    Facebook tweak bars undocumented immigrants from buying political ads (Sob story)

    Full Story: https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...n-interference

    Policy change designed to help verify identity has sparked a backlash by inadvertently excluding undocumented Americans

    A new Facebook policy meant to curb election interference is also prohibiting undocumented immigrants from buying political ads, which, critics say, could silence activists and disrupt organizing efforts on the platform.

    Facebook announced last month that it would start requiring political ad buyers in the US to
    verify their identities in an effort to combat fake news and misinformation and avoid a repeat of the 2016 election when it allowed Russia-backed posts to reach millions of Americans. Because users must now confirm their social security number and submit their US driver’s license or passport, millions of undocumented people in America are also no longer able to post political ads.

    “This is Facebook telling undocumented people you’re not allowed to participate in this part of the political process,” said Justino Mora, co-founder of advocacy group UndocuMedia and an undocumented immigrant currently protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca)
    program. “They are essentially banning a certain political view from being expressed … They are going to allow anti-immigrant xenophobes and racists to have more power.”

    Trying claim criminaliens are being discriminated against...noyice they're referred to as undocumented Americans? They ARE illegal aliens..

    undocumented immigrants buying political ads is a violation of federal election law because they are unregistered foreign agents attempting to influence US elections and their activism, pressure groups, and illegal voters are doing far more to influence US elections than anything Russia could ever do.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
