Anti-immigration - -

The California Coalition for Immigration Reform (CCIR) is a anti-immigration group based in California. The Southern Poverty Law states that the head of the organization is a woman named Barbara Coe who is a co-sponsor of California's Proposition 187, which would have denied medical care to illegal immigrants. The website also states that Coe claims that she has exposed a secret Mexican plan to take over the South-West states of America. According to The Southern Poverty Law the California Coalition for Immigration Reform has sponsored billboard at the border of Arizona and California saying “Welcome to California, the Illegal Immigrant State. Don't Let This Happen To Your State” which you can view pictures of on the CCIR website.

The website CCIR, headed under the slogan “Ready, Set, Go Home” offer merchandise and membership which can be bought via the internet by anyone. The website offers news links to keep up-to-date with the status on illegal immigration in the media and a report card of activity of illegal immigration in each state. The CCIR aims to spread the knowledge of illegal immigration that is by their definition affecting their children lives in schools and in their communities.

Pro-Immigration -

This is the Anti-Defamation League website who's aim it is to speak out against discrimination of immigrants and minorities by people who want to fuel white supremacy and hate groups who aim to ignite fear in people that illegal immigrants are invading America and destroying its culture and trying to take over, violence is another issue that people believe illegal immigrants are coming into communities and causing chaos and destruction to the families in America. Also another stereotype which is being promoted by hate groups and other organizations is that these illegal immigrants bring with them disease. The Anti-Defamation League wants to put an end to these stereotypes and stop hate crimes against minority groups and Latino's which are on the rise. The website has its own Hispanic affairs page where you can find information on the work they do to help maintain communities environments and trying to put an end to the stereotypes which are causing the fear among American communities.
