I've been writing for years about the odd history of anti-immigration groups -- and they are anti-immigration, not just anti-illegal immigration. Groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the Center for Immigration Studies, NumbersUSA, and others have little in common with conservatives.

These guys aren't MY bedfellows. Nor are they conservative bedfellows in general. As far as GOP congressmen inviting them to speak in hearings...were I 'invited' to speak in such hearings I would be waiting to be stabbed in the back and told to be silent while the knife was twisted. Congressional hearings are an abuse of power and an affront to the idea of a free citizenry.
