Peter Schey

Mexican government-linked immigration attorney in Los Angeles, heads up the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL). Very active supporter of illegal immigration and frequent quote source for the mainstream media. The MSM invariably forgets to mention his links to that government:

- The CHRCL collaborated with that government on a program to push visas for crime victims.

- He wrote an "opposition research" paper for that government, telling them how to oppose groups such as the Minuteman Project.

- He was used by a Mexican consulate to represent illegal aliens; see this and this. In the first case he was hired by them, in the second they may have just introduced him to his clients.

He was also involved in the Plyler v Doe case which enabled illegal aliens to receive elementary educations. No one wants there to be uneducated children, but the correct solution is to fight against illegal immigration.

Schey may or may not be a citizen of the U.S., and all of his actions discussed below redound to the benefit of the Mexican government rather than U.S. citizens.
