Steve King: Facebook Co-Founder Attacking Me for Telling Truth About Amnesty
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said that Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is targeting him specifically with attack ads because he is one of the few in Congress who will stand up against and tell the truth about amnesty.
As Breitbart News reported, Zuckerberg's FWD.us group that has spent millions to lobby for amnesty, specifically for high-tech visas that would lower the wages of American workers, unleashed two attack ads against King on Friday that slammed him for his "hateful comments" about DREAMers who want citizenship for their military service.
"Our Nation’s military is full of dedicated men and women and to disrespect them by rewarding illegal aliens with citizenship is an insult," King said on Friday.
Breitbart News first reported an "effort by Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) to insert the immigration proposal into the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)," which those like King called out and opposed.
“I am under attack by billionaire Mark Zuckerberg because I am one of the few who will stand up and tell the truth about amnesty,” King said. “He wants amnesty because it would benefit his multi-billion dollar corporation, but I’m fighting to preserve the Rule of Law. Why would we reward people for breaking our laws?"
King stated that "rewarding law breakers produces more law breakers" and asked "everyone who agrees that illegal immigrants should not be rewarded for having broken the law stand with me."
