Millions to Attack America
Just Three Groups Have $78 Million a Year to Keep Borders Open

Annual Income - 2001

Is This a Fair Fight?
ABP - July 8, 2003. This week, Spanish language TV featured a report from Frank Sharry, who spoke in perfect Spanish. The banner read "Frank Sharry - Ford Foundation." The Ford Foundation has $9.5 billion in assets. It works to keep America's borders open by financing groups such as MALDEF and NCLR. Adding in the virulent anti-American SPLC, and these three groups bring in more than $78 million a year to destroy America's sovereignty. Last year, American Border Patrol's total income was less than $50,000.
Is this a fair fight?
