Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us Launches 'Day of Action' for Amnesty
Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg's pro-amnesty FWD.us group is calling for a national "Day of Action" on Thursday to pressure House Republicans to pass amnesty legislation.
"This week marks one year since the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform--and tomorrow, we are mobilizing supporters like you to tell House Republicans we cannot wait any longer to fix our broken system," the group wrote in an email to supporters Wednesday. "It’s imperative Congress acts now and not later. That’s why we’re calling on reform’s biggest advocates to commit to calling Congress on the Day of Action tomorrow."
FWD.us is asking that supporters "commit to call House Republicans on Thursday and tell them the time is now for comprehensive immigration reform."
The high-tech group has been pushing amnesty legislation to get massive increases in the number of high-tech visas, even though scholars and studies have proven that America has a surplus--not a shortage--of high-tech workers.
