George Soros, the billionaire investor and speculator, has been widely known for his efforts to further progressive causes, regardless of the potential dangers they may bring to American citizens.
Recently, a Soros-funded open borders group plotted to lobby members of Congress to keep an Obama amnesty program that protects illegal immigrants from federal law. (via Breitbart)
United We Dream is the organization in question. Their mandate is to help precipitate open borders and unrestrained immigration into America, and they are funded by a variety of organizations and donors, most notably being Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Soros has been involved in a number of schemes to unravel the fabric of our society, having been known as a key donor funding the recently labeled domestic terrorist organization, Antifa, whose primary tactics include disruption and violent protests. United We Dream is just another arrow in Soros’ quiver to achieve his aims.
This lobbying campaign is attempting to prevent Trump from scrapping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects illegal immigrants under the age of 18 from federal immigration law. The DACA program, which falls under the Department of Homeland Security, has been heavily criticized and condemned for explicitly instructing these young illegal immigrants – referred to as “Dreamers” – to hide and refrain from listing any used Social Security numbers when filing for employment.

Essentially, DACA is instructing these “dreamers” not to disclose Social Security numbers they have illegally used. The use of false Social Security numbers is perjury and identity theft, both felonies and punishable by law.
In response, a 10-state coalition signed a letter pledging they would issue a lawsuit against the Trump Administration if he does not discontinue DACA. Texas previously challenged the Obama administration for a program that was similar to DACA but intended for the parents of childhood arrivals. This program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents Program (DAPA), was never passed and was formally abandoned by the Trump administration this year.
The coalition is hoping that Trump finishes the job and eliminates DACA completely.
“We respectfully request that the Secretary of Homeland Security phase out the DACA program,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote.
Proponents of open borders are more numerous than one would think, with other billionaires joining the ranks of Soros’ ideological allies. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, issued a statement from his own open borders group, FWD.us, stating, “FWD.us will fight tirelessly to protect DACA and the 800,000 Dreamers who can fully contribute to this country because of this transformational program.” (via Breitbart)
Zuckerberg has been criticized by many, including Trump’s spokeswoman last year for similar open-border sentiments. Katrina Pierson made the point that people should take the insulated billionaire seriously when “he gives up all of his private security, moves out of his posh neighborhood and comes live in a modest neighborhood near a border town, and then I’m sure his attitude would change.” (via USA Today)
It’s shocking how some wealthy individuals propagate these ideas while living is fortified, secure compounds where they will never see the consequences of their actions. Thankfully, not all wealthy people are like this, most notably our current president.
