Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to “go back to San Francisco” and stop trying to “eliminate” anyone opposed to amnesty for illegal immigrants.
In a fundraising e-mail, King says that opponents of amnesty “are under attack by liberal billionaire Mark Zuckerberg — and he chose to begin his attacks on Good Friday of all days!”
“The founder of Facebook is determined to eliminate anyone who disagrees with his plan for amnesty for illegal immigrants — and he’s starting with me,” he writes in the e-mail.
Zuckerberg’s FWD.us group has run two attack ads specifically targeting King for his opposition to amnesty for DREAMers who enlist in the U.S. military.
“Let’s tell Zuckerberg it’s time to go back to San Francisco with his pal Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — a place where radical liberalism runs wild. We need to tell him we will not yield to a progressive amnesty agenda,” King said.
Even though numerous studies have debunked the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers, high-tech interest groups like Zuckerberg’s continue to push for more H1-B visas and amnesty legislation that would lower the wages of American workers.
