MALDEF (which was created nearly out of whole cloth by the Ford Foundation) is leading the anti-200 forces.

Note that this AZ Republic report is printed in the Tucson Citizen as "Group out to kill Prop. 200 before birth". They don't print the last several paragraphs of the article; note where the break comes.
