Facebook Bans Undocumented Immigrants from Buying Ads

this episode is no longer available

Today on Hard Knock we discuss Facebook’s new policy that bans individuals without proper identification.

Facebook, in its new policy (reported last week) which is being publicly touted as a measure to stop Russian meddling in U.S. elections via social media, requires that all U.S. residents who purchase ads have a social security # and valid state issued i.d., effectively banning all undocumented immigrants, including DREAMers and others advocating for immigrants, from purchasing ads on Facebook.

We speak with the executive director of Presente.org, Matt Nelson.
