Mark Zuckerberg’s new organization, FWD.us, has just launched its first ad to promote immigration reform amongst conservatives. 

FWD.us was launched earlier this month by a group of Silicon Valley powerhouses including Facebook founder Zuckerberg.  The organizations goal is to promote and shape policies that keep the U.S. competitive in the global tech world.  The organizations first task is to pass comprehensive immigration reform which would allow for an increase in skilled tech guest-workers.  Zuckerberg and other Silicon honchos are also pushing for undocumented workers to become U.S. citizens.

The new ad features Florida Senator Marco Rubio one of eight Senate authors of the immigration bill.  FWD.us has created a subsidiary ‘Americans for a Conservative Direction’ to directly solicit conservative support for immigration reform. 

The pro-immigration ads will run in key conservative areas of the country like Texas, North Carolina and Kentucky.
