DHS "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" includes wider range of groups

Just before the more famous "rightwing extremism" report, the Department of Homeland Security also released a "Domestic Extremism Lexicon" that defines a wide range of left, right, and elsewhere groups. You can download a copy from here, and the DHS says it was pulled for an unnamed reason shortly after it was released.

Among those groups and movements defined are "anti-immigration extremism":

A movement of groups or individuals who are vehemently opposed to illegal immigration, particularly along the U.S. southwest border with Mexico, and who have been known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot acts of violence and terrorism to advance their extremist goals. They are highly critical of the U.S. Government’s response to illegal immigration and oppose government programs that are designed to extend "rights" to illegal aliens, such as issuing driver’s licenses or national identification cards and providing in-state tuition, medical benefits, or public education.

The "and" bolded above might at first indicate that they were restricting this to only those advocating or engaging in violence. Except, the "been known to advocate" part could open it to those who are falsely accused of inciting hate crimes, such as Barack Obama did of Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh. The Obama-linked ThinkProgress refers to Rush and other mainstream rightwing talkers as "hate radio", so it's not out of the realm of possibility that the more corrupted members of the DHS might include those who are not in fact extremists in that group. The reason why they put "rights" in scare quotes is not clear; the Supreme Court has determined that K-12 education for illegal aliens is a right, but the others are not.

They also define the "alternative media" as:

A term used to describe various information sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media products and outlets.

Which describes this site and others who tell the truth.

The far-left influence is shown in their definition of "hate groups":

A term most often used to describe white supremacist groups. It is occasionally used to describe other racist extremist groups.

It's a good thing they added that on at the end.

They give a hat tip to reconquista extremists in "Mexican separatism":

A movement of groups or individuals of Mexican descent who advocate the secession of southwestern U.S. states (all or part of Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas) to join with Mexico through armed struggle. Members do not recognize the legitimacy of these U.S. states, including the U.S. Government’s original acquisition of these territories.

They don't mention that Obama fed such sentiments by advocating the reconquista viewpoint.

And, they define "Puerto Rican independence extremists" as:

Groups or individuals who engage in criminal activity and advocate the use of violence to achieve Puerto Rican independence from the United States.

I haven't been able to verify it, but see the comment here about Luis Gutierrez and Nydia Velazquez being U.S. leaders of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party. They later lobbied Bill Clinton to pardon Puerto Rico terrorists (long article here). Gutierrez also "sent" a staffer to Rod Blagojevich who'd been imprisoned in regards to a terrorist act.
