Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is meeting privately with several high-level politicians on both sides of the aisle in Capitol Hill in an apparent effort to persuade them to pass an immigration reform bill. House Speaker John Boehner has refused to introduce the bill for consideration in the Republican-majority House, citing opposition to it from most members of his party. Zuckerberg said he hoped a comprehensive reform would pass not just for the high-tech workers who would benefit his company, but also for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already living in the United States.
