John Tanton and the Oslo Killer

Over at Imagine 2050 on Monday, there was an interesting article about the Oslo mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik:

In a document that is reported to be Behring Breivik’s manifesto, he refers to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a Washington, DC, based anti-immigrant organization founded by white nationalist John Tanton. CIS is known for its efforts to influence immigration policy by issuing reports containing skewed data that attempts to demonize immigrants. In his manifesto, Mr. Behring Breivik writes, “A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies found that illegal’s cost the taxpayer $10 billion dollars more than they contribute, [sic] each year.”

You can read the rest of the story here.

Granted, Breivik is a very sick and disturbed individual, but so is John Tanton and many conservatives and anti-immigration types are spreading his ideas.  Those ideas are not good for Norway, they're not good for America and they're not good for freedom-loving people everywhere.
