Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will continue the efforts of the political-advocacy group he launched, FWD.us, to push for immigration reform when he meets with the top four Republicans in the House of Representatives Sept. 19.

Bloomberg reported that Zuckerberg will meet with Speaker of the House John Boehner (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.), Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) to discuss issues including Internet privacy, the economy, the tax system, and immigration law.

Zuckerberg announced the formation of FWD.us in an April 10 op-ed in The Washington Post.
