It isn't too difficult to see FAIR's advocacy on environmental issues, if one were to look.
And then there is FAIR's mission statement:
"The mission of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is to examine immigration trends and effects, to educate the American people on the impacts of sustained high-volume immigration, and to discern, put forward, and advocate immigration policies that will best serve American environmental, societal, and economic interests today and into the future."

The bigger the population gets, the more serious the problems become…. We have to address the population issue. The United Nations, with the U.S. supporting it, took the position in Cairo in 1994 that every country was responsible for stabilizing its own population. It can be done. But in this country, it's phony to say "I'm for the environment but not for limiting immigration."
-Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day
"It is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest."
- Barbara Jordan, former Congresswoman from Texas and Chair of the
U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform
"I did tell [Sierra Club Executive Director] Carl Pope in 1994 or 1995 that if they ever came out anti-immigration, they would never get a dollar from me."
- $100 million Sierra Club donor, David Gelbaum
"Overpopulation is perhaps the biggest problem facing us, and immigration is part of the problem. It has to be addressed."
- David Brower, message of resignation from the Sierra Club board of directors
