Political analysis of the Las Vegas debate immigration dust-up between Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio is missing a key ingredient: the money factor.
You can read the lips of the candidates till the cows come home. But you'll get to the truth much faster when you learn where pro-amnesty power brokers have placed their bets and hitched their wagons.
Rubio's brazenly fraudulent campaign to paint Cruz as soft on illegal immigration is a flabbergasting attempt to distract from the Florida junior senator's faithful allegiance to the open-borders donor class.
Here's what you need to know:
Facebook, Microsoft and Silicon Valley back Rubio. Mark Zuckerberg is a social justice CEO who panders to Hispanics with pro-amnesty, anti-deportation advocacy; Facebook is an H-1B visa dependent firm working to obliterate hurdles to hiring an unlimited stream of cheap foreign tech workers.
It's no coincidence that Facebook's lobbying outfit, FWD.us, was waging war on Cruz online last week in parallel with Rubio's disingenuous onstage attack. The D.C. front group, which Zuckerberg seeded in 2013 with nearly $40 million during the Gang of Eight fight, has consistently provided political protection for Rubio as he carried their legislative water.
Zuckerberg personally donated to Rubio, as have pro-H-1B expansionist Silicon Valley CEOs from Oracle, Cisco and Seagate. Microsoft, founded by leading H-1B/amnesty cheerleader Bill Gates, has been Rubio's No. 2 corporate donor the past five years.
Paul Singer backs Rubio. The hedge fund billionaire announced his support in October. Amnesty is and always has been a top agenda item for Singer, who helped fund the National Immigration Forum along with fellow hedge fund billionaire George Soros.Read the rest of Mailkin's op-ed HERE.
