So, the standard for immigration according to Zuckerberg is how nice someone is.
This should be interesting, given that there are 165 million nice people in the world who would rather live in the United States than their third world home. (Gallup 2009 poll)
One wonders why Zuckerberg purchased the homes around his own to buffer him from undesirables. Maybe they were less nice than the people he meets in the high school tours.

For those of you who don't know: in lieu of paying the prevailing wage to Americans with STEM degrees (science, technology, engineering, math)Zuckerberg is pumping MILLIONS into the push for amnesty - so he can bring high-tech workers from India, china, Taiwan, etc.

I doubt if his lobbying group could care less about "civil rights". The ONLY thing his organization is committed to is cheaper wages in the high-tech field.

I think the mindset of "they are taking away our jobs" is counter-productive. I am a software engineer, I have a pregnant wife and 8 children ages 15 and under to support, and I am aware the task may be initially more difficult if there is more competition. But I believe in dealing with competition by becoming better yourself rather by making those around you unable to compete. I also believe that when you have a community of productive people, the world around you gets better. US could absorb an extra 165 million productive members of society. That would be roughly one extra person per household. We just need to make sure they are actually productive, rather than admitting them for some political reasons.

Follow the money. Zuckerberg doesn't care about anything but camouflaging his intent to get cheaper labor.

Sure competition is better for everyone but there is a reason there are laws and they should be followed.

I immigrated here and the process took years and alot of money along the way. Maybe I should have just been a criminal and skipped all that and got it for free and stolen my job?

I don't have a problem necessarily with people from other countries but I do have a problem with people coming here and demanding our country change to accommodate them. Case in point a highschool in California kids not allowed to display the US flag on Mexican flag day???? Are you kidding me???

Its nothing but accommodation and it gets us nothing but taken advantage of.

Did you ever ask yourself, if everything is so great about accepting ALL the diversity of these other countries then why are all these people from other countries clamoring to get OUT of those countries and get here?

Don't be a fool. These people are nothing more than political pawns being used/manipulated for votes at any costs to our society.

Uh evidently you missed the news article just this last week that there is already 86 million workers sustaining 148 million benefit takers.

You seem pretty intelligent and productive so I suspect you can do the math. Them problem is that our govt is lying to you about real unemployment numbers. It is like double or more. They changed the criteria over time to make them look better. People who have quit looking/given up are no longer even counted. How convenient.

We don't even have jobs for the people that are here now and you want another 165 million people here to compete for jobs that are not available?

That will drive wages and income into the ground and there will be a massive portion of those living in destitute conditions like they did in the countries they came from.

I don't see alot of upside in that scenario.

The larger issue is the govt actually wants more people dependent on government benefits and programs. That is how they train them to vote for more and bigger govt. They want it to perpetuate itself while they remain in power to "manage" all of us peasants.

Good for Zuckerberg, I commend him on his service to help people.

Why do so many people make such a big deal out of immigration reform?

Most of these posts about immigration reform is the same o'l same o'l. The law is the law. The undocumented are criminals and need to be deported. They are taking our jobs, yada yada yada.

Why would we not want to help people that are already in a bad situation come out of the shadows, keep their families together and help them progress. Every one wins. Instead we have politicians using immigration for winning elections, we have many in the talk radio world convincing that the undocumented are the worst human beings on earth further dividing and turning their fellow men against each other.
I know they have broken the law, like most people have. At what point are people going to forgive and help people instead of making their lives worse.

God bless people like Zuckerberg for trying to help people progress instead of making their lives and effected family members worse.

Good for Zuckerberg. God bless him for helping people better their lives.

Why are so many people against immigration reform. All you here from these post is the law is the law. They broke the law and should be deported. Let me ask, should you go to jail for 6 months for breaking the speed limit? Politicians have used their fellow mankind as political footballs, many talk radio celebrities has played a broken record of anti-immigrations propaganda that has further divided people, and turned people against their fellow man.

Enough is enough. Forgive these people and help them progress. We as a nation will be blessed for it.

The LA Times recently posted an article, "Obama Deportation Numbers Are Misleading," that shows that the Obama administration, the Illegal Alien lobby, and the major media outlets have been in collusion to depict the "high" deportation numbers. The exact opposite is true since the beginning of the current President's policy. Interior deportation has and will be lower than 1973 rates. This is leading towards more people overstaying their visas and currently, more Illegal Alien minors crossing the border. Obama has just recently instructed border patrol to not turn back those Illegal Aliens on record as having entered illegally as priors, but to let them pass IF they don't have a major criminal record. After the first Illegal Entry, it is a felony each time thereafter.
