Political Influence Operation

Date: May 1, 2010

Description:

The San Diego Chapter of CAIR “expressed concerns” over comments made by Congressman Duncan D. Hunter at a Tea Party where he supported the idea of deporting U.S. born children of illegal immigrants and spoke in favor of Arizona SB1070 as a “fantastic starting point.”

CAIR-San Diego Public Relations Director Edgar Hopida said that the current political discourse “scapegoats” Muslims and immigrants “at the expense of American values.”

A board member of the co-sponsor of the statement, the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium (SDIRC), asked “Are we to believe that in Hunter’s eyes, immigrants of today should have no more human and civil rights than African slaves?,” and claimed that “Hunter would like to take California back to 1860.”
