Kathryn,
I don't think it is helpful to charaterize some environmentatist stance as
"anti-immigrant".   This type of language divides us for no apparent usefull
reason.

They're position were one of zero population growth for US, and that net
immigration is part of that picture.

While some folks many be "anti-immigrant", tarring all folks in favor of
restricting immigration because of the US population effects is wrong,
factually and tactically.

The recent Sierra Club measure calling for restrictions on immigration
illustrates that there is a significant minority of environmentalists who
take an anti-immigrant stance with respect to environmental concerns.
