I sued @UMich to unseal the papers of John Tanton, the racist architect of the modern anti-immigrant movement.— Hassan Ahmad 🇺🇸 (@HMAesq) June 20, 2019

“By the early ‘70s, Tanton had begun looking for further tools of population control, toying with an idea he called 'passive eugenics' and eventually beginning to wonder about the impact of immigration on population growth. ‘I found virtually no one was willing to talk about this!’ he said. ‘It was a forbidden topic. I tried to get some others to think about it and write about it, but I did not succeed. I finally concluded that if anything was going to happen, I would have to do it myself.’”
