Why do #SourcesMatter?

Anti-immigrant hate groups (Center for Immigration Studies and the Federation for American Immigration Reform) are on the rise, and their shared agenda of persecuting immigrants and shaping racial demographics have found new sympathizers in the Trump administration. Language originated by hate groups has been weaponized, and veterans of hate group leadership now work for the government. The media, in using the language of these groups, legitimizes the insidious reasoning used to separate families, spread fear within immigrant communities, and profile American citizens.  

Define American is taking a stand, and we are calling on journalists to stop citing known hate groups with direct ties to the administration.
