A lobbyist in Mark Zuckerberg’s investors’ group is promising cautious legislators in Congress — and conflicted journalists — that an amnesty for millions of illegals will actually raise wages for Americans.
The promise of wage gains for Americans — a $600 extra in 2031! — was pushed Thursday by Susan Rice, the far-left director of President Joe Biden’s Domestic Policy Council.
In turn, that $600 promise was retweeted by Alida Garcia, a senior lobbyist for Zuckerberg’s FWD.us advocacy group:
More than 50 economists agree. The Immigration reforms in our Build Back Better legislation would over the next decade:
✅Raise annual wages for all workers by $600
✅Create more than 400k jobs
✅Grow GDP by $1.5 trillion
…and benefit ALL Americans. https://t.co/hr8i1dH5ip

It “stretches credulity” for investors to claim they support a policy that would raise wages, responded Steve Camarota, the research director at the Center
