As Earth Day Approaches, Anti-Immigrant Group Tries To Woo Environmentalists
The anti-immigrant group Californians For Population Stabilization (CAPS) is trying to appeal to California environmentalists with an ad hooked to Earth Day.
Despite the group’s attempt at a green image, it has rarely hidden its anti-immigrant nativism. The group’s chairwoman Marilyn Deyoung warned last year that children of immigrants allowed to stay in the country under the DREAM act would become communists and smugglers. Earlier this year, CAPS published a blog post saying immigration had turned Los Angeles “from an American city to something resembling Mexico.” The group’s employees include a founding member of the neo-Confederate League of the South and a contributor to the white nationalist website VDARE.
In CAPS’s Earth Day ad, a little boy asks why California is “so crowded” and has “so many cars.” “Let’s slow immigration and save some California for tomorrow,” a voiceover replies.
