We Can Stop The Hate: Mexico-linked groups try silencing opponents of illegal immigration
The extremist-funding National Council of La Raza has started a new effort called We Can Stop The Hate (wecanstopthehate.org) which is attempting to silence those who support our immigration laws by highlighting what they call examples of "hate". Three of their cohorts in the effort have at least indirect links to the Mexican government. Note that that government has explicitly stated that they're going to be using U.S. non-profits to push their agenda, but whether they're involved in the effort isn't known.
The groups involved:
* Anti-Defamation League
* Center for American Progress
* Leadership Conference on Civil Rights
* Media Matters for America (has received money from George Soros)
* Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund
* Southern Poverty Law Center
Their targets include Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck, Pat Buchanan, and others, and a video from them is here.
The easy way to defeat their effort is to go to public appearances by their representatives and ask them about their constituent groups' links to the Mexican government and whether they're receiving any help from that government. And, engage them in a debate designed to show that they're lying about "hate" and just trying to use it as a smokescreen for their support for illegal activity.

UPDATE 2: The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) supports the campaign (link).
UPDATE 4: The American Jewish Committee has joined their campaign.
