Sen. Sessions: Zuckerberg Spent $30 Million on Four Houses to Secure HIS Borders

Today, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) blasted pro-amnesty billionaires whose fondness for open borders ends at the doors of their "gated compounds and fenced-off communities," noting how Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg bought other four houses surrounding his own just because he wanted "a little privacy."

Sessions began by rebuking Zuckerberg - one of the billionaire elites he has dubbed "Masters of the Universe" - for going to Mexico City and giving a speech claiming that America's immigration policy is "strange" and "unfit for today's world."

"Well, the 'masters of the universe' are very fond of open borders as long as these open borders don't extend to their gated compounds and fenced-off estates," Sessions said.

As an example of the hypocrisy of these "Masters," Sessions then recalled how Zuckerberg bought four houses surrounding his own to keep people from crossing his borders and secure "a little privacy":

"I have another article from late last fall that was printed in Business Insider about Mr. Zuckerberg's actions. The headline is 'Mark Zuckerberg Just Spent More Than $30 Million Buying 4 Neighboring Houses For Privacy.'

The article says: 'Mark Zuckerberg just made an unusual purchase. Well, four purchases. Facebook's billionaire founder bought four homes surrounding his current home near Palo Alto, Mercury News Reports. The houses cost him more than $30 million, including one 2,600 square-foot home that cost $14 million. (His own home is twice as large at 5,000 square-feet and cost half as much.) Larry Page made a similar move a few years ago so he could build a 6,000-square-foot mansion. But Zuckerberg's reason is different. He doesn't want to live in excess, he just wants a little privacy.'"

"That is a world the average American doesn't live in," Sen. Sessions said.
