Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“‘Just two months after it was published, the ACLU and other open border advocates are mounting a campaign intended to convince Congress and the American public that the 9/11 Commission report called only for reform of our intelligence agencies,’ said Dan Stein, president of FAIR. ‘In the annals of historical revisionism, the ACLU has set a new speed record for distorting the truth.'”
