Anti-immigrant extremists are furious over a decision by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to exclude Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), a nativist organization masquerading as an environmental group, from its annual meeting.
In a press release this week, CAPS board member Stuart Hurlbert, an emeritus professor of biology of San Diego State University, raged that AAAS was “openly censor[ing] speech and access to information” and asked why the group “fears any discussion of stabilizing U.S. population by lowering immigration.”

I thought our readers might be interested in the email I received from CAPS board member Stuart Hurlbert after I wrote to him, CAPS President Diana Hull, and CAPS board member Ben Zuckerman, seeking comment for my blog post “Lou Dobbs Citing Extremists, Again.” I asked them about the Pioneer Fund grant they received and about CAPS’ relationship with Wayne Lutton, the white supremacist mentioned in my blog post.

Its main strategy is use smear tactics, innuendo and charges of “hate” against any individual or group that has become effective in stymying the open borders agenda of SPCL and other organizations of the radical left and radical right.
It functions much like Hamas, or Hezbollah, or drug lords who provide gyms and soccer fields to rural Mexican villages. It does a few good things (like go after the KKK, neoNazis, etc.) in order to drum up donations to fund a lot of bad things.
