We all know that our current immigration system is broken from the top down. There are 11 million aspiring Americans living in the shadows, unable to fully contribute to the country that they call home, as well as millions of unfilled, high-tech jobs that tech leaders and immigrant entrepreneurs can’t fill. We could solve both of these issues if we passed comprehensive immigration reform.
This new video from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us profiles tech leaders who traveled to Capitol Hill last week as a part of a national fly-in to urge members of Congress to act now on immigration reform.
Here on Long Island we can do our part by continuing to push Rep. Peter King to join the House GOP members that have already come out publicly in support of immigration reform, and to show his support for H.R. 15, the bipartisan bill introduced by House Democrats last month.
