Turner has reveled in promoting violence against undocumented workers from Mexico or those who he feels support undocumented immigrants. In May 2009, Turner bragged that his “release of US Senator home addresses and home (unlisted) telephone numbers 12 hours before they voted on Amnesty for illegal aliens is credited with killing that Bill” in 2007. In response to the April 2009 shooting in a Binghamton, New York immigration center in which 14 people were killed, Turner made a post to his Web site entitled “Immigrant Shooting; they were legitimate targets.”

In June 2007, while talking about undocumented immigrants, he commented, “There's going to be a lot of violence in this country and there's going to be a lot of bloodshed… I advocate violence as a means, and I advocate the use of violence as a tool…Violence solves everything… I've done it. It works, and I encourage you to do it. We need a lot more violence to straighten up America.” In 2006, he wrote, “These people are sub-human. I would love it if folks who do have such weapons, used them on the crowds on April 10 [at immigration rallies]. I advocate machine gunning these invaders to death at their rallies!”
