Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg launches political group

NEW YORK — Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and other Silicon Valley leaders have formally launched a political group aimed at revamping immigration policy, boosting education, and encouraging investment in scientific research.

Zuckerberg announced the formation of Fwd.us in an op-ed article in The Washington Post late Wednesday night. In it, he said the United States needs a new approach to these issues if it is to get ahead economically. This includes offering a path to citizenship for the 11 million or so immigrants who now live in the United States illegally.
