Hollywood celebrities endlessly use their status to pump left-wing propaganda.
It’s only gotten worse over the past five years.
Now a Disney star pushed one protest that made the border crisis much worse.
Mark Ruffalo from The Avengers series is one of the most outspoken leftists in Hollywood.
He even advocates for socialist political candidates around the globe.
Now Ruffalo is pushing for immigration “reform,” which in the language of liberals just means amnesty and unfettered immigration into the country.
Ruffalo pumped a campaign for “A Day Without Immigrants” where immigrants would essentially opt out of the economy for a day in an attempt to show the impact immigrants have on the country.
I stand with the thousands of immigrants pledging not to work, go to school, or shop on #ValentinesDay. Our nation depends on undocumented immigrants every single day. We need immigration reform w/ a path to citizenship now!

The supposed protest did not have the desired effect because immigrants come to the United States for economic reasons.
The overwhelming majority are not going to engage in some “woke” nonsense that makes upper-crust progressives feel better about themselves.
Other leftist celebrities jumped aboard the “protest” by lazily copying the same script.

Democrats always talk about a “pathway to citizenship,” but it already exists.
The process can be long, which is why legal immigrants get frustrated with people who jump the line and break all the rules.
There is a path to citizenship. Thousands of people complete that path every year. Do it right. Do it legal. Nobody has the right to just walk in.

America often gets blasted by the left for restrictions on immigration, but America already takes in 1 million legal immigrants a year, and that doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands that come illegally.
And according to a recent poll, Americans are not happy with the current amount of immigration into the country.
“Nearly six in 10 Americans, 58%, are dissatisfied with the level of immigration into the U.S. today, while 34% are satisfied. This marks an eight-percentage-point increase in dissatisfaction since last year…The 58% dissatisfied includes 35% of all Americans who would prefer that immigration be decreased, 9% increased, and 14% who want levels kept the same. Last year, those dissatisfied were about equally as likely to favor an increase as a decrease, but now the predominant view among the dissatisfied is for less immigration. The proportion who want less immigration has nearly doubled from 19% in 2021 and is well above where it was in 2019 (23%) and 2020 (25%). At the same time, calls for more immigration into the country have dropped.”
In other words, all the trends are heading in the opposite direction, which is why progressives so desperately rely on celebrities like Ruffalo to signal-boost their message.
