Coalition for the Future American Worker
This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.
Following President Bush's announcement of his immigration reform plan (which includes more Border Patrol agents, added technology such as drone planes, more detention facilities, and a "temporary worker program"), the Coalition for the Future American Worker (CFAW) launched an ad campaign calling for a harsher approach. The CFAW ads "feature U.S. workers who attribute wage depression and job displacement in their communities to the influx of illegal immigrants," challenging Bush's "contention that foreign workers are only taking jobs Americans won't do." CFAW members include the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Information Technology Professionals Association of America, and American Engineering Association.
