A pro-border enforcement organization says Silicon Valley billionaires pushing for amnesty are behind a heart-tugging ad campaign.
The television ads are being funded by a group called fwd.us, which has virtually unlimited resources.
"This fwd.us is a creation of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, says Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR.
Mehlman, Ira (Federation for American Immigration Reform)It is funded by a bunch of Silicon Valley billionaires, people like Bill Gates," he adds.
The television ads have been airing on conservative-leaning outlets such as Fox News. One of the ads tells the touching story of an illegal alien brought to the United States as a child, who enrolled in ROTC in high school but can't join the U.S. military because he is in the country illegally.
"There are 7 billion people in the world and lots of people have sympathetic stories, says Melhman of the ad. "But we can't make policy based on that because it affects the lives of so many other people."
Regarding the powerful figures behind the ad campaign, Melhman alleges they are attempting to appear as a grassroots organization that has the interest of ordinary Americans in mind.

As if I am going to immediately get down on my knees and ask God to intercede.
How stupid do these people think we are?
Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.
Were are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?
Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?
Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?
Left wing billionaires are a great threat to American culture. They are extremely guilt ridden and employ progressive politics to protect themselves. Rich Romans and Russians did the same thing.
Totally self-serving, American worker-loathing!
Some big corporate fat cats want to kick middle class American wage earners (union, non-union alike) to the curb, to be able to pay Chinese- and Mexican-level wages while eschewing the dangers and volatility of actually having their brick, mortar and executives within the borders of such countries.
Go ahead, hose down the talent and creativity that got you where you are, elitist, billionaire commie-lovers! /facetiousness
How about a heart tugging ad about all the people killed and families torn apart by drunken illegal drivers, or murders and rapes committed by illegals or Citizens and legal residents out of work because of illegals, or the high cost to taxpayers because of illegals.
You’d think that these billionaires could afford to hire US citizens as groundskeepers and maids, and pay them legal wages.
You can always count on Mark Zuckerberg for something useless and puerile.
Yes, by all means, put together all the sob stories you want about those poor illegals that tug at the heart strings and dull the mind. None of it changes the fact that these people are law-breakers that must be dealt with accordingly.
Doesn't cost anything to post pictures.
Here's another example of the sort of people we'd be giving amnesty to:
The first is their cultural hatred for Anglo-America. This is first and foremost part of a push to realize their dream of a multicultural USA.
The other reason is that they are the short-term beneficiaries of cheap immigrant labor.
I have a gut feeling that these persons come out of the ‘educated’ group that read Plato’s Republic and decided that that was their goal and destiny. I read the book too, but I came away with idea that the society being promoted was not what the Founders intended for this Nation or my well being. Of course it just might be a matter of ‘money corrupts’.
