: Strange Bed Fellows? Anti-immigration Organizations and Hate Groups
Anti-immigrant groups have gotten a lot of attention for their cause lately, but what do we really know about these groups?

Recent studies by the Center for American Progress indicate that the mainstream press regularly quote national anti-immigration organizations without acknowledging these connections. What have the researchers found and how does this influence the public debate?
