(RoyalPatriot.com )- In 2021, Amazon and Facebook spent millions lobbying members of Congress to back legislation to expand legal immigration and grant amnesty for illegal aliens.
Amazon shelled out $20.3 million on its lobbying efforts while Facebook spent $20.1 million.
Both companies benefit from the import of cheap foreign labor.
Amazon and Facebook lobbied lawmakers to pass a green card giveaway scheme that would enable them to outsource American jobs to imported foreign visa workers and allow Indian and Chinese nationals to monopolize the work-based green card system for a decade.
They also lobbied Congress to expand so-called “chain migration” so naturalized citizens could bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives into the United States. As it is, seven out of ten of the roughly 1.2 million legal immigrants who receive green cards every year enter the country via chain migration, but apparently that isn’t enough for Facebook and Amazon.
The lobbying efforts by Amazon and Facebook were also vital in the push for President Biden’s massive “Build Back Better” spending bill which included a provision to offer amnesty to most of the illegal aliens currently in the country, as well as a provision for limitless immigration to benefit corporations.
And when it comes to spreading their money around, Facebook and Amazon are big believers in bipartisanship.
According to FEC records, Amazon’s top lobbyist recently donated to the Buckeye Victory Fund which transferred thousands in donations to the National Republican Congressional Committee as well as donations to House Republicans Chrissy Houlahan (PA), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA), Liz Cheney (WY), and Republican Senator John Cornyn (TX).
Other lobbyists for Amazon recently donated to Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Representatives Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Angie Craig (D-MN), and others.
Lobbyists for Facebook, meanwhile, have donated to the National Republican Study Committee chaired by Congressman Jim Banks of Indiana. They’ve also donated to Republican representatives Brett Guthrie of Kentucky, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota, and Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy. Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski, John Thune, and Rand Paul have also received donations.
Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio and Democrat Senator Jon Ossoff of Georgia have also received donations from Facebook lobbyists.
