Zuckerberg’s Open Borders Group Likes Tax-funded Lawyers for Illegals

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s open borders organization is praising the State of California for using taxpayer monies to fund the attorneys of illegal aliens trying to evade deportation.

After California Governor Jerry Brown signed off on a state budget that gives $45 million in taxpayer funds to immigration lawyers, Zuckerberg’s open borders group, FWD.us, announced that it was “heartened” by the plan.

“FWD.us commends Governor Jerry Brown, the State Legislature and organizations like the California Immigrant Policy Center and California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance who have worked tirelessly to uphold our shared American values and protect the rights of all Californians with this funding in the State Budget, which will provide access to legal aid for immigrants who are detained or tried in court,” FWD.us Todd Schulte said in a statement.


The two organizations that pushed the plan behind the scenes have links to left-wing billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) has taken grant money from Soros’ OSF since at least 2009 when it received $200,000. In 2012, ILRC took even more money, receiving $1.8 million.

The other open borders organization is the Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC). This group also has staff ties to Soros.

CIVIC staffer Tina Shull runs the organization’s “storytelling projects”, while also being a recipient of the Soros Justice Fellowship, a grant program that gives between $58,700 to $110,250 to individuals for social justice advocacy.
