T-Mobile learned the hard way on Sunday that politics and wireless phone service simply don’t mix. The Bellevue, Washington based cell phone company jumped on the amnesty supporting bandwagon by posting a message seemingly in support of open borders on social media.
The company posted the message, “Borders are for crossing, not stopping” on their Instagram and Twitter accounts. They faced immediate social media backlash and quickly took the message down in response. Unfortunately for them, Newsbusters captured a screenshot of the company’s amnesty and open border supporting message before it was removed.
Did you notice the ‘sponsored’ message in the upper-right hand side of the screenshot? That means that T-mobile was so thrilled about their pro-open borders/pro-amnesty post that they were paying to make sure as many people saw it as possible.
What do you call a country without a border?
Answer – not a country.
T-Mobile would be wise to think twice before becoming advocates for a policy which negates America’s existence as a country lest they alienate a large percentage of their customers who believe in the rule of law.
