INS Issues Weak Retreaction

"American Anti-Immigrant Groups Rally to the Southwest Border"

The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) issued an internal Officer Safety Bulletin on October 25, 2000 that has raised questions related to its contents. This bulletin mistakenly implied an affiliation between legitimate organizations concerned about the effects of illegal immigration with anti-immigrant or racial supremacy hate groups. INS apologizes for any misunderstanding this may have created. Alerting our officers to possible safety threats is critical. The October Bulletin was intended to alert field offices to the potential that hate groups might take advantage of legal gatherings of legitimate organizations to further their cause.
