Southern Poverty Law Center
Montgomery, AL
(No Arizona contact info available)

Heidi Beirich is "in charge of anti-immigration organizations for the Southern Poverty Law Center" (according to an article in the Sierra Vista Herald, 10/4/02), a nationwide group of left-wing zealots and open-borders advocates run by Morris Dees ("The most notable of such prevaricators is the not-so-impecunious Southern Poverty Law Center, headed by lawyer Morris Dees. Mr. Dees is a leftist icon of sorts. He manages to reap gorgeous profits from his not-for- profit business through website terrorism and hyper-emotional junk-mail campaigns." -- Karen De Coster )

...In the early 1960s, Morris Dees sat on the sidelines honing his direct-marketing skills and practicing law while the civil rights movement engulfed the South. "Morris and I...shared the overriding purpose of making a pile of money," recalls Dees's business partner, a lawyer named Millard Fuller (not to be confused with Millard Farmer). "We were not particular about how we did it; we just wanted to be independently rich."
..."Spencer's connection with Sachem has drawn criticism from his opponents, who charge his influence and his angry rhetoric have only served to inflame an already tense situation. "He is a critical organizer of events," said Heidi Beirich, a senior writer for the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center's magazine Intelligence Report."

According to Heidi Beirich, a senior writer for the Intelligence Report published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, there has been a recent surge in anti-immigration organizations throughout the New York region. "It used to be just a border issue," she said. "We've never seen it in the northeast." She said she believes the worst is ahead-that the combination of an unsteady economy with the continual stream of immigrants across the nation's borders is creating an environment ripe for radicalization. (From: "Why they still come")
Beirich said she believes that the latest increase in immigration coupled with a lack of political dialogue has radicalized people who might have been more moderate. Since the passage and subsequent defeat of California proposition 187 in 1998, which proposed to ban services including education to children born to immigrant parents, there has been little national discussion about immigration policy.
