Sierra Club Pulls Out of Earth Day Event Because FAIR is Attending

“The Sierra Club is pulling out of an Earth Day festival in Dallas, Texas scheduled for April 23 because groups that want to restrict immigration — whether legal or illegal — will be in attendance. The festival will also be attended by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, NumbersUSA and Progressives for Immigration Reform, all of which seek to reduce the number of people coming into America. Each group says they are participating because they have an environmental message,” the Daily Caller reported.

“Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. announced Thursday he will seek state Supreme Court review of a ruling that he turn over uncensored immigration hold requests to an advocacy group.

Obama Amnesty Plan Put All the Eggs in the Executive Action Basket

“Comprehensive immigration reform, as we know it, is dead. There are no congressional meetings taking place behind closed doors. No bipartisan bills up for a vote. Instead the entire progressive agenda on immigration is riding on a single case about to be argued next week before an ideologically split Supreme Court,” MSNBC says.

What is Monday’s Hearing About?

“In November 2014, President Barack Obama unveiled what he hoped would be a centerpiece of his second term: executive actions meant to bypass congressional inaction and help millions of undocumented immigrants come out of the legal shadows in the U.S. But a federal court put the skids on the program, blocking it from going forward in February of 2015 and now its future is in the hands of the Supreme Court,” CNN reports.

    So the Sierra Club is opposed to reducing mass immigration to reduce US population growth, even though the mass immigration driven population growth that California and the US has experienced in recent decades is the worst thing that could have ever happened to their natural environments short of something like nuclear fallout.

    These are the same kind of phony hypocrites that live in San Francisco and make a big deal about how much they care about the environment, yet San Francisco has destroyed John Muir’s beloved Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park for its water supply. Hetch Hetchy Valley has been compared to Yosemite Valley for its natural beauty, or at least it was comparable until San Francisco destroyed one of the natural wonders of the world for its water supply. And San Francisco is a sanctuary city that supports open borders. It looks like the phony environmentalists/Sierra Club members in San Francisco would rather destroy Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy Valley than reduce immigration. What phonies.

      San Francisco built a dam and turned Hetch Hetchy Valley into a lake in case anyone doesn’t know.

  2. LOL Earthday Meant Useful Depopulation in 1970

    What does it mean now…..relatively useless recycling [one plane trip = one year of reduced carbon footprint implementing recycling]? A dog= the carbon footprint of two Hummers. This came from the liberal source…..Mother Earth Magazine.

    YAY ! YAY ! YAH ! At least the sponsors or one Earth Day event get it! They’ll have the fair and reasonable people from FAIR and not the hypocrites from the Sierra Club. I dropped my Sierra Club membership years ago – as a true environmentalist, I understand the importance of population issues, of which immigration is one, which is clear to all but ostriches like the Sierra Club,who bury their heads in the sand.
