The pro-mass immigration GOP megadonor billionaire Koch brothers are uniting with Facebook CEO billionaire Mark Zuckerberg’s open borders lobbying group to try to revive a push that would give amnesty to at least 3.5 million illegal aliens.
The Koch brothers’ LIBRE Initiative teamed with Zuckerberg’s FWD.us lobbying group for a meeting on Capitol Hill to push Republican lawmakers to back an amnesty for the 3.5 million illegal aliens who are eligible and enrolled on President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Breitbart reports.
“Earlier this year I started teaching a class on entrepreneurship at an after-school program in my community… One day I asked my students what they thought about going to college. One of my top aspiring entrepreneurs told me he wasn’t sure that he’d be able to go to college because he’s undocumented. His family is from Mexico, and they moved here when he was a baby. Many students in my community are in the same situation; they moved to the United States so early in their lives that they have no memories of living anywhere else.” ~ Mark Zuckerberg
We're on Capitol Hill today, hosting a panel discussion on what's next for DACA. 90% of Americans want Congress to take action on Dreamers and 80% of Americans support a pathway to citizenship for them. https://t.co/iZeItu4JzA pic.twitter.com/Ut7YHTmlSg

More recently, Politico claims to have obtained an internal prospectus (it’s multiple pages, so you may prefer reading the printable version) for the immigration reform group. The prospectus was drafted by Joe Green, a close friend of Zuckerberg’s who seems to be doing much of the legwork for the group. Here’s Politico describing and quoting the prospectus:
Under a section called “our tactical assets,” the prospectus lists three reasons why “people in tech” can be organized into “one of the most powerful political forces.”
“1: We control massive distribution channels, both as companies and individuals. We saw the tip of the iceberg with SOPA/PIPA.
“2: “Our voice carries a lot of weight because we are broadly popular with Americans.
“3. We have individuals with a lot of money. If deployed properly this can have huge influence in the current campaign finance environment.” OpenBorders
