It’s on: Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us hits Donald Trump on immigration

“Just wrong,” is how Mark Zuckerberg’s advocacy group, FWD.us, describes some of Donald Trump’s positions on immigration reform.

In a statement on the group’s website, FWD.us’s president, Todd Schulte, refuted some of the immigration reform ideas Trump has supported. Without mentioning Trump by name, Schulte attacked Trump’s proposal calling on mass deportation of the 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally:

What’s absurd is not just these ‘plans,’ but that those who would seek to represent Americans as president are falling all over themselves to support backward policies that would rip apart American families and collapse our economy.

Schulte also wrote that “the idea we should radically restrict pathways for highly-skilled immigrants to come and stay here is – again – just wrong.”

Earlier this week, Trump, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, posted his policy paper on immigration reform, as I wrote.

It included a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and a boost in wages for those with H-1B visas, which tech companies use to bring in skilled talent from overseas. Companies should first have to hire locally, he said.

Trump also called out Sen. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican, for allegedly doing the bidding of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg when it comes to immigration reform.

Rubio, wrote Trump, is Zuckerberg,’s “personal senator.”

But on Tuesday, Trump tweeted his support for other proposals the tech industry seeks, namely to make it easier for foreign students here to stay and work in the U.S.:

    Suckerberg be a useless cocq zucker looking for to exployt de cheep labor.

    Screw him with a sharp, sharp stick.

    “What’s absurd is not just these ‘plans,’ but that those who would seek to represent Americans as president are falling all over themselves to support backward policies that would rip apart American families and collapse our economy.” First off – They AREN’T American families – they are ILLEGALS from foreign countries. Who for the most part fly they foreign flags on their front porches or go to protests flying their countries flags speaking their countries languages. So if they are Americans then this immigration problem wouldn’t even be a topic of debate! Second…collapsing the economy?!? I don’t think so! We would be better off not having to pay such high taxes, unemployment wouldn’t be so high for actual Americans and the idea of paying a burger flipper wouldn’t be to pay them $15 an hour. Which is what is going to collapse the economy and further the increase of unemployment and more businesses to close.

    • Secret Person

      Children born to Mexican illegals are automatically Mexican citizens, therefore they and their children are merely going back to their home country.

  • sfsoma

    Zuck is primarily interested in to whom and how much he must “contribute” to have a near endless supply of H1-B visas for his company to use at their whim. Golden handcuffs = ‘loyal’ employees.

  • primus7474

    Zuckerberg just wants to be able to pay Indian H1-B visa holders 30% lower wages than Americans who are just as qualified to do the jobs. If it didn’t benefit him, he wouldn’t care about immigrants.

    • legbreaker

      You are right on target primus7474.

  • ron

    Yawn..Same old played out excuses by Zeroburg and his merry liberals…

    More than 45 MILLION IMMIGRANTS LIVE IN THE U.S. (That’s both illegal and legal immigrants), according to UN figures, more than FOUR TIMES as many living in any other nation in the world. Unless you like more traffic, congestion, etc., it’s time to slow down ALL immigration. There is nothing sacred about it.

    THINK ABOUT THAT NEXT TIME YOU ARE STUCK IN TRAFFIC!

    Immigration is equivalent to 90% of the population increase in California and 70% in the nation during the 1990s. This number reflects the immigrants who arrived in the decade plus their offspring.

    JOIN……NumbersUSA……..Educating Americans on the problems of uncontrolled immigration and offering solutions for sensible immigration reform.

    • legbreaker

      Give the illegal aliens nothing and let them like it. Go back to the third world shithole you
      came from and stay there.

    • DelmarJackson

      Amen Larry, join numbersusa and read vdare.com every day and vote out all immigration weasel globalists in BOTH parties

    • skiph1

      Who’s gonna get us our food? Here’s an idea make them and the people who illegally hire them pay taxes. You can control people who pay taxes.

  • NakedTruth

    I dropped FB years ago because of FWD.us The little thief Zuckerberg and the rest of Silicon Valley’s 1% are trying to pass Comprehensive Immigration so they can flood the US with cheap labor.

    • J S

      Apparently your ancestors didnt follow your own rules !!

      • NakedTruth

        We live by todays rules.

        • skiph1

          which are cut our own throats because we’re idiots?

