WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Frustrated that they have been unable to enact a massive illegal alien amnesty and huge increases in immigration, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and America's Voice have scheduled yet another "news" conference that will be short on policy analysis but long on blame, baseless allegations, and general attempts to discredit any immigration policy organization with which they disagree.
