Trump Faces Off With Facebook
Maybe there should be a reality tv series called “When Billionaires Attack!”. It could start off with GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump taking on Facebook founder Marc Zuckerberg. If so, the latest clash of the titans would be a great start.
Zuckerberg’s group know as FWD.com has lambasted Trump for his immigration policies. It all stems from Trump berating the government regarding tech jobs here being given to foreigners under the H-1B employment visas used by high tech companies to usher in these workers as well as entertainment companies like Disney.
Trump has gone to extremes stating that he would build a wall between the US and Mexico and deport the estimated 11 million illegals in the country. Other politicians have spouted similar ideas and here we are 40 years with the same problem and nothing has been done about it except issue amnesties. With the massive amount of Americans in debt, jobless, homeless, sympathies for the illegals is not there. That’s why Trump gains so much ground on the topic because his approach is a brute force one. The other approaches have been useless.
This is where Zuckerberg steps in. He feels that Trump’s plan is absurd and is in conflict with the basics of the Republican ideologies. Of note, the constant raging of Republicans to have smaller government but it would take big government for Trump’s immigration actions to come true.
In all fairness, no one has an answer to the illegal immigration problem. Not Zuckerberg nor Trump. With that many people violating the law it makes any laws regarding the crime inert. It’s an easy law to break and people are willing to die in the attempt. With that much behind it, stopping illegal immigration cannot be done. It’s an unrealistic goal that would call for resources and brutality to enforce. Americans would not have had to worry about the problem had they not willfully participated in it from the start. It’s like prohibition and the drug trade. Everyone wants to complain, but no one wants to stop using alcohol and drugs.
The cheap labor, the drug, money, smuggling, the prostitution and murder for hire, Americans love these industries and as long as illegal immigration can provide them with a cheap and effective means to engage in these crimes, there will be no stopping it. Americans have to face up to the fact that they’re a massive criminal society that celebrates being so, and encourages it via pop culture.
Both billionaires could spend their time better on solving why the illegals leave their home countries in the first place. If things were great in their countries, they wouldn’t be coming to the US.
