CNN under fire for featuring white supremacist in discussion about DACA











The Monday morning panel featured Democratic strategist Maria Cordona and Dan Stein of the Foundation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), but as TP’s Judd Legum noted, “CNN did not mention FAIR’s deep roots in white supremacy, eugenics, and white nationalism. The organization was founded by John Tanton, who founded FAIR to keep America ‘a majority-white population.’” Tanton “has corresponded with Holocaust deniers, former Klan lawyers and the leading white nationalist thinkers of the era. He introduced key FAIR leaders to the president of the Pioneer Fund, a white supremacist group set up to encourage ‘race betterment,’ at a 1997 meeting at a private club.

He introduced key FAIR leaders to the president of the Pioneer Fund, a white supremacist group set up to encourage ‘race betterment,’ at a 1997 meeting at a private club. He wrote a major funder to encourage her to read the work of a radical anti-Semitic professor — to ‘give you a new understanding of the Jewish outlook on life’ — and suggested that the entire FAIR board discuss the professor’s theories on the Jews,” wrote the SPLC’s Heidi Beirich. On CNN, Stein called DACA an “arbitrary amnesty program” and said that Republicans and FAIR will not do anything to help unless the Democrats in Congress agree to help Trump carry out his agenda, and “secure the borders, build the wall, interior enforcement and cut chain migration.”
