Two Notes about Two Quotes: Southern Poverty Law Center edition

"According to the Southern Poverty Law Center schools often don’t outright deny enrollment but use tactics such as asking for hard to get documents, requiring Social Security numbers, tell parents their children are too old to enroll in some classes or require families to fill out complex paperwork written in English." -Suzanne Gamboa (ABC News:http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/schools-told-stop-barring-kids-based-immigration-status-n99891)

ED NOTE:  I don't see how anyone in their right mind can make such issues and turn it into something "racist." Class sizes are an issue nationwide. The rest of the documentation is normally asked for from any citizen. Though, that may be the case. The issue isn't "racist" but, rather, it's citizenship. "Citizenship," however, in the mind of the far left is "racist."

"The SPLC's criteria for calling out a group have nothing to do with violence or criminal activity. Instead, being labeled a hate group depends on whether the group has "beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics," such as being black, white, Asian and so on". --George Hager (USA Today  http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2014/04/30/hate-group-southern-poverty-law-center/8531385/)

ED NOTE: However, the SPLC is exempted itself from being on their list when they malign and attack various classes of people, like Christians, for one.
