Sierra Club Weighs Immigration Issue

Sponsored by:

One year after failing to win control of the Sierra Club in a bitterly contested election, advocates for stricter immigration limits are back.

Now they´re arguing that the conservation group can best protect the environment by reducing U-S population growth. The club´s 750,000 members are voting this month on whether the 113-year-old organization should push for tighter restrictions on immigration. But some current and former club leaders argue that wading into the politics of immigration will alienate allies such as labor unions and civil rights groups and won´t slow population growth worldwide.
