Zuckerberg kicks off tech lobbying push on immigration

New York (CNNMoney) - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and a number of other leading technology CEOs are forming a public interest group to push for immigration and lobbying reform.

The group, named FWD.us, and pronounced as Forward US, is pushing for a significant increase in legal immigration and a path to citizenship, especially for those educated here or who came to the country as children.

    Frankly, I am sick of seeing tech companies LIE about needing foreign workers to fill their jobs.

    The truth is, they want slave labor, to enrich themselves, and they know Americans will not work 60+ hours per week, for modest salaries.

    That is the real truth, about why they want to import foreign workers.

    He sounds just like his President, doesn't he?
    FWD.us quite an interesting name for someone who, if I recall correctly, aligned himself with Romney during the election.
    To his credit and like any successful entrepeneur he's stepped back redirected and refocused his priorities.

    Is Zuck going to pay for :
    'Former' Illegals immigrants using EBT cards?
    Car insurance premiums increases because 'former' illegal immigrants are driving without insurance?
    Hospital operation costs as 'former' illegal immigrants flood emergency rooms?
    Pay for reforming the school system to compensate for english-as-a-second language classes?
    Pay for the salaries of Spanish-to-English interpreters in key services such as hospitals, 911 dispatchers, police?
    Language classes for key services?
    Etc., etc. etc...