    • skiph1

      And this fixes our farm labor problem how?
      The real secret which most clueless people miss is the business interest in immigrant labor. If we didn’t need them they’d be gone. You’re fighting an idiots battle with your own party and you don’t know it.

  • C Vaught

    Sucker is a selfserving thief who stole Facebook from the twins in college.

  • wylie123

    We all know that Zuk’s objective is to get cheap immigrant labor.

    • Thiago

      If Trump used cheap labor himself building his HUGE buildings for decades why can’t Mark do the same? Your lazy hypocrite.

      • Dan Buhr

        Thiago, Obviously you know nothing about construction. Especially the size of Trumps buildings. Trump hires a General Contractor.The general contractor is a manager and hires all the subcontractors.

        You would be surprised how many thousands of workers have never even seen Trump after working on his job for years. Do you think he’s going to be there checking id’s that’s retarded

        • Thiago

          You are right trump is a inocência angel and he did not know that the people working in his jobs speaking Spanish and eating tortilhas were ilegals

        • Thiago

          You are right trump is a little inocente baby that didn’t know that illegals worked for him that’s me and Ivanka in a event together believe me I know this guy better than you think.

        • Thomas Kirk

          so you say trump is a liar and is a coward.

      • wylie123

        What makes you think Trump employed cheap labor? You can’t prove that but Zukerbgerg is on record doing that. Who’s nose is the brownest?

        • J S

          I dunno about nose but my dck is !! Tired of bending you guys over …its boring.

          • wylie123

            I would be surprised if you can find it! What is it with the liberal left, they lack enough intelligence to research or believe facts that do not support the narrative you have?

  • Thiago

    The bottom line is if the Americans weren’t so Lazy the wouldn’t be a single immigrant working in this country. I Own a business and I can see first hand that every american I hire is lazy and the immigrants works twice as hard.

    • C Vaught

      Lazy like your thieving family?

      Americans built the most powerful economy In the world…that’s why lazy illegals like you want to come here…for half price.

      Like cheap dirt…or a sleazy parasite.

      • Thiago

        Yes you are right America build the most powerful economy, by stealing from other countries and killing the competition literally like they did with Japanese

        • Michael Morgan

          Now, now, they also had slavery….

          • Law.Abider

            They had slavery in the south and it was a dying economy before the civil war. The only thing that revived the southern economy a bit was the invention of the cotton gin. Then the Brits bought the cotton that was produced in the south. The Brits, who like to think they are above others, are not at all innocent in this slavery mess.

      • J S

        How are those friggin welfare checks coming along dbag ??

    • DelmarJackson

      LOL The bottom line is if America hating billionaire open border globalists had not bought both political parties and the media and opened the floodgates of 3rd world immigration so they can profit from it and pass on all the social, economic and environmental costs to the communities THEN there would not be a single immigrant working in the country.

      • J S

        So they did this out of altruism ?!! id like to smoke some of that sh$t youve been smoking !!

    • annjohns

      Weird how you step one foot over the southern border and they are obviously not hard working at all. Its a dilapidated, dirty and dangerous mess.

      • Thiago

        There’s no question that America is a great superior country as there is no questions that this big amazing country have a huge 19 trilion credit card bill to pay

        • Reynauld

          you sound like a foreigner..

          • ellafino

            Right and Reynauld sounds American?

      • Secret Person

        I’ve been to India and there were groups of men sitting around playing cards all while trash and garbage were strewn around the streets. In LA, it’s the hispanics who throw their trash and unwanted furniture in the streets. It’s the Protestant work ethic that made the West prosperous.

    • Thiago

      I apologize I did not mean to generalize some I asume are not lazy

      • skiph1

        snap

    • Reynauld

      Yeah..and for half as much money as Americans..we are sick of the rationalizations you greedy bastards use

    • That is a load of Grade A manure. Part of the “problem” is that everyone wants to go to college… Let’s face it, not everyone is fit to be an astronaut… It used to be that butchers, plumbers and such earned a decent wage. In the half century since the disastrously traitorous immigration law championed by Chappaquidick Ted, the only person I know to have gotten away with murder so cleanly to have never even been arrested, we have seen the GDP (adjusted for inflation) grow more than 30%… Yet the wages of non-supervisory workers (about 80% of all workers) have shrunken more than 15% (also adjusted for inflation)… What we have as a result is an impoverishment of the middle class (particularly the low-middle class) benefiting oligarchs and stockholders… Used to be that a good butcher would make about $14.00/hour in the late 1960’s early ’70’s… Today, about $7.00/hour. Why, because most of the meat packers and meat processors are manned by immigrants and refugees… But nobody cares because the beef processors took the plants out of the cities and into the hinterland where nobody sees and fewer care.

