Facebook Shutting Down Conservative Voices Ahead of a Very Important Immigration Vote
Facebook has removed a video by Brigitte Gabriel in which she details verified facts and figures on the cost of illegal immigration and describes the journey she, herself, went through as a legal immigrant who followed the law to qualify for citizenship.
The video was posted on June 14th and was taken down the next day - just as it was going viral, approaching half a million views and almost 8,000 shares. The video is still live on Twitter.
Facebook has cited "community standards" as the reason for taking down the video. Brigitte’s organization has attempted to contact Facebook’s support but has received no response.
Facebook has a laundry list of community standards and has become so powerful, you can’t even challenge them without them threatening to shut down your whole page. There is nothing you can do. They have a monopoly and are actively censoring speech - contrary to what they claim.
Here are some facts from the video. Every year...
- $11 to $22 billion is spent on welfare for illegal immigrants by state governments;
- $22 billion is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal immigrants;
- $17 billion is spent on education for the American-born children of illegal immigrants, known as “anchor babies;” and
- $200 billion in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal immigrants.
When you add all programs for illegal immigrants together, the cost to the American taxpayer is $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR.
