Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg flew to Washington on Wednesday September 18, 2013, to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. In front of a packed audience at the Newseum, he stated that “immigration reform is vital to this country’s economy and reforming the rules to allow highly skilled workers to work in the U.S. will give the U.S. a competitive advantage in the global economy.” He also advocated that there are “eleven million people in the US who are being treated unfairly right now.” He believes that comprehensive immigration reform needs to include providing a roadmap to citizenship and enacting legislation that will increase the number of highly skilled immigrant visas. He believes that enacting legislation that addresses both of these issues at the same time will help the United States grow the economy. Mark Zuckerberg has founded Fwd.us, which has been set up to lobby on the issue of immigration. To read more about immigration reform take a look at Fwd.us by clicking here.
