How Billionaires Want to Keep Mass Immigration Going
“The immigration-reform advocacy group founded by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg — FWD.us (pronounced “forward U.S.”) — and funded by fellow Silicon Valley entrepreneurs including Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer — is rolling out a plan for the 2016 election that will include “substantial” investments in battleground states,” NPR reported.

Immigration Debate Becoming Unhinged
“For some reason, we as Americans have completely forgotten that our government wastes our hard-earned money, controls what guns we can and cannot have, manages our retirement accounts, and even chooses our doctors. Yet, we are utterly appalled when someone who is not even in political office says he is going to ban certain people from entering the country.
