A group associated with Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s pro-amnesty FWD.us is running ads for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) after Republican New Hampshire Senate challenger Scott Brown turned the race into a dead heat by running against illegal immigration.
According to Politico, “the Council for American Job Growth, an affiliate of the Zuckerberg group FWD.us,” will spend “nearly $1 million to boost” Shaheen’s reelection bid. The ad reportedly “highlights Shaheen’s work in Congress on veterans issues” and “doesn’t mention immigration at all.”
Shaheen voted for the Senate’s comprehensive amnesty legislation that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers. FWD.us has said they would double down on comprehensive amnesty legislation, even as its president Joe Green was recently “forced” out after failing to make progress on amnesty legislation. On Saturday, Brown continued to hammer the political class for pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants while “enemies of our country are planning attacks”:
When the enemies of our country are planning attacks and our leaders in Washington are planning amnesty, something is wrong.
