Douglas Rivlin (GrayRiv, ForumDriv)

Press Secretary to Rep. Luis Gutierrez and former Communications Director at the National Immigration Forum.

While at the NIF and possibly while working for Gutierrez, Rivlin used the screen names GrayRiv and ForumDriv at various social media sites to post propaganda supportive of massive and/or illegal immigration. His accounts included: twitter dot com/grayriv, digg.com/users/ForumDriv/history, and digg.com/users/GrayRiv/history. In all the posts I saw he didn't indicate his real name or who he worked for. I only discovered his name and affiliation after a 2/25/10 post at newsjunkiepost.com.

I've repeatedly asked Rivlin on Twitter (@douglasrivlin) if he ever disclosed who he worked for, and Rivlin has repeatedly ignored those requests.

In a January 18, 2013 press release, Marco Rubio lists some of the supposed conservatives who support his immigration amnesty plan ( peekURL.com/zycdzeU ).

To be balanced, here are some positive mentions of his plan (or at least support for his actions on comprehensive immigration reform) from those Rubio should be opposing on immigration: the Democrats and the far-left.
