I’m receiving threats over my initiative to bar illegals from our schools

The San Bernardino Sun published an article today about how I am receiving threats of violence and other forms of harassment and intimidation regarding my American Children First initiative.

Here is a snippet from the article:


It’s been an eventful few days for Joseph Turner since he unveiled a proposed ballot initiative that would see the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District ban undocumented immigrants from attending public school.

In an email Friday, Turner wrote that, as he had expected, he has been getting his fill of hate slung at him from those appalled at his proposal, including threats of violence and doxing — the malicious publishing of someone’s private and identifying information on the internet. He also has endured racist comments about his Asian girlfriend and homophobic slurs hurled his way.

Thursday night, though, he got a much warmer welcome in Mentone.

“You can’t put America first if you put American children second,” Turner told the roughly 200 attendees at the Redlands Tea Party Patriots’ April meeting at Mill Creek Cattle Co.

“It’s a zero-sum game: Every dollar spent on educating an illegal immigrant child is a dollar not spent on educating American children,” he said.

In an email Friday, Turner said the response at the meeting was very positive, with a lot of support expressed by the attendees.

Joseph Turner is the founder and executive director for American Children First. He is a nationalist hardliner on illegal immigration issues and considered one of the foremost visionary and strategic thinkers in the movement. Previously, he founded the California-based anti-illegal immigration group Save Our State in 2004. He also authored the Illegal Immigration Relief Act (IIRA) in 2005 which served as the model blueprint for dozens of other cities, most notably Hazleton (PA) and Farmers Branch (TX). The IIRA is believed to have represented the first ever attempt to use the local initiative process to combat illegal immigration in the United States.
