violent” tactics might be needed to stop President Obama’s war on “...
