REPORT: Sen. Marco Rubio, Mark Zuckerberg To Discuss Immigration Reform At Facebook HQ

Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg continues to remain active in politics, particularly when it comes to pushing immigration reform with his FWD.us political advocacy group, as CNN’s Political Ticker blog reported that Zuckerberg will welcome Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) to the social network’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., Wednesday.

According to Political Ticker, Rubio is in the San Francisco Bay area on a fundraising trip, and he has been heavily involved with efforts to reform immigration in the Senate.

A source told Political Ticker the meeting between Rubio and Zuckerberg will be informal, adding that “their shared commitment to fixing America’s broken immigration system” will likely be discussed.

When Zuckerberg officially announced the creation of FWD.us in an op-ed published by The Washington Post, he cited as one of its goals:

Comprehensive immigration reform that begins with effective border security, allows a path to citizenship, and lets us attract the most talented and hardest-working people, no matter where they were born.
