Big government, big business, open-borders alliance undercuts Americans
NumbersUSA runs a report titled “Comprehensive Amnesty Threat,” that is a must read if you care about adherence to the Rule of Law and the continuation of the great country our Founders envisioned for us.
The so-called Tech Giants of Silicon Valley have another vision, and one they intend to implement through the pressure of big bucks and use of bogus language — such as “comprehensive immigration reform,” “secure the border,” “broken immigration system” and “Dreamers” which has morphed into a dreamy word from the acronym D.R.E.A.M. (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors).
This opinion piece “Obama’s DREAM Act is a constitutional nightmare,” by former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr (R-GA) fills in the gaps. Barr says the so-called DREAM Act “provides significant and continuing benefits to persons residing in the United States unlawfully.” There is no means of verification when illegals claim they were brought here as babes in arms rather than actually crossing into the U.S. as adults, making it an open invitation for fraud — since legislation would make it illegal for any information in an amnesty application to be used to initiate removal proceedings. The burden of proof would fall on law enforcement agencies, forcing them to prove that any information they used to find, detain and try to remove an illegal alien was already in their files before an application was received or was not derived from the application. If an illegal lies about his age to qualify for the program, and the lie is never detected, he gets amnesty. And if the lie is discovered, it matters not, since law enforcement is forbidden from using that information against the Dreamy new democrat voter.
Of course, none of that matters to Mark Bloomberg and FWD.US, a group set up by Silicon Valley titans including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Reed Hastings of Netflix, Andrew Mason of Groupon, and Melissa Mayer of Yahoo, who are funding a conservative “fly-in” of conservatives to meet with Republican U.S. Representatives and lobby them to support amnesty. Silicon Valley’s efforts to pass this brazen shamnesty plan aren’t ending there.
Next month, FWD.US will be hosting a “DREAMer Hackathon” to showcase the tech skills of illegal aliens and to put their plight back in the spotlight. At this event, Dreamers will complete digital tasks and build online tools that help pro-amnesty advocates.
FWD.US Executive Director Todd Schulte said: “We think it’s a great opportunity to highlight the potential of ‘Dreamers’ and why we need comprehensive immigration reform. By having these incredible kids coming together with other programmers, we’re not only going to highlight exactly why our nation needs to fix our broken immigration system, we’re going to help create better advocacy to make that happen.”
The lengthy list of mega wealthy founders/contributors/supporters of FWD.US also includes Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, Tim Armstrong, CEO and Chairman of AOL, Inc., Barry Diller, Chairman and Senior Executive of IAC, Bill Gates, Chairman of Microsoft and Co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, gives an indication of the level of pre$$ure the members of congress will receive.
Why don’t these industry leaders want to hire American citizens when our unemployment rates remain at unacceptable levels?