  • Peter Griffin

    Suckerburg has no fear of losing his money so why does he give two $hits about the american workers who are losing jobs to wetbacks…..EFF Suckerburg!!!

    • skiph1

      you think Americans can’t find jobs? Prove it. Right now, thanks to a healthy economy, jobs are available most everywhere. No American wants the jobs these people do. You try working side by side with them picking fruit or vegetables. My guess, you wouldn’t last 2 days. Most Americans wouldn’t. You want inflation, food shortages and farmers screaming for federal help as their crops sit unpicked? Send these people home. It would be chaos.

      • Secret Person

        That’s BS. Liberals support illegals because it advances their agenda of destroying Western civilization. Only 1-2% of illegals are ag workers. Ag workers are exposed to toxic chemicals and backbreaking repetitive labor which cripples them after years of work. You have to wonder why liberals support this slave labor at low wages. They blather that only illegals are willing to do this work. Why? Because Americans won’t work as slave labor anymore. No one deserves to work under those conditions. The book, Tomatoland, exposes real slavery of illegals on farms.

        http://www.npr.org/2011/06/28/137371975/how-industrial-farming-destroyed-the-tasty-tomato

        If wages were raised high enough and working conditions vastly improved then more Americans would do that work. Labor is a small component of produce prices so, no, you won’t be getting $5 heads of lettuce. Farmers need to adjust to the new reality regarding ag workers and plan for it. Even govt subsidies might be required, much like France has, to protect its agricultural markets. Agriculture is a country’s strategic asset.

      • Like computer programmer jobs? Americans are fired and replaced with H-1Bs such as at Disney and Southern California Edison.

      • Peter Griffin

        LIberal trash talk….”our nation would collapse because we don’t have criminals picking fruit!” Amazingly the nation has fine before these illegals arrived but now because of them they are stealing jobs, raising health care costs(because they don’t pay their hospital bills), raising school costs(because they don’t pay property taxes), robbing social security, and state assistance programs….So sure…illegals picking fruit is keeping this country in tact….your an idiot.

  • H1BisTreason

    Please wake up! Many of the States have already been Invaded!!! This is one of those shady areas. If you have millions of people who Invade a country, isn’t that a Declaration of WAR without words? It’s so hilarious if you think about it, it’s a passive invasion, happens slowly and over time because we don’t enforce the existing laws. So instead of enforcing said laws, we would rather bend over backwards for cheap cheap H-1B/L1, Visa-Over-stayer and illegals that do not want to assimilate nor speak English. Now that right there is democracy, a failed one at that. So how exactly does this help the ANY “American” of ANY Race?

  • H1BisTreason

    If all these Fake Degree H-1B/L1 and Illegal Aliens Job thieves scabs are so hardworking and so highly skilled and so smart, then why isn’t there own country bending over backwards to keep these people? Is India/China/Mexico/Vietnam or Euro-trash countries so well developed that it no longer needs its own hardworking citizens to maintain its economy and infrastructure? Of course not, this is really an attempt by the governments of India/China/Mexico and Euro-trash to shirk millions of its poor citizens off on another country (the US) without any consequences.

  • H1BisTreason

    All H-1B/L1 visa holders and Visa Over-stayers plus all the Illegal Aliens and All who hire them are All the Real Terrorist! Please Youtube: “America’s Bogus Skilled Labor Shortage”.

  • None of these 11 million illegals are highly skilled in anything. Unless alot are working at Facebook in violation of the law. Perhaps we should arrest Zuckerberg for hiring illegals.

      I second that!

    Do Something!!!! Anything!!! Let them know that you do not approve and will continue Boycott unless the movies are Britshit FREE!

  • Brian Barwick

    I wonder if Zuckerberg hires illegals to keep his garden neat, clean his house, wash his dirty clothes and do other jobs. The authorities should look into just who he hires. If he has hired an illegal and therefore broken the law, throw the book at him. A prison term would be good for him and he would be an even bigger a%*#@$e when released.
