2014: Obama Twitter Account Asks for Donations for Amnesty War Chest
by Tony Lee 28 Dec 2013
On Saturday, President Barack Obama's Twitter account asked over 40 million of Obama's Twitter followers to donate to Organizing for Action to help the group wage war for amnesty next year.
Obama's Twitter account sent his followers to a website run by Organizing for Action (OFA), the "grassroots" group that formed out of Obama's 2012 campaign to help him pass his policy objectives.
"We are close to helping pass historic once-in-a-generation comprehensive immigration reform," the landing page says. "Chip in today to support this fight." The site encourages visitors to donate $15 to $1,000 or more.
Obama said it was "frustrating" that he failed to pass amnesty, which he said was his biggest goal of 2013.
If you care about comprehensive #immigration reform, support a grassroots movement fighting to make it happen: http://t.co/WiXWHi1XKV
